I’ve found my calling in life…

as a professional footy tipper. 


Geelong d Bulldogs by 2 points 

North Melbourne d Freemantle by 13 points 

Adelaide d Carlton by 44 points

Collingwood d West Coast by 22 points

Essendon d Richmond by 40 points

Sydney d Port by 55 points

St Kilda d Brisbane by 16 points 

Hawks d Melbourne by 22 points


Not only is that 6 out of 8 tips right, I was also within a few points for the winning margin for THREE games! WOOT! (And Geelong could have won by a much larger margin given that they were leading by 37 points at one point.) I am so much better at this than fantasy tennis. Maybe I’m just too emotionally involved in tennis players to be objective about it all? 

In other news, swine flu seems to have officially broken out in Australia, with Victoria leading the pack with 9 confirmed cases so far. Footy stars do not seem to be immune to possible exposure: here

Roland Garros started last night and I still have yet to check any scores. Except for those tweeted by dootsiez. Clearly I’m just channeling my frustration into AFL, which serves me fine considering the team I’m barracking for has yet to lose a game this season. 

Random trivia: a friend of mine has the same birthday as Gary Ablett Jr, and her boyfriend shares a birthday with Roger Federer. FREAKY?
