The Big Freeze at the G.

What an amazing thing to raise money to help end motor neurone disease but I missed it. I was watching “Wonder Woman” and I got there 5 minutes into the game. The score was 7 points to one. This is an amazing game to watch, especially due to the cause.

At quarter time the Magpies are up by 7 points. I look up Neale Daniher’s name and I see that he coached Melbourne so he would be going for the Dees but they lose the lead at half time. Collingwood is doing really well. I love James Aish and how he came from Norwood but I don’t like it that he plays for Collingwood.

We donate 50 dollars to The Big Freeze.

In the 3rd quarter the Demons get the lead back.

In the last quarter, and I am saying this with all honesty, these are the top 4 quarters I have seen. But the Dees get it done, the Dees win. This game is all for a great cause, to freeze Motor Neurone Disease.
