How you look at this game depends on whether you’re an optimist, a pessimist, or a realist.

The Pies blew the Hawks away in the first half, raining goals on the hapless brown and gold mob as they moved the ball brilliantly and converted their chances. The Hawks stopped the bleeding after halftime, before the young brigade showed up in the last two periods to register a draw.

Optimist? Pessimist? Realist?
