I've already posted but I'll introduce myself anyway.
Born in Palmerston North, raised on a dairy farm, shifted to Tauranga and went to Otumoetai College then finally up to South Auckland.
Only ever played 'park' league but was an age group rep and senior club level hockey player back in the day.
Married with no children - some things even the docs can't fix ..... But we do have two 'stolen' cats who decided they'd rather live with us than next door.
Run my own business in the building industry.
Used to follow that other game but started to find it boring then one day watched a Winfield Cup game on a Friday night and got hooked. Used to follow the Steelers but can't stand St Merge. Then started to follow the Warriors as soon as I heard they'd signed Bell as captain .... may have changed my mind though if I knew more about Plait.
Been a season ticket holder for a number of years.
Best Warriors moment:
Two from the same game vs the Roosters semi, Pricey walking around the field during the Juniors game to a standing ovation and Wiki's charge.
Sonny's passing RIP.
Funniest forum moment:
Facepalm/Factfacts spending days on VOT trying to convince us that the official name for the games played in Sept/Oct are not the 'finals' but all are known (only it seems by him and the NRL) as the 'semis' including the final game which was actually the Grand Semi, not the Grand Final. I have to say though, the guy was consistent and would not back down.
Hahaha, i remember that, I think i was remarking on our chances of making the "semi's" at the time, for some reason you latched onto that one word and went on and on
about it, even after i agree'd "semi's" wasn't the technical name for the finals series, but was infact a common enough term that is used when referring to the final series,
I wondered why i smiled every time i hear it used, thanks for reminding me.
but hey sometimes people need a win of some sort, especially when they're so used to losing, so good on ya Mick.
Anyway... I was born in Hastings, played yawnion at school but because of my size, was always put in the forwards, which i hated, so i quit.
Played rep softball and soccer as goalkeeper.
Lived in Aussie for about 10 years, got to go to all the big Warriors games in sydney, the Parra game when we first made the eight, semi's, grand final etc.
Married with two kids, living in Auckland.
Been a league fan since the Winfield cup hit our screens, first supporting Manly, then dropped their arses for the Warriors.
