afl grand final

Pretty sure my husband was successfully converted to an AFL fan this morning in the wee hours at the Twist!

Great game, great crowd, great beer even at 6am! Was bloody nice to be in a room full of aussies again. My husband was actually quite blown away because 'Everyone was SO friendly! Even the people going for the other team!'.

Who was there and who's going again next week??

GO THE SAINTS

Re: afl grand final

Didn't notice that there was a pub open to watch it ... may have to be there next week!

I was impressed that the Saints managed to claw their way back into the match! Pity they didn't get one more ...

The Twist was rad. I was there with me eagles jersey on. Everyone was great. EVEN THE PIES FANS!!

Being a mad eagles fan (my wife a dockers fan), even we said it was probably one of the best matches Ive seen. And thats coming from a guy that has played footy his whole life and even watches torrents of WAFL and past AFL games in his spare time! That last quarter had everything. Both goddard and maxwell took great marks in the last peroid.

Best sport in the world. Unfortunately I wont be there for the replay next week. Will be in Munich for Octoberfest

I definitely remember spotting a few eagles fans in the crowd!

Pretty sure the place we are staying in Munich is run by an Australian or something (according to my wife), so theres a good chance you can watch it there. Either way there will be quite a few playing it id imagine

Re: afl grand final

Try these in Munich (2 of my old haunts):
http://maps.google.de/maps/place?hl=...22706331565288 (take the S-bahn to Rosenheimer platz)

http://maps.google.de/maps/place?cid...J9GrjAeV88C1Ag Right in the centre at Marienplatz (down the stairs and the Irish bar is on the left - Aussie bar on the right) both bars owned by the same guy I think and this is the one with the best atmosphere!

Re: afl grand final

Great match, very exciting. I'm a Swans fan but was barracking for St Kilda.

Anyway, as a neutral, I think it's great there will be a replay. I'm sure being in Munich will be no impediment at all to watching the match. (I'll be in Morocco though, hmmmm...)

Re: afl grand final

45 hours of flying and I spent 50 hours in Melbourne. Sounds like I should have just gone to the Twist.

I made a vow that I would be there to watch if the Saints ever won another flag, with a bit of luck I'll break that vow on Saturday.

For those near Wollishofen, the Shamrock is also opening on Saturday morning.

Re: afl grand final

The GF is also showing in Geneva, details copied over from Geneva Australia Yahoo group:

G'day Geneva Aussies,

Following a very exciting AFL Grand Final which ended in a 68-68 draw, we
have the very special opportunity to watch two live games of Aussie Rules
this year! This Saturday 2nd of October at 2:30 pm Melbourne time the opening ball will be bounced. That is 6:30 am in Geneva and Pickwick's Pub will open up to show the game from 6:00 am.

Come along and meet up with other Aussies and feel like you're back home as Collingwood Magpies once again play the St Kilda Saints. They will have the big screen and audio system set up and full hot breakfast and drinks
available at the bar.

For more information on how to find Pickwick's Pub please see::
www.mrpickwick.ch

Mr. Pickwick's Pub - 80 rue de Lausanne, 1202, Geneva
You're welcome to turn up on the day, but if you think you'll go, it's
helpful if you can send Pickwick's a message to let them know:
info@mrpickwick.ch

Re: afl grand final

Yep, it's on again at Oliver Twist - so we can all watch the Cats beat the Pies for the third time this year!
