it's over for another year... and everyone that follows the eagles in western australia is devastated. they were beaten fair and square... by a stronger team, and madeline was so sad. it's been hilarious - doug has a cd of footy theme songs and a few weeks ago he blasted the whole lot a few times over and maddie got hooked on the west coast eagles one. she sings it all the time and always shouts out when she sees someone wearing one of their shirts or jerseys (which obviously she has seen a lot of this week!) and calls them my eagles!
she was out with dougs parents at the shops today and when she heard that they had lost, she kept asking them why? why? what happened grandma!
oh well, there is always next year boys... :)
