That's right, everycat!
Tomorrow is the Australian Football League's Grand Final for 2009.
This year's top two teams, the Saint Kilda Saints and the Geelong Cats, will face off to see who will be this year's champion.
And YOU can be a winner too! Just join in my AWESOME Footy Finals Fever Competition.
From now until game time, 2pm Australian Eastern Standard Time tomorrow (26 September), every blogging animal of the non-human variety can enter their tip for who will win the game, and predict the winning points margin. To enter, just post your prediction, with your name, in the comments of this post. Like this:
Pablo, Geelong Cats by 999 points (an exaggeration).
Feel free to add a little cheer for your team, but these will not affect the outcome of the contest. The winner will be the blogger who guesses the winning team with the closest points margin to the actual final points margin of the game. In the event of a tie, the blogger who posted their tip first will win. One entry per blogging household. And I can change these rules whenever I want (but I'm not likely to).
A $40 (Australian dollars) donation to the Hobart Cat Centre (my local) will also be made in the winner's name... and I might even send you a little something!
A hint from Pablo: in general, most AFL matches are decided by under 30 points, but it's not unheard of to have a points margin of 100 points or more. In last year's Grand Final, the the Hawthorn Hawks beat the Geelong Cats by 26 points. If you're interested in studying the teams' form, or keeping up with the score during game time, you can visit the AFL's website. Otherwise, just make your bestest guess!
Start tipping... NOW!
