There's a fisrst time for everything
Well, yesterday I had two wins in sport: the Swans and the Tigers, but it felt really wierd supporting a NSW team ... icky, in fact. Of course, I used to be a Balmain fan, so supporting the Tigers wasn't hard. But supporting the Swans, who are half South Melbourne anyway, was really something else.
Still, no doubts about who I'll support this afternoon: North Qld all the way. If the Tigers could do it, the Cowboys can too.
Incidentally, I'd love to get a video of the Tigers/Dragons game and use it to show youngsters a classic example of a champion team self-destructing under pressure - that's what the Dragons did. They were a little rusty and when they were behind towards the end of the game, they just tried too hard and made too many errors. Not the first and won't be the last.
Go the Cowboys ...Posted by Hughie at September 25, 2005 11:07 AM
