|Hey V ... Today is the day that Melbourne stops. At 2.30 pm the ball will bounced at the MCG to commence|
the Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final. The battle this year is between Geelong (The Cats) and
Collingwood (The Magpies). The streets will be deserted, the shops will do little trade, house auctions are non
existent. Punt Road near the MCG will be clogged with traffic from about 12 noon and again at 5pm and the yells
of football fever resound around television screens throughout Melbourne. "Go Cats, Go Maggies!" I don't really
mind who wins as long as it's a good match with thrills and spills for all .... Cheers J.
