RE: Most Famous people you have played sport with ( or had breakfast with), or are related to.
I see Matt Todd most mornings on the school run.
Chris Harris gratuitously took the piss out of me for about 90 straight minutes at a poker game once after I went large on the first hand.
Ben Blair scored the chick I took to my 7th form ball (that night), she's now married to another former All Black whose name would dox her and she's a lovely girl and doesn't deserve that.
My brother-in-law was the one who told Mark Hammett to quit soccer and take up rugby in 4th form.
Daryl Gibson was my peer support leader in 3rd form, on peer support day in the first week, him and Andrew Mehrtens took their big bunch of turds down to the river to eat Raro out of our hands and try to scone ducks with acorns. In 7th form, when we did the same, little did I know that a young Dan Carter was in the group, so I'm the direct link there.
I hung out and drove round with Shane Bond for a few days at Queenstown Winter Festival when he was still the fastest bowler in the world with a legal action.
Have dealt with cricket and rugby teams quite a few times working in hotels, there was the time Shoaib Aktar "wasn't right in the head" (- Pakistan team doctor) and used a vivid to sign his name hundreds of times on the wallpaper of his hotel room.
Helped Pedro de la Rosa get a rental car to go to Kaikoura, he wrote that Suzuki Ignis off in the Hundalees.
There'll be more...
RE: Highlanders v Crusaders
Yeah I'm firmly of the opinion that changing our way of life means the terrorists have won, but fuck surely 48 hours of shellshock (for want of a better term) needs to be taken into account, not least for the huge number of people for whom life has literally ground to a halt. There is no-one in this city who doesn't know someone personally devastated by loss.
I was disappointed initially, but on reflection this game was the very next day.
RE: Bledisloe #2
Yeeah obviously we had to wet a little bit of powder at some stage or whatever the analogy, which is a bit of a concern.
Players now "proven at this level":
And fuckin' go Kieran Read, MOM surely, those eye sockets had a whole new crazy bloody hunger tonight, looked like a leader except for when he didn't do enough to calm down Dane Coles.
Nice to see Beauden getting at least one of the hard kicks
A Smith v TJP about equal still for me
ALB was everywhere but could get more direct
Thoughts and Prayers to Mo'unga
Wallabies obviously shit the bed.
RE: Stormers v Crusaders
Today I was trying to explain the situation to some post-millennial staff of mine, and was told it was clearly an example of "Cancel Culture", an online/social media phenomenon where spurious manufactured outrage is used as a form of harassment in itself.
So I learned something new, which is nice.
RE: Crusaders v Chiefs (SF)
@Rocky-Rockbottom said in Crusaders v Chiefs (SF):
Bugger. The brave warrior Chiefs, finally felled by the jammy cantabs.
Great crowd. Looked to be well over 100 people there.
Just one man’s opinion but I thought Ian Smith did a GREAT job, in the absence of fellow fluffer TJ, at keeping Izzy Dagg’s bumhole thoroughly lubricated for the entire duration of the match with a phalange of deep ranging tongue action thrusts.
A mighty Wharepaku falls in the garden of Tane. I'm sure your awesome post will get lots of upvotes.
Can't explain the shit crowd, I was at a packed AMI when it was minus four for an Irish test and all it took was two smuggled hipflasks of Jamiesons for us to ignore it. Soft kids these days, just put on thermals and a merino and a puffer jacket and two pairs of socks and gloves and a wooly hat and eight little bottles of Two Tracks 14% Pinot Noir and you'll be fine. FYI it was eleven degrees and sunny at 2:35pm today.
Complaining about the commentators isn't talking about Sport, yes boy.

RE: Crusaders v Highlanders
I notice the ref defending brigade is out in force. He made some howlers, are we not allowed to say that anymore? This PC rugby culture ...
You're allowed to say what you like.
But you do you need to be ready for people to point out that you do often seem to invent "ref howlers" based on the team you support, or in this case the team you seem to hate with a pathetic bitter jealous rage that manifests itself in you going "WAAAAH IT'S NOT FAIR" whenever the Crusaders win.

Fuck Mehrts was good.
