IT’s ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I arrived home about an hour ago to the delightful news that both Oakshott and Windsor are not going to contest the next election which all but Guarantees two seats for the National Party  but as I was preparing to write  short post on that fine prospect. But then I hear that Gillard has called a caucus ballot for 7.pm tonight. For Labor true believer’s like Ray this is the final chance.

I just hope that its over before the competition that really  matters kicks off tonight, namely the Rugby League  State of origin.

Anyway over to you Comrades

#QUEENSLANDER !!!

I am very far from being any sort of sports nut, usually the idea of sitting down and watching any kind of game on the TV is just too painful to contemplate and yet my daughter has had me watching the State of Origin series this year and boy did I enjoy the match last night!

Clearly the best team won, but what would you expect? After all they are all QUEENSLANDERS!!!!

One thing that did blow me away last night was just how well my daughter understands the rules of the game which was something I was not really expecting given how uninterested in sport we are here at Chez Hall.
I look forward to this time next year when the mighty Maroons stand a better than even chance of making it eight in a row.

Very loud Cheers indeed Comrades

How our flag /should/ be.

What do you do when your 12 year old comes up and announces that she wants to watch the State of Origin game?

What do you do , as a long time supporter  of the Anti football league, when your 12  year old daughter comes up and announces that she wants to watch the State of Origin game?

Well I did the only thing that a good father can do and I immediately suggested that we watch the game together and you know what comrades I enjoyed the experience, It helped a great deal that QUEENSLAND thrashed the Blues but I have to admit that I am warming  (slightly )  to the idea that watching sport can be pleasurable:
