Burninated Trivia and A-League FOOTBALL

I've had a semi-eventful weekend the past few days. As has been the pattern recently, on Saturday we spent almost the whole day looking for a place to live. I've got to say that it is really starting to wear thin.

After Church on Saturday night we went to a Trivia night that the CYB (Cypriot Youth of Brisbane) were hosting at Cyprus House (or the West End Club as it is now known). I really enjoyed it, except for our table (which Andrew and I autonomously named 'The Burninators') coming second by 3 points after leading the contest for basically the whole night. I think that it was rigged ;). It was a really fun night though.

Today after watching another impressive performance by the indoor team (they won 4-1), we went to see the inaugural A-League Football match in Queensland and Suncorp Stadium between the Queensland Roar and the New Zealand Knights. I was really impressed by the turn-out (~20,000 if i recall correctly), and the game wasn't that bad either. Queensland basically dominated the whole game from start-to-finish, but lacked any real final sting to capitalise on their possession. However, they did end up scoring two late goals to win the match 2-0, with the first goal a real cracker.

  1. Con: yes, no more Brisbane Strikers

    Mel: I would hardly call a 1-0 flukish goal win an 'arse kicking', but yes, they did beat Arsenal (please also note correct spelling :P).

  2. heh heh heh, memory recalls that they used to be the queensland lions, and then they changed their name, wonder why...
    ...oh wait. maybe it was because a better _football_ team had that name! let's see what code is second on the list now!
    a/s (going back into hibernation, i suspect)

  3. I believe the Brisbane Lions replaced the Brisbane Bears. However I don't know if that was before or after the Strikers replaced the Lions.

  4. memory recalls that the fitzroy lions merged into the brisbane bears to become the brisbane lions. being over 5 years ago, i'm fairly sure that was both before the qld roar replaced the qld lions and before the lions/roar replaced the strikers. a/s
