Carn the Mighty Hawks!

Dad's footy team – and mine – is Hawthorn: the AFL Grand Final is about to start, "Up there Cazaly" has been sung, and the Hawks stand ready to defeat Freo. 

Thank God that Cazaly himself, when coaching Hawthorn sixty years ago, gave them their present nickname – prior to that, they'd been the Mayblooms...

I predict Hawthorn will win, by the skin of their teeth: the Fremantle Dockers are tough. Up the mighty Hawks!

UPDATE: the Dockers just didn't have it in them; Hawthorn won by 15 points. Excellent!
