why i love state of origin

This right here is why I cannot resist State of Origin...

79th minute, 1994, Game One. Queensland are down 12-10 and coming off their tryline. There's no hope of a comeback. My dad had given up and gone to bed.

Then the impossible happens:

25 seconds later and I'm cheering so much dad comes back out to see what's going on.

Since then I don't think I've ever stopped watching before the final siren :)

Another choice moment: That Tackle by Gordon Tallis. It's all so over the top, it's just fantastic.
