Today is the Rugby League Super League Grand Final to see who wins the Super League. This is means that a team can get the most points and come top of the league but they don’t win the Super League. The top eight teams play off for the Super League title. Theorectically this means that a team can come 8th but win the Super League which I personally think is crazy and the only reason I can think for these play offs to take place is that it extends the season.
Saints, our local team, are playing Wigan their arch rivals – think Superman and Lex Luther, Batman and er, well it would seem Batman is particularly spolit with arch rivals so we’ll forget about him, Judge Dredd and Judge Death. Anyhoo, you get the message – if there is one team the Saints don’t want to loose to in a Grand Final it’s the pie eaters from Wigan!
Auntie Ann went to the last game at the old stadium which was one of the semi finals – and the following day where you would normally be, and I quote, ‘buzzing’ she felt flat. AA did manage to get out of the stadium without being arrested or sectioned however did sit through the whole match shaking! So much so that she was convinced the guy next to her must have thought she was, and again I quote, ‘a nutter’. After the match were everybody normally gets off quickly people were hanging round and shaking hands with the people at the side of them – people they had stood next to for years, commenting on the game and yet whose name they didn’t know and who they may never, ever see again.
Back in May AA went for a photo shoot at the stadium with the team and she finally sent me a copy, so I decided in view of the Grand Final I’d have a little blog-away.
Below is the photo – all you have to do is pick out my Auntie Ann – it’s not hard (Bernard couldn’t do it!).
I’ll even give you some clues – aren’t I good – and they’ll be rules – ohhhhhhhhhhh! (Boo, suddenly it gets complicated)
AA looks nothing like me or rather I look nothing like her
AA went for her haircut the week after and wished she’d gone the week before
AA is somewhere near the team coach (something she didn’t know at the time and a friend said he probably wasn’t even there but was superimposed after the fact – he’s not the most popular coach they’ve ever had)
All you need to do to enter is pop the number you think relates to my Auntie Ann on a comment – if you click on the photo you should be able to get a better view so you can pick carefully as one or two did look kinda manly – mind you it could be one of those!
WHAT YOU WIN
A myeloma buddy, what else? AND if the Saints win today, I mean WHEN (for goodness sake don’t tell my Auntie Ann I said if) they win I’ll double the buddies to two! (mmmmmm Buddies)
RULES – Because unfortunately it would be chaos without them!
One entry per person
In the event of a tie break – I’ll get Buddy to pick a winner
No toys allowed on the furniture – oh sorry that one’s for Buddy
Closing date is next Friday 8 October – more to give me time than you and I’ll post the winner here next Saturday
Ohhh it’s all kicked off – I better go and watch otherwise B will only tell me about it later!
