This is a cricket blog, but sometimes it's okay to talk about other sports. So I turn my attention to the footy.
Holy fucking shit, Essendon won. The Bombers somehow pulled off a miraculous win. That is one of the closest and best matches they've had in a while. Patty Ryder did some seriously amazing stuff with his last minute rucking, and his tackling. Jack Anthony from the Magpies got them so close but not close enough.
Shit. Nerves are still running high after that one. Great match.
But let's not forget the real reason those players were out there today: to celebrate Anzac Day and the spirit of our Anzacs. Great men who fought for our country, some surviving and some not, and those very many men and women still out there today representing Australia.
Australia is behind all of them.
