Day out at the Footy – Port V Brisbane

Hi All

Yesterday Kieran and I went to the Port v Brisbane game at Adelaide oval, we actually go to most Port games due to holding members general admin tickets. Yesterday’s game was much closer that it should have been Port rocked up looking like the expected to win and a result looked lazy and unwilling to run. Check out the video below for part of the warmup, and the Port pre bounce count down right through to the first score.

AFL rnd 3 Port Power vs Brisbane Lions, pre game warmup bounce count down and first score. You have to love it he atmosphere pre bounce with Port's unique count down to the first bounce the crowd really gets involved

Port had plenty of chances to put Brisbane away especially early but could not kick straight and Brisbane made the most of there opportunities and a one point had 4 goals from 5 inside 50’s. Port finally kicked away in the 3rd but let the Lions back in the last as it looked like the Power players had put the cue in the rack and decided they had, had enough for the day. As a result the game finished within a goal and spend most of the last few minutes down the Brisbane attacking end. Port were lucky to get away with the win.

After the game we headed over the Strathmore for a drink whilst we were there we ran into my old next door neighbour Bob and his family in the pokies so we hung around for abit had a few more drinks and chatted a few drinks later Damo drove into the city to get Kieran and I as Bob had dinner reservations. The 3 of headed out for dinner outside the city in the direction of home – at this point 5 or so Jacks and Coke in I really needed to eat. After dinner we sat around and talked shit for abit and Damo and I went head to head at darts on his phone and I came out the big winner something like 2 games to 5, doubles were so much easier to hit on the phone…

After that we headed home but it was a great day out with Mates something that was one of the reasons we built this site, to encourage both ourselves and others to ensure and help people find away to get out relax and unwind with there mates. Throughout the footy season if we go out before or after a game this year I will try to share our time out with you all, this wont be every game as going out is not cheap but we will try to do something every few games.

Cheers

Matt
