Grand Finals Buzz-generating thread
Okay, these forums are unnaturally quiet, so here's my attempt at poking and prodding (probably should have done this a week ago). The Grand Final is in two days' time, so let's get talking about it! Predictions, hopes, dreams, let's hear it.
Of course, things are made difficult by the fact that none of us have actually seen all of the finalists, and so we really have a poor picture of what the field of competition is like. Attendees to the Auckland finals are best-placed I suppose, since they've seen almost two-thirds of the national finalists - so you guys, who are the Auckland frontrunners? Also, Wellington's "Brains?" seems to be getting some good buzz from the punters there, so I'm very intrigued by what I've heard about that one.
I'd also recommend that people watch the city finalists from the various centres that didn't progress to the nationals, as that can help to give a picture of the calibre in those respective cities. Not a perfect gauge of course, but better than nothing. I want opinions, goddammit, I want debate, gentlemanly disagreement (and also the slightly less-civil type, as long as the insults are colourful).
