This one has happened again, so rather than get a new post today, we simply modify an old one for a new champion!
I must admit it was a very weird feeling this morning, as although I knew Sam was in the final, I thought it was being played in the middle of the night & was due out an the aiport early to head up to Sydney. I was still without coffee when walked into the Qantas Club and saw 40 odd people huddled around the TV. My heart sunk, as I thought "Shit another natural diaster/terrorist attack" but much to my relief and excitement I realised they were watching Sam. I put my bags down and tried to look at the score when all of a sudden everyone was cheering, clapping and high fiving strangers - she had won!
It was so joyous to see complete strangers get so excited together and a very happy way to start the day.
I get goosebumps just thinking about it and I know I'm not the only one.....
