Mancat Monday

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.

Cheers,
--Pabs

Happy? I am ecstatic! GO PIES!

I think we can win again this week since we just beat St Kilda about 4 weeks ago.

That's a great Monday stretch. Don't know what's up with mum. She suddenly started singing about something manic and says she can't get it out of her head now.

Great stretch, Pabs!

Mommy and I are upset that we don't get Aussie sports on our channels here. Your teams have MUCH better names than any of ours! (And are sure to be more fun to watch, to boot!)

Super stretch, Pablo. We like to sit with our Grampy when he watches football, but it doesn't matter to us who's playing... it's all about the scritches!

Pablo, that is a wonderful photo of you!

Christine and FAZ said...

That is one beautiful S-T-R-E-T-C-H. I am sooooo sad that my good furriend Roscoe has gone to the Bridge.

SS wants me to tell you that her thesis has gained approval from all the examiners and she is officially on the par with our furriend Dr Tweety :)

Hi Pablog,
Nice to meet you! Boy, you live in Australia huh? My mom's daugher lives over there now. She's a professional ballet dancer. You'll have to tell me all about your life in Australia! Sounds fascinating! Nice to meet you my friend!
