I am very happy to say that after a slow start to the season South Melbourne is third on the ladder and going strong. As for Collingwood, the Warriors seem to be picking up the pieces with three wins in row. But they are still a very outside chance, and if sixth place Wollonging won and Collingwood lose they're gone.

On the holidays I went to two soccer matches. South Melbourne vs Perth was the first I went with my cousin. South won 1-0. As we got to the car park my cousin had a bit of trouble figuring out how to use the jack to replace the flat tire we had acquired on our way to the car park. I also got to see South beat Collingwood 4-0.
