We are now in our third AFL season living in Canada and fortunately the opening game for the Cats is covered by TSN2. Will and I will be getting up at 2:30am to watch the game and hope for a good opening win!
The Cats are playing the Bombers, my Dad’s and brother’s team, so there’s always another reason to win this one! Will and I will cheer quietly in the basement… not wanting to wake up Sam or Alec, the non-believers.
Post script: Geelong won the opener for the season, Anita had a 20 hour day an spent the next week recovering before getting ready for the Geelong Hawks game, which they won too! Unfortunately our good start was spoilt by a loss to Fremantle! Oh dear.
