Warriors wow

I am so proud to be a New Zealand Warriors fan right now.  After 16 years and only making the NRL Grand Final once before, not only have the Warriors made the NRL Grand Final, but the Junior Warriors have made back to back Grand Finals and the Auckland Vulcans have also made the Grand Final of the NSW Cup.

Here's hoping that next Sunday provides a 3peat of Joy for Warriors fans.

Brisbane Roar + 96.5fm supporting the community

What happens when tragedy strikes a refugee family?  My favourite team and favourite radio station come together to play the final preseason game as a fundraiser for the family.

Thank you Brisbane Roar and 96.5 for having a social conscience and putting this on.

Memes and Trolling

Ever wondered about Internet Memes??  There was a great item in the today about the origins of 10 of the best internet memes.
5. The O Rly? Owl: A photograph of a snowy owl with an amusing facial expression was taken by photographer John White in 2001, before being snatched and superimposed with "O Rly?", thus creating a meme commonly posted on forums as a response to a debatable statement.
9. Futurama Fry: In season two, episode 11 of cartoon Futurama, the main character Fry is seen to make a suspicious face. This is now a meme, with text superimposed on to the still image, generally saying something along the lines of, "Not sure if trolling ... or just stupid".
