Special AFL Opening Day Late Night Insomniac-Heavy Open Thread

Congratulations!  You made it here!  On a weekday no less!  This realistically means that you are either an insomniac

Dave Attell

a huge AFL fan

or you’re lost.  Either way, welcome!

Today’s/Tonight’s/This morning’s Opening Day match features the Richmond Tigers taking on the Carlton Blues.  Even though Richmond made finals last year and the Blues ended up with the Wooden Spoon, it should be a lot closer than expected.  Maybe some of Hippo’s Donks magic will rub off on the Blues.

 

Enough with the pre-game show. Every one grab your Captain Carlton Pillow Pet

and get with the gifs, pics, and sterling commentary!

Just finished my DVR viewing (I was UP at 5:30, but had to go to work and do other annoying fucking shit).

GODFUCKINGDAMNIT, Carlton.

This was fun. I will learn the rules better and be a better fan next time. Enjoyed it tonight anyways.

The only good thing about the colder weather, I can wear my St Kilda scarf and tell everyone who asks* about the AFL!

*No one asks

I still am learning this game, was rooting for Carlton though because they were the underdog, looks like they have fucked up their lead/chance to win though. 3 hours is enough to see when a team looks beat if you picked up the rules

Damn, I should have turned this on when I woke up. Oh well, time to walk in the cold-ass rain to the gym because I hate myself apparently. Also, Australia is on stupid time. All of it. Especially Adelaide.

Ok. Quarter break. Balls, who is supposed to be better this year? and after that are either supposed to be good?

That’s it for me.

All mouth and no trousers for the majority of the recent “converts.”

I got this ready for a Carlton behind, but Richmond got one instead. It is getting posted anyways
