A game of opposites

Saints V Demons. Top V Bottom. Heaven V Hell. Saints are now 10 - 0. If they win next week they'll break the club record for most games won in a row at the start of the season.
You know, I haven't worn my scarf, or any other Saints paraphenalia, (or changed my icon back to the red, white and black), all season. I so want to get out there and wave the flag but I'm too scared to in case I jinx everything.

Friday Fill-ins

1. It's cold and foggy in the mornings.

2. Cherry tomatoes.

3. My favorite health and beauty product is water.

4. I'd like a nice long ride.

5. Well, first of all there was this giant, monolithic thing in the middle of nowhere.

6. I'm not telling; those were the cast of characters in a recent dream and it was not telling that either.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to very little - glass of red, maybe some TV, tomorrow my plans include the Saints going for 10 in a row and Sunday, I want to take it as it comes!

9 - 0 and a Flickr contact

Very close game today, too close! Saints beat Brisbane by 16 points but it was touch and go for most of the game. Brisbane were in front for much of the third and fourth quarters. The Saints rallied though and finally won the day. Phew! Geelong are also 9-zip as well. The two teams are miles ahead of the rest of the competition. Round 14 is shaping up to be a real clash of the titans.

Today I also met up with a Flickr contact. Jube (Tim) from San Francisco, on a short holiday in Melbourne. We met up at Healesville Sanctuary and had a very pleasant afternoon strolling around, snapping pics of the animals. And snapping pics of our respective Flickr projects as well :)

Jimmy and Jube have a day out

4. The bigger picture is often more important than the details.

5. In nearly 10 years, I've done bugger all.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Langy's retirement function, tomorrow my plans include not much and Sunday, I want to watch the Saints win their 9th straight game and maybe meet a flickr contact from the USA!

8 - 0

Another win for the Saints. Only by 19 points this week - Essendon put up a good fight. Still, it's enough to keep them top of the ladder. Geelong are also 8-0. Round 14 is the big showdown! Bring it on!!

And still top of the ladder. Saints smashed Collingwood by 88 points tonight. A win over Collingwood is always sweet and to crush them like that is the sweetest. Go Sainters!

Saints beat the Bulldogs by 27 points yesterday. Still top of the ladder. Geelong is the only other unbeaten team now. The press are starting to talk of the Saints as the "real deal". Now I don't want to get ahead of myself here, but......WOOHOO!!
