GF Series Game 3 Mar 15
Well, it's Friday night, so what else are you going to do except watch these teams get it right? You could be out chasing PYTs (pretty young things), but it's close to midnight and something evil's lurking from the dark, so why not switch on Fox, grab your favourite brew and watch game 3. They say, say, say you need to win, win, win in Perth to get a Championship and although Perth haven’t won in Melbourne this season, they don’t need to. Perth want their 9th flag, but Melbourne are saying to the flag, "I want you back to back"
Both teams have held their serve so far in the series and the winner of this game is likely the winner of the GF. Game 3 is the crunch game of the series. No one wants to be defeated, especially on home court. Billie Jean King was the Queen of the third set and once said “Champions keep playing until they get it right.” Basically, the message is don’t stop until you get enough. Winning championships is not as easy as ABC, it takes teamwork and skill, and a bit of off the wall thinking by coaches.
The coaches can ask their team the big questions, but it’s the man in the mirror that makes the difference. Perth fans are known for being welcoming fans. When I saw a game there with my non-Perth merch on, they told me don't you ever come around here, don't wanna see your face, you better disappear, basically they knew I was bad. People always told me be careful of what you do and that advice is good advice for a dangerous man.
Back to the game. Melbourne I think may have turned the tide a little bit and I think have a slight edge going into this game. I’m tipping Melbourne to get this one and it would make my day if Dean Vickerman moonwalked out of the stadium like a smooth criminal.
