About Legend
A legend is a genre of folklore that consists of a narrative featuring human actions perceived or believed both by teller and listeners to have taken place within human history. Narratives in this genre may demonstrate human values, and possess certain qualities that give the tale verisimilitude. Legend, for its active and passive participants, includes no happenings that are outside the realm of “possibility,” but may include miracles. Legends may be transformed over time, in order to keep them fresh, vital, and realistic. Many legends operate within the realm of uncertainty, never being entirely believed by the participants, but also never being resolutely doubted.The Brothers Grimm defined legend as “folktale historically grounded”. A modern folklorist’s professional definition of legend was proposed by Timothy R. Tangherlini in 1990:
Legend, typically, is a short (mono-) episodic, traditional, highly ecotypified historicized narrative performed in a conversational mode, reflecting on a psychological level a symbolic representation of folk belief and collective experiences and serving as a reaffirmation of commonly held values of the group to whose tradition it belongs.

About roasts
Roasting is a cooking method that uses dry heat where hot air covers the food, cooking it evenly on all sides with temperatures of at least 150 °C (300 °F) from an open flame, oven, or other heat source. Roasting can enhance the flavor through caramelization and Maillard browning on the surface of the food. Roasting uses indirect, diffused heat (as in an oven), and is suitable for slower cooking of meat in a larger, whole piece.Meats and most root and bulb vegetables can be roasted. Any piece of meat, especially red meat, that has been cooked in this fashion is called a roast. Meats and vegetables prepared in this way are described as “roasted”, e.g., roasted chicken or roasted squash.

Cowboys Test star and captain Michael Morgan is finally clear to make his NRL return.

Morgan has missed the past 10 games due to shoulder surgery. He has also been sweating on the looming birth of his first child, a baby girl.

His wife, Brianna, gave birth to Penelope Quinn Morgan on Friday, so dad is free to face Gold Coast in Sunday’s early round 13 match.

“He’s a really good player – I’m tipping the Cowboys still,” NSW coach Brad Fittler said on The Sunday Footy Show.

“He’s been out for a long time and obviously his partner’s just had a baby. He’s a quality player and a quality bloke, and they need him.

“There’s a lot going on at he Cowboys at the moment. There’s going to be a lot of recruiting going on, so when players pick their clubs where they want to go, they look at who’s there, their leaders and captains, ans Michael Morgan’s a great player and fella.”

The Cowboys are still deciding on who will replace coach Paul Green, with Josh Hannay the current caretaker.

The 2015 premiers are battling through a tough season, currently sitting 13th; just above the Titans in 14th.
