On Friday night, Justin and I attended our first footy match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (
always referred to as the MC‘G here). The game was the most hyped of the round between Collingwood (the Magpies, aka the Pies) and our fair Carlton (the Blues). The Pies (last year’s runner up) and the Blues have one of the most intense and longest lasting rivalries in footy history, so we hoped this would be a good introduction to the game.
We had a lot more fun than I expected but weren’t sure the best way to describe it via the blog. On the way home, we thought about putting a dual post up with both of our impressions. After some discussion, we decided to take our own twist on this idea: haiku. What follows is a haiku by each of us on our impressions from Friday night’s match.
By ‘Repeat,’ I mean that Carlton annihilated Collingwood. Final score: Carlton 122 : Collingwood 62.
EDIT: A true Melburnian has informed us that the Melbourne Cricket Ground isn’t always referred to as the MCG. They just call it the ‘G.
