Geelong hope for Victoria

Around this time last year, I wrote about the lack of Victorian teams in AFL Grand Final but this year we have a Victorian team Geelong competing in the grand final against Port Adelaide and with a real chance of winning.

Once again we don't have a Melbourne team but at least we have a Victorian team and if the Melbourne teams can maintain the momentum they had this season then it will not be surprising to see a Melbourne team in the grand final next year.

Geelong have had a wonderful season which started with winning the pre-season cup and now need to lift the big one. The problem though is that last time around when Port Adelaide were in the final in 2004, not many people gave them a chance but they went on to beat the Brisbane Lions. I hope that this doesn't happen this time around.

But there is a Melbourne team in a grand final and this is the Melbourne Storm who are playing Manly in the National Rugby League final on Sunday. The Storm are in a grand final for the second year running. After a disappointing final loss last year, I am also hoping that the Storm will this time win to cap their excellent season.

Grand final week is always a special week in Melbourne with all grand final related activities taking place and I hope to catch up with at least one of them during this week.
