AFL Round 13 – Brisbane v Geelong: Thank goodness for the Ararat trots

I viewed proceedings from the Gabba on Sunday night from a couch at the Helm Bar in Surfers, the bride and I sharing the Happy Hour special of 4 Coronas and bucket of ice for $20. All was well with the world as we overlooked the lights of Chevron Island at the 20 min mark of the last quarter. I thought it sufficiently safe to leave the couch and walk 20 metres to have a bet at Ararat trots, Itsnewstime subsequently saluted at the $2.90 which duly paid for several of the ice filled buckets. I returned to our vantage point to find the bride screaming at the big screen- scores are level she said and I asked where ? Thought she was talking about the Wallabies Lions game on the next screen. As we were drowning our sorrows an hour later over a Parmesan crusted barramundi I received a text from Jetstar suggesting our flight home the following morning had been cancelled !
