AFL Round 10: You can’t kill Collingwood

by Danielle Eid

Having cable TV is always something I take for granted until I have the pleasure of watching my Collingwood boys live in my pjs and fuzzy slippers.

With Dale and Didak named in for the side and the MCG advantage it was known to be a Collingwood victory from the begging, until I saw who was umpiring.

Quote: “Oh crap! McLaren’s umpiring, we’ve lost already!”

Despite the umpire problem I still had hope that the boys would win a much needed game.

The first quarter began with Leigh Brown’s unselfish goal assist to Didak.

Our first free kick against us is given from Umpire McLaren, GO FIGURE!

Quote: ‘Yeah that’s right, just hand them the goals McLaren!”

Leigh Brown is actually doing well for someone who is yelled at repeatedly from most supporters. He is tackling hard like a grizzly bear and is accurate at the goals.

Wow I really do regret yelling at him last week….

Quote: “I’m really SORRY Leigh!”

MCG LIGHTS GO OUT: A warning of a blackout for Port Adelaide perhaps?

Nathan Brown gives away a free kick.

Quote: “Damn, I’d be really angry if he wasn’t such a SPUNK!!”

The second quarter comes as Collingwood fight back on the score board and Port continue to miss goals. While Nathan Brown JUST misses one (bless his adorable heart!) MY SUPERMAN Jack Anthony kicks two in a row.

I’m going to steal the Carlton slogan because I feel like it fits the moment of the match.

Quote: “Port know were coming”

The third quarter brings nine Collingwood goals in a row, clearly like the MCG lights, Port are suffering a Power failure.

The Mighty Magpies won the game by 38 points after a fourth quarter which required a whole team effort from the defenders, goal sneaks and the talents of younger players such as Sidebottom. Hopefully Malthouse realizes his hugging the boundary theory should never be used again.

Overall it was a good game which showed the footy world that even when they are down the Collingwood boys WILL NOT DIE!
