Having been born and bred in Brisbane I am a die-hard Broncos and QLD supporter. Up here we don't have much time for "Mexicans" (ie NSWers) particularly around this time of year!! You really have to watch out if you declare your support for anyone other than the Maroons.
My beloved Broncos are doing superbly this year and I am thinking that a Broncos/Canberra Grand Final will do nicely, thank you. I cannot stand that little Joey Johns - best player in the world I think not! Thank goodness Freddy Fitler is not playing origin any more - I find myself less nauseated watching the game!
Come Wednesday night the streets of QLD and NSW will be deserted as football lovers far and wide shut down normal operations to watch the best series of the year, and the most important game, State of Origin 2..
Good luck my darlings - Gordy, Darren, and the rest of the Maroons..
