The nation watched Melbourne dominate the Western Bulldogs in the AFL grand final with friends, family, barbecues, and more than a few beers.
Earlier this week The Examiner shared the story of Melbourne fans Stan Plummer and Malcolm Cowan.
Mr Plummer remembered the Dees last premiership in 1964 and was eager to see another in his lifetime.
On Saturday night, he got what he had been wishing for.
"Stan was ecstatic. He is so with it that he was very enthusiastic about [the win]," Mr Cowan said.
The two were joined by two other friends to watch the game at Mr Plummer's home in West Launceston, and devoured pies, chips, and sushi while enjoying the match.
"It was a really great night and very emotional. That final moment when the siren went, it was a tremendous moment," Mr Cowan said.
Though concerns crept in about half time as the Doggies came back, spirits soared when the Demons took back the game.
"I thought it was a terrific moment for football as well as the Demons," Mr Cowan said.
"I was really pleased with the players too. The intense pressure they kept on the Bulldogs, and the fact they didn't give up. They knew they were good enough."
Mr Plummer, 88-years-old, had previously joked he could not "cark it" until Melbourne had won again, but Mr Cowan said his friend had revised his statement and now wanted three premiership titles in a row before he kicks the bucket.
The game was recorded and there is no doubt the pair will relive some of the best moments of the final in times to come.
With plenty of celebrations in the state's North for the final, Tasmania Police were kept busy throughout the evening.
"We were busy across the district with a whole range of jobs, the type of things that usually occur on grand final day," Inspector Michael Johnston said.
"It is traditionally one of the busiest days of the year for us and this year has been no exception, certainly in the Northern District."
On Sunday morning, officers conducted a traffic operation on Wellington Street, Launceston, which caught two drink drivers.
"There were a few people charged with offences under the Road Safety Act last night, but not a high number," Inspector Johnston said.
"Generally driving behaviour was pretty good."
