Ahhhh... it's just another Mancat Monday (I wish it was Sunday...) and I'm having a big mancat stretch on the grass in the backyard (time for a bit of mowing next weekend, Nick?) and having some mancatly reflections on Week 1 of the Australian Football League's finals series.
It was a HUGE weekend in the footy (sorry for the bland, photo-less post on Friday, the internet's acting strangely at home), with results going almost as I predicted (as Gypsy and Tasha noted, 3 outta 4 ain't bad).
Week 1 finals results:
Hawthorn Hawks defeated Western Bulldogs by 51 points
Collingwood Magpies defeated Adelaide Crows by 31 points (You must be happy, Huffle!)
Sydney Swans defeated North Melbourne Kangaroos by 35 points
Geelong Cats defeated Saint Kilda Saints by 58 points
The two teams who were eliminated (due to their low ranking) were the Crows and the Kangaroos. The two highest-ranked winners, the Cats and the Hawks, enjoy a week off now, while the other four teams fight it out this weekend for the right to play the Cats and the Hawks in Week 3 of the finals. Here's the draw for Week 2:
12 September: Western Bulldogs v Sydney Swans (winner to play Geelong in Week 3)
13 September: Saint Kilda Saints v Collingwood Magpies (winner to play Hawthorn in Week 3)
I'll give you my tips on Friday.
