    What? What? Speak up to me young man!
    MRR or Rabid

    Some people believe supporting the Roosters
    is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed
    with that attitude. I can assure you it is
    much, much more important than that.

              The late English cricket umpire David Shepherd would either stand on one leg or jump up and down so one foot was always off the ground when scores reached 111 / 222 / 333 / 444 - 111 is supposedly unlucky based on it looking like 3 stumps without bails or Lord Nelson - one eye one arm and one leg- problem with the Lord Nelson one though he never lost a leg - lost sight in one eye and one arm in battle but never a leg

                  Why else would they call it a Nelson? 1 ball?

                    There's actually a full and half Nelson too - wrestling holds - some say Admiral Lord Nelson reportedly said One King One Country One Destiny so maybe over time it was changed - but he didn't lose a leg though

                    Where for King/Queen and Country supposedly came from ?

                    I remember in that movie Goodbye Mr Chips the "One arm, one eye, one destiny" line was used in reference to Admiral Lord Nelson as well

                    111 does look like stumps without bails though

                    It's like the story why rum is sometimes called Nelson's blood - Following his victory at the Battle of Trafalgar, Nelson's body was placed(stuffed in reality) in a cask(barrel) and preserved in, brandy, rum and other spirits to allow transport back to England (6 weeks or so ). - Pickled you might say

                    Allegedly some of the ships crew drilled holes in the cask/barrel and the liquid was drained and drunk by the ships crew. Whether that's true who knows. English/British sailors up until the 1970's use to have Tot of rum at lunch time each day.

                    It's a bit like Robin Hood et al and or King Arthur and the Round Table lot et al- did they exist or where they a combination of different people or just English Folklore to rally the home defence during troubled times and invasions etc.
