The Drought is Over...The Cats are premiers

The long and painful wait finally came to an end today as Geelong won their first premiership in 44 years when they annihilated Port Adelaide by 119 points and sweetest of all, I was there to see it!

That's a whole post of it's own that will have to wait.

Meanwhile, a few pictures of the triumphant Cats, the team I have supported all my life, through the heartbreak of 5 Grand Final losses.

I've waited my whole life for this day, now I can die happy, Geelong are premiers.

Go Cats. Steve johnson, reformed character and star player, winner of the Norm Smith Medal for best on ground in the Grand Final.
Nathan Ablett had a great game and kicked three goals.
Brownlow medallist Jimmy Bartel was fantastic.
Gary Ablett is a genuine superstar, AFLPA MVP for 2007, Coaches Award Winner, ABC Footballer of the Year and son and namesake of legend Gary senior who never won a premiership. He was there today to share in and celebrate his son's joy and the Cats triumph.
The sight I've wanted to see my whole life, Geelong with the AFL premiership Cup.

You Beauty, Go Cats.
