[Ranna Let The Yankees In The Chip Shop]



There are some moments in life that will stay with you forever. Yesterday's match was one of them.

I’ll never forget the intensity of finals footy, of sitting in a stadium of 95,000 other people who live and breathe this great game as I do. I’ll never forget the feeling of unity and pride, sitting amongst the cheer squad in an almost exclusively Carlton bay, all screaming for a common cause. I won’t forget our thunderous noise, an enthusiasm and passion I have not seen from us as a collective for quite some time. I’ll never forget prematurely singing our theme song when we knew we had it, then belting out several renditions of it after the siren and again later with the players.

The last decade and a bit has been filled with more heartache than anything for us Carlton faithful. But days like today happen and it makes every second of unwavering support through the pain and the misery worth it.

The fact that it's all at Essendon's expense makes it somehow even sweeter!!

It's just the greatest! Taking their spot, then kicking Richmond out of the finals and finishing atop Collingwood now that they've been rubbed out as well. It's the perfect rival-smashing trifecta.

The only thing that could make it better would be getting to finally beat Hawthorn, but that's not a realistic task.

If I didn't know better I'd say we were dreaming.

I was glad I was at that match. One of the best games I've been to. The win alone was great, but when thinking about the opposition, all those free kicks and the crowd, it made it even better.
