AFL Round 16: Pies need wake up call

By Danielle Eid

OK, OK, let me get this straight.

Collingwood lost by 45 points and Nathan Brown has an ankle injury?

Does anything else want to go wrong?

Truth be told, I did not watch a minute of this game; I was out at Crown Casino Cinemas to watch Harry Potter.

I did think of the boys while I was out. I wore a short black and white dress and took the opportunity to wear in my formal heels.

The temptation to text my uncle for the score during the movie wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, probably because I had confidence that they would win.

Medhurst playing his 150th and Nathan Brown back in the team, why wouldn’t they win?

We get to the food court and I finally send a text and get a reply.

Half way last quarter. Coll 50 Haw 94. Sorry dude.

I was pretty shocked at first, then I was upset, then annoyed, then I couldn’t give a stuff.

I know that if I had been watching I would have been much more upset.

I get home at 11.30 and check the Collingwood site for the details.  Apparently Collingwood was the stronger team in the first half but the Hawks came out of the blocks in the second half with seven goals.

“Crap … ”

I scroll down and continue to read.

“AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!”

“Why, WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Hawthorn: Mitchell (shoulder)

“Mitchell, too? I love Sammy … OMG, poor thing!”

Well this officially SUCKS! And I’m not talking about the losing part.

You know what: I’m happy we lost! That way the boys can WAKE UP and see that even when you win game after game it doesn’t mean you STOP TRYING!

In conclusion: “AHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

“I’ll be in my trailer!!!”

PS. My feet are  FREAKIN KILLING ME!!!!

    Interesting story to say the least. Haha.

    I saw Nathan Brown’s injury. Almost made me sick.

    Did you see Sam Mitchell cop the ball in his face? Funny stuff haha.

    Danielle,

    “You’ll find me in my trailer” is one of the best lines I’ve read this year.

  3. Danielle says:

    Thanks for the comments

    Josh: NO didnt see a minute of the game and THANK GOD FOR THAT. i would be the one needing the emergency room, not Nathan!

    Paul: HAHA thanks,im known to be a drama queen and wear the crown proudly i might add!

    Danielle,
    I’m not sure what would have been worse, the movie or the match.
    In my opinion Fraser on the sidelines was a huge loss for the Pies.
    Do you know when he will be back?
    If not I hope you’re ready for a pounding on Friday Night!

  5. Danielle says:

    Damian, i loved the movie! im a HUGE POTTER FAN.
    Fraser is not really an issuei think we are better off with Cameron Wood.
    As for Friday night you have won from now.
    if Nathan isnt back Fev’s gonna have a party, lets hope he keeps it G rated!

  6. Steve Healy says:

    I just watched the replay on One HD.

    What about Presti? He is in doubt this week too.

  7. Damian Watson says:

    Fev might have a picnic this weekend!
    The Pies might even need to play Toovey on Fev!

  8. Danielle says:

    well boys, no backline= NO chance of winning!
    i love Presti, Nathan Brown is the next Presti!!
    Toovey..ON FEV????
    Toovey..ON FEV????
    Toovey..ON FEV????
    are u SERIOUS! OVER MY DEAD BODY!!!

  9. Damian Watson says:

    It would be funny if that occurs!
    Who knows Mick might have to resort to that option.

  10. Danielle says:

    Damian please.. for my sake dont mention the Toovey on Fev thing, because Mick is crazy enough to do it and im SCARED!!!

  11. Andrew Starkie says:

    Danielle, that’s what you get for missing a game of footy. Don’t worry, the Pies were probably due. It’s our fault anyway. We played the Hawks into form.

  12. Danielle says:

    Haha not really. i think its the fact that my boys can take the thought of playing without me watching!
    my absence left them lost, i think they missed me too much.
