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!

The Cure – Hello Goodbye.

Last week I posted from the Art of McCartney, with Alice Cooper’s cover of Eleanor Rigby.  Today, I found this classic cover, but it features the Cure….with Paul’s son, James on keyboards.  Love to know what you guys think.  I quite enjoy this take on it.    ~RB~
