Cox’s nightmare dates to his teenage years in Texas when his own mother is involved in the horrific ordeal.

“I was 16 years old, I was scared for life,” Cox began.

“This girl named Ashley, lovely gal lovely gal. One of those friends you know is like the friends you take to the next level.

“He was talking back and forth and she was like, ‘Oh, I want to see this movie,’ and ‘Oh, okay, why don’t we go together?’

“Guess what the movie was… Chicago.

“I had no desire to go see Chicago, but I wanted to meet her, so as you know, I’m going to see Chicago.

“I’m before I can drive so my mom takes me to the movies, she doesn’t know that little bit. She throws me off and I go into the movie theater and I ask her where she is.”

“Oh, sorry, something’s come up,” she goes.

“So I’m alone in a movie theater in Chicago and I just watched the whole thing. I watched everything myself.

“I didn’t want my mom to know I was in love with my boyfriend, so I didn’t want to do anything. I had to sit there for two hours to watch this movie.

“She came back and picked me up and asked how it was. I said, ‘It’s a great time because my mum loves it, she’s a lovely gal, unfortunately she’s going to China next year and I won’t see her again.’

Cox will need to put a terrible day behind him when he lines up against the junior premiership geldings on Saturday afternoon.

The Pies have been the surprise package of the AFL season, producing heartbreaking wins week in and week out.

They are 7-0 in certain games by six points or less and an impressive 11-1 when the margin increases to 11 points.

In a bonus for the Pies, the match will be played at the MCG, a ground where the Cats have lost nine of their last 13 finals.

Geelong made a stunning comeback from last season’s match to win by 13 points.

The minor premiers head into the clash as heavy favourites.
