    Interesting Experience last night coming home on QF188.

    Watched 1st ½ from F lounge before boarding. During flight announced on descent that they were in extra time.

    Came off plane in MEL and as us PAX were walking down the corridor to immigration there were loud shouts emanating from some unseen source.

    Next thing, just before the 'last-chance' duty free, about 10 customs staff bounced out of a side room on the right; grins all over their face. They were virtually doing cartwheels and pirouettes. happy advice was provide that Oz had won a penalty shootout and had qualified for the WorldCup Finals.

    They almost raced us down to the immigration counters.

    It was a bit surreal; instead of the reserved, almost somber faces that you normally get in customs, there were smiles and beaming faces all around; was almost a party atmosphere.
    :lol:

    As a certain Simpsons character would say Excellent, Excellent. I was in Japan during the last World Cup and it was phenomenal, eventhough I'm not a huge soccer fan. The atmosphere was electric 8) .

    Australia's win last night was all over the news here last night and this morning. I think the Japanese are already starting to worry about Australia's move from Oceania to Asia next time... Go the Roos :!:

    I don't normally watch soccer matches (unless they involve the Mini NMs). However, I have played soccer for the last 30 years. I just hung up my boots at the end of last year as my old body is not going to recover as quickly from injury anymore. But I did end up being asked to ref an under 12's game this year :? , and running a line holding a flag was a common occurance this last winter.

    But now that Australia has made it to the World Cup, I guess I will be watching at least a few games during the competition. But its unlikely to convince me to take my aging limbs out of retirement 8) .

    Hey man - share the love!!

    Not a fan myself but I enjoy the spectacle of big events and shared experiences. Remember the Olympics in Sydney? With the World Cup on big screens all over it will be a buzz.

    Well done Footballeroos. (they should really get a new name if they won't call it soccer any more)

    I had my fun stirring and ate humble pie as well.

    I do not worship sporting events or sporting people (ok except for Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman). Do not support any olympics, not just Sydney, as I am not really that interested in watching teenage kids competing, and where adults compete the majority are full of drug cheats. That is my opinion, I know I am in the minority as the majority of people get captivated by these type of events.

    I was playing social darts wednesday night and only managed to watch the penalty shoot out after darts finished and I was waiting to be served my next drink. That is me I am different and so were the other people playing social darts that night. If that irks people then I am sorry. We all have our own interests.

    But by the same token I wish them and every other team that has qualified for the world cup all the best and let the best team win.
