We've still got the other code to contend with tomorrow. :roll:

Going to a footy mad friend's for a BBQ lunch tomorrow. A conversation today went;

Friend: How long do you think you will hang around?
Me: When does the footy start?
Friend: 6.30
Me: Until then.

If you were up in Brissy you could have been watching the World Championships for 1/5 scale model cars. Apparently the weather was good as was the racing... Just another hobby!

LOL. Yeah. I sometimes respond to the odd "Are you going to watch the game tonight?" With a "Nope. Not really into Tennis." (Or insert any random sport which is not having a Grand Final.

Amusing to watch the confused looks on peoples faces.

When people ask if I'm going to watch the State of Origin I usually ask which teams are playing... :twisted:

That's pretty funny, I am going to have to remember that!<p>

Getting home and checking the scores (so I don't sound totally uninterested at work on Monday) - sounds like it was bit of a one sided farce anyway.

Well today I am off to the "Meet the Moneydork" eventcache near the Brisbane airport by myself as all other members of THENANKS have chosen the NRL Grand Final! :roll: I'm sure there'll be plenty of interesting geocachers there who will be able to converse about more than just football. :) <br><br>Cheers <br>Mrs NANKS :wink:

Just ignore ALL ball sports. Or when asked a question, just say the game was never the same since the Perth Broncos lost in 1998. That should confuse anybody.

These grand finals do have a use!

I well remember looking for a cache during the AFL grand final last year. It wasn't an easy find and it was beside a small sporting venue, inside which I could hear the game in its final throes. I was wishing like crazy that it wouldn't end and people spill out before I found the cache!

In the end I didn't find the cache as it had gone missing. :( But I am not sure who was more anticipating the end of the game - them or me!

:D I am used to being embarrased :twisted: by Mrs Nanks not being interested in the greatest game of all ( cricket in the summer though ) but you others are a disgrace :oops: . Infact it has given me a good idea for a puzzle cache that will force the locals into some football interest. :idea:Cheers Mr Nanks
