Last Friday the Carnegie stand was full of drunken Mosesís that use the crowd as the red sea. I put in more movement than the players on the pitch at times because of peopleís inability to go ten minutes without a drink. The day they put a big beer tank on the roof of the Carnegie stand so that drunks can insert long straws into them is the day everyone will be happy. The fans will able to watch the game and the drunks will be in heaven.
Obviously they are some problems with this concept. Letís say if you tug on a straw and now the tank is leaking a bit. Tug all the straws off and itíll be raining beer inside the Carnegie stand. It rains inside the Carnegie stand anyhow so it wonít make any difference. I am sure that more than just my frugal self would be more than willing to bring an empty glass from home to the game to catch the beer. Itíll certainly be a lot more refreshing than the rainwater that I was exposed to the other night. After all who knows what goes on in them clouds?
Then again the Rhinos could just start playing better rugby league so that no one needs to walk to the beer stand in order to pass some time on. But I reckon things may have got rubbish this year so that people pay for the overpriced alcohol. Getting drunk is the most fun that can be had at Headingley this year and the only way that Gary can afford to build that new southstand. I certainly would have been Moses myself last Friday if I had the money.
But at least we won.
