The 3 day test strikes again!
It’s a shorter post today but I had to highlight an article which I just saw had come up on The Age. No resting on your laurels, Geelong fans; I hope you enjoyed your 48 hours, because we’re already discussing whether you can do it all again next year.
Early in the life of this blog, I posed a challenge 3 days after the Dallas Mavericks beat the Miami Heat (boooooo!) in 6 games to win the NBA title. Surfing through the various web sites, there was basically no articles relating to the Mavs’ actual victory. It was all about the draft, the future for both Miami and Dallas; basically anything but the quality (monumental) of Dallas’ victory.
It clarified for me the voracious media cycle and the precarious nature of success in sports in the modern era. As soon as you have something you have aspired to for so long, people look to the next story – who or what is next. I’ve lived through the greatest season ever – Essendon in 2000 (only lost 1 game), and by March, I wanted it again.
Your turn, Cats
