We are the Champions of the World

A fine night of Karoake was had by the punters at the Robbo Pub on Friday evening. Please do not think this is a classy event. It isn't!

The usual suspects sang the usual selection of songs. "Girls just wanna have fun" (Cindy Lauper) was a big favourite, both with the girls on the dance floor, and the boys cheering from the bar. "Bone" raised the bar considerably, with a fine rendition of Bob Dylan's "Rolling Stone". BJ sang Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog".
(See photo of Bone & BJ from another occasion).
Martin, Angie and Nic (visitors from Germany, Darwin and Perth respectively) gave a fine rendition of an AC-DC number.

Quote of the night, however, goes to the Robertson Soccer Club boys who had been celebrating their Christmas party. They got to sing the last song, and chose Queen's "We are the Champions". In the midst of enthusiastic choruses of "We are the champions, We are the champions, We are the champions.... of the world" we heard the cry go up" World Cup: here we come".

After tonight's training session by the Robertson Soccer Club, at the Robbo Pub (the Robertson Inn), the Brazilians, the Italians, and the Germans must be quaking in their boots.
