Odd Woman Out!


I've been odd-woman-out all weekend!
The Rugby Grand Final was on!
While all Australia went crazy
I wished the whole thing gone!
Even my friends, all 'old ladies',
Were swept up in the 'thrill'.
I found the TV coverage
A positive over-kill!
To disguise my lack of interest
I chose a team to support.
I chose 'St George' for it's 'English' *sound.....
That was my only thought!
That's how I won the Grand Final!
What do you think of that?
But don't tell anyone the reason!
 Keep it under your hat!

* I have dual nationality!


When in the town, busy shopping,
In admiration I was stopping,
To view these blooms along the way!
I only hope they make your day!

The flowers are gorgeous. And I loved the way you won the rubgy pool! I feel just like you do about all sports in general. (Of course I've never seen rugby -- maybe it would be the exception -- I doubt it tho!)

No interest in football in this neck of the woods ... but the enthusiasm is infectious.
Happy Ruby Tuesday.

You feel about Rugby the way I feel about AFL here in Victoria! Just to survive, you need to know something and support something!
