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.

Man, I have no idea what I'd say to my high school class.

I think I'd just let the pipe bombs speak for me.

Well and Vitamin B, man.

My memory goes when I'm tired, look there's um, you know, James. God knows who everyone else is, they're old anyway.
