Goal of the season!
Rugby league convert Karmichael Hunt kicked this absolutely beauty from outside 50 last night, his first goal in AFL footy. The Twittersphere went into meltdown as the Suns led the unbeaten Cats 62-51 at halftime, before sanity, and the Cats, prevailed.
There’s a good argument that Adam Goodes’ close range goal in the fourth term of the Swans/Kangas match, after Lewis Jetta’s brilliant sideline dash, was a far worthier contender for Goal of the Day. The Swans wouldn’t have snuck a one point win without it either.
There’s an equally good argument that the author of this brief report is a tosser, for having mercilessly bagged both the Suns and their creator-on-high, Lord Demetriou, a few weeks back.
For now, let’s celebrate a good night’s entertainment from Karm and the Suns in their home venue of Emoticon Stadium, or whatever it’s called. By the way, did anyone else think the Cats players were less than warm in their embrace of Gary Ablett after the game?
You can understand that. Because even though Geelong accounted for Collingwood a couple of weeks back, you have to think the Pies would still have the Cats’ measure in a big final, as they did last year. If Ablett was still around though, it might be a different tale.
Any other sporting thoughts this weekend? Share them here. Comment hard and comment often because Tory is hungover and she’s moderating today. Heh heh heh.
