Umpiring The Grand Final!

 It was such a beautiful day for yesterday's Grand Finals. Nelson was umpiring Northcote vs Wallan. 
Lined up for the national anthem.
 Nelson throwing in from the boundary.
 
 
 
 
 
 I've never noticed how high he jumps to throw in!
 
 
It was the most relaxed I've been at a grand final. 
As it didn't matter which team won, I could 
just sit and watch it with no stress!
 The weather was perfect. 
First my coat came off and then my cardigan.
 The umpires all received a medal as well.
Nelson was very pleased to get to do a grand final 
in his first year of umpiring. He hopes he'll get a finals match in the seniors football in a few weeks.

Well done to Nelson... he will go a long way with his umpiring, I'm sure... Looks like you all had a relaxed time at the game... I love the long-ish hair & beanie on the boys!
