The wierdest feeling in sport
OK, after almost a week I think I've got a handle on it.Sunday's NRL grand final produced the wierdest feeling for me because I was wearing an old Balmain Tigers jumper but cheering for the Cowboys.
Up to the moment of kick-off I wasn't sure who to cheer for because I had been a Balmain supporter until Balmain ceased to exist and morphed into the Wests Tigers. Actually, to be fair, I really became a Broncos fan after they won their second premiership, but I retained the Tigers as my second team for a long time.
But shortly after kickoff I found myself cheering everything the Cowboys did and remaining eerily quiet when the Tigers had the better of the game. The feeling afterwards was very odd ... I was wearing he winners' jersey but felt like I'd lost the game.
Not sure what to make of it but I think the Balmain Jersey will now be consigned to the training paddock ... or I might keep it in case the Tigers play Manly in the final soon ...
Go Broncos!Posted by Hughie at October 7, 2005 2:40 PM
