Qld Roar, Qld Roar... uh, whatever
So the Roar won tonight. I'm now a member with my tickets to 5 of the next 6 home games. Watch them not win a home game for the rest of the season. Pessimist, me?
Matt Scolaro was almost right. When he left the Reunion last weekend with the Roar down 2-0 or 2-1 he said they would win 3-2. Well, they were 3-2 until the third minute of extra time... (it finished 3-3) so you can imagine that I was very nervous during extra-time this week. But we got the win thanks to a goal from Reinaldo.
Reinaldo scored, finally, because he didn't have time to think. Simon Lynch finally scored last week [his second goal, the first was a penalty] because, again, he didn't have time to think. Don't let these strikers think!
The A-League's slogan this year is "90 Minutes, 90 Emotions". Are they kidding? For a Queensland Roar supporter, there's just one emotion for the whole game. Fear. How will we fuck it up this week?
The Rosalie 1986 21year reunion was last week. I got to see quite a few people I hadn't seen for a while. Of course, I embarrassed myself by not recognising a lot of people. Of course, I never hung out with them at school, why should I remember them now? Luckily my Ambassador, Boycat's Mum was there - she introduced herself to people and got their names. (And all the Phoneman family goss.) Jeez, Javier Sanchez looks like he should be playing in Serie A. Paul looked well-rested, strangely. Avio is balding. Whimpy is just himself, but 20 years older. I'm babbling.
