Who better to talk about all our big Grand Final week feelings with than Paul Kelly? The patron saint of music and spiritual totem of footy fans all over Melbourne is performing the pre-game entertainment at Saturday's game, and he tells us about his lifelong love of the game, the special guest who came to his weekly local footy training, and the feeling of doing a perfect drop-kick.

He lays out the criteria for any great footy "character", tells us which team has the best song, offers a preview of the fan-specific socks he'll be wearing on Grand Final say and gives us the lowdown on the Kelly family Grand Final sweeps.

"It's not the despair that kills you, it's the hope," he says of being attached to a team. Paul has a special way of capturing the emotion inside every footy fan, a sensation typified when listening to the opening strains of Leaps and Bounds or reading his poetry. Hear him read Sonnet to a New Sherrin here.

Paul's going on the road for the rest of the year, touring in support of his new poetry collection, Love is Strong as Death; his recently released record, Thirteen Ways to Look at Birds; and his annual Making Gravy Christmas shows. Find out when he's coming to your town over on his website.

Our artwork was designed by Steph Hughes, and our theme song is 'Here if You Need' by Wet Lips.
