If you have not heard the the Canberra W-league team is in the final this weekend 17 January. If they win i will no longer be able to use this joke. Rocky, Wobbly and myself have been using this joke for years, mostly while at Super 14 games in April / May, which in Canberra usually means a sub zero night game, while sitting in the grandstand with other mad Canberra fans.
So here is (maybe) its last airing.
