Kecik! 12

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

For those of you who don't know, our local Rugby League team, the Parramatta Eels, open the NRL finals tonight over in Auckland against the New Zealand (nee Auckland) Warriors. The ground was sold out earlier this week and Sky football expects a bigger audience for this than for any All Blacks match - a big call indeed.

'One-eyed' was a phrase Yvy wasn't familiar with, so I will explain it - it means a fan who only sees things one way. Their team's way. Every decision you get was deserved, every decision against you is a disgrace and an outrage, your team should win the title every year or there is something wrong with the world. Referrees are always idiots (except those rare occasions when they give a decision your way - then they are geniuses), other teams are always cheats. Kecik only had one eye open at a time for most of her first two weeks - no idea why, but she seems to have grown out of it already.

Yvy (and, just recently, her mum) really took to Rugby League - but then, it is the greatest game of all. Nothing else compares as a test of skill, strategy, talent, stamina, guts and determination. Next time you tire of watching soccer players taking dives, or basketball players trash-talking about how tough they are (its a non-contact sport, ya nancys!) tune into Rugby League and see men at work.

Here is a pic of us on the day we brought Kecik home from the hospital: the outfits were Yvy's idea, I kid you not.

Wish I could get one-eyed about somebody in the NFL (American Football). Tough since my Oilers left town.
