Saints storm into semis

Aaron Hamill"St Kilda has set up a Wizard Cup semi-final showdown with Essendon after an effortless 62-point win over Richmond at Telstra Dome. The precocious Saints were at their very best against a Richmond side, which lacked the class to match their opposition.

On the back of a powerful forward line performance, St Kilda led by 25 points at the first change and rarely looked like being headed from that point, eventually winning 2.15.11 (119) to 1.7.6 (57)." [more]

"St Kilda 2.15.11 (119) Richmond 1.7.6 (57) ST KILDA will meet Essendon in the AFL Wizard Cup semi-finals next Saturday night after a comfortable 62-point win over Richmond at Telstra Dome today. The Saints, rich in developing talent, seized the initiative early in the match and thereafter held the Tigers at arms length throughout. St Kilda jumped the Tigers early, showing more polish in their forward movements, to lead by 20 points inside eight minutes, and with Fraser Gehring kicking three goals, established a 25-point lead at the first change."

A Once in 4 years day

Today is February 29, the day that comes once every 4 years.

Scottish tradition has it that on February 29 a woman has the right to propose marriage to any man she likes - and if the would-be husband refuses, he's liable to a £100 fine. [more]

But for us Arrigo boys who are enjoying a weekend alone without the little ones, we are going to celebrate with a sleep-in, some DVD watching and lunch at a local Hog's Breath Cafe. It cant get better than this if you are 10 years old!!
