Grand final fever hits Queensland!

This meme pretty much sums up what is going to happen this Sunday when the North Queensland Cowboys face the Brisbane Broncos in what is an all Queensland Rugby league Grand final in Sydney.  The fact that there are no New South Wales teams in the grand final is a first.  In all honesty, I was hoping the finals would be held in Queensland, but I guess sponsorship deals and the fact that the final is always held in Sydney means that it will be a while before they hold it in another state.

The big question is….who am I barracking for?  I am of course a Brisbane girl, but came to live in the north of Queensland a few years back.  So, now my allegiance has changed.  I know Brisbane have won a few premierships before and with Wayne Bennett as Coach who has won 7 out of the 8 finals he has coached a team, that the Broncos would be the favorites.  But…I am a fan of the underdog, and I think many in the North as well as a lot of fans south of the border who hate Brisbane are going to be cheering on the Cowboys for their first ever Premiership.

Whatever happens…it’s going to be a great game.

GO COWBOYS!

My Top Ten Song List – Number 4.

 

Who could forget the sing along scene in Almost famous, when the band sang this song and there was a sense of unity once more.  Tiny Dancer by Elton John is my pick for my top ten song, number four.  It’s just such a beautiful ballad with Elton’s talent as a piano man showing through.  I do remember though, that there was another version with Tony Danza instead of Tiny Dancer sung instead.  :3

Elton John : Tiny Dancer.

 

 

“Tiny Dancer”

 

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

Jesus freaks out in the street
Handing tickets out for God
Turning back she just laughs
The boulevard is not that bad

Piano man he makes his stand
In the auditorium
Looking on she sings the songs
The words she knows the tune she hums

But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you and you can hear me
When I say softly slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you and you can hear me
When I say softly slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today
