The Cats Win the Brownlow Medal

Well one of them at least, Jimmy Bartel.

It's another part of what could be the most successful season by any football team in history, although the vital and most important component is the premiership, to be contested on Saturday.

In the bag already are:
The Rising Star Award- Joel Selwood
The VFL Premiership
The Liston Trophy, best &fairest in the VFL- James Byrne
9 All Australian Players, the most by any team ever.
The Brownlow Medal- Jimmy Bartel
The Minor Premiership- finishing three games clear on top.

Remaining targets:
The AFL Premiership
and
the Norm Smith Medal.

Having said all that, the only one that really matters is the premiership, without it all the rest are just bridesmaid material.

Carolyn is getting very nervous about Saturday.
I feel confident.

We have left Geelong and are now in Gippsland at Auntie Ev and Uncle Ken's place at Leongatha. We'll be here for a couple of days before heading back to Geelong.
The ferry trip from Queenscliff to Sorrento went smoothly. We spent a couple of hours looking around Queenscliff beforehand, it's a lovely little old seaside town with plenty of cafes and galleries and highly-priced gift shops. Carolyn and I spent the first two nights of our honeymoon there some 21 years ago so it will always have a special place in our memory.
