Just keep Grand Final day clear!

Collingwood logoDon’t you just love it? Unbridled, blind optimism is virtually mandatory if you want to be a Collingwood fan, but with the triumphant and emphatic return of Nathan Buckley, the imminent return of Josh Fraser and the return of belief and form for the rest of the team, optimism is running at such high levels that there are probably even some fans who think Anthony Rocca won’t get suspended.

But the best bit is the way fans start to keep Grand Final day clear of commitments… “Just in case!”. Don’t plan a wedding, auction, election, birth or funeral for September 29 because it’s guaranteed to upset someone.
