Love Is In The Air! (Round Five – Life After Barry)

“I love you, man” “No, man – I love you!” “You’re the best” “No, you’re the best!”

It is a special time for Geelong. The premiership drought has been broken and the club have won the first five games of 2008, including yesterday’s win over a thugless Sydney. Talk is building already that this team could go through the season undefeated and most other sides probably think they are untouchable! But within the Geelong team itself, it seems that there are few limits when it comes to touching…

Check out Cam Mooney and Matthew Stokes yesterday! In the final minutes, and with the result well decided, these two produced a couple of the most unashamed displays of man-love we’ve seen on an AFL field in ages. The first hug was quite affectionate and lingered for a looooong time while the second one…ever heard of the expression ‘get a room?’ And you thought they were a happy team at Hawthorn!

If there is any player at Geelong who deserves a little love and affection, it’s Gary Ablett Jr. He killed them in the final quarter and with that receding hairline and new beard, he is looking more and more like Fraser Gehrig every day. What’s not to love about that?

But let’s face it – the Cats are so hot right now that Cameron Ling could walk down the streets of Geelong and have the pick of any girl he wanted! Geelong – putting the ‘F’ in the AFL!!!

One at a time, ladies – one at a time!

But Geelong is not the only football club where there is plenty of love going on – check out yesterday’s other matches:
