Default Re: 50 years following unsuccessful sports team

Borderstone,

Your prediction may come true, because my beloved Melbourne Football Club has just qualified for the Australian Football League finals for the first time in 12 years.

I am over the moon with excitement and pride (and relief). My 87-year-old Mum is feeling the same (and she obviously hasnít got many seasons left). Melbourne last won the championship in 1964 when I was 2 years old. Mum and my older brother started following the club in 1965 and I became a supporter in the late 1960s. My daughters just turned 20 and donít remember their club playing in the 2006 finals when they were 8.
