Q and A with James Bannerman

ONE of the most likeable larrikins in Dalby has tackled our Q and A this week.

James Bannerman takes the wheel to discuss his love of footy, old hair styles and drinking beer.

Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?

Jason Alexander. My life is a Seinfeld episode and I am George Costanza.

What do you think the greatest invention has been?

Beer - I am not sure how they make it so cheap and it helps me cope with the Raiders' poor form.

Do you have any lucky items, objects or traditions?

Not really, although I do have Raiders undies that often come out when the side plays.

Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?

The mullet or flat-top haircuts - not sure why they ever went "out of fashion”.

What three things do you think of most each day?

1. My wife and kids, they fill my life with love and happiness.

2. The Canberra Raiders - they fill my life with hope and deliver me pain and heartache.

3. Food and beer, they fill my belly.

What's been the best decision you've made in your life so far?

Following my girlfriend to Cairns. A few years later we married and now have two beautiful children.

If you could replace one body part with a super bionic replacement what bodypart and what features would the new bionic replacement have?

My spaghetti arms, hopefully the replacements would allow me to fly.

What was your first car? (or what would you like it to be?)

I never had a car until later in life and it was a second hand red Holden Cruze. A few cars and years later and we have another red Holden Cruze...

What do you consider is the most important appliance in a house?

The kettle, so I can have my morning cuppa.

What historical period would you like to live in if you could go back in time?

The Middle Ages, I would make a great king.
