NBA and NRL tragic

I must be cursed when it comes to St George second rowers. 15 years later in 09 I’m @ Brisbane airport flying down to Sydney for work. It’s the Sunday morning after the Dragons beat the Broncs on the Friday night. Dragons are standing around in good spirits and I happen to spot my fave player from that squad, Jeremy Smith. He caught my eye and just deadpanned stared @ me. I quickly looked down but noticed he was making his way over. He slowed down as he passed me as if to say stop staring. I was tempted to tap him on the shoulder and say “mate, I’m a Dragons fan” but I wussed out. The only positive experience was with the late and great Lance Thompson (RIP). He grew up near me and my neighbor was scared to death of him. I saw him one night @ Carmen’s and he was friendly enough so maybe 1 out of 3 ain’t bad.

The night I crossed paths with the Raging Bull

Pip almost got it done for the Blazers against the Lakers but blew that huge lead in game 7 so badly. Closest he got to returning to the big dance

What happened to the Bulls after The Last Dance?

Good call!

My favourite NBA 'against all odds' teams

It was. Cleveland were the underdogs after game 1 and did a fantastic job to take it to 6.

Fair point. I meant more that they finished 6th to the Storms 3rd. They smoked them in week 1 of the finals but then choked in the 2nd half of the GF. 2nd time I cried over a GF, the first was the 89 Tigers

My favourite rugby league underdogs of all time

That’s a fair point, I was probably meaning more that they finished 6th to the Storms 3rd on the Ladder. They smoked the Storm in the first week of the Finals but then choked in the GF. 2nd time I’ve cried over a GF result, first was the Tigers in 89
