Some Questions

Did we choke or did we choke?

Is it Sir Graham and Sir Ritchie come New Year?

Why didn't the PM arrange to have them dubbed by the Guv as part of the closing ceremony?

Why was the Bilious Bitch allowed into the country at this time?

Had the French got up to win during those last minutes, would she have been dead by midnight?

Why do we hear no complaints from Labour about all those profits going overseas to the IRB?

Have the original 57 'Old Farts' all died yet?

Who are the "57" of which you speak?

Well I might be wrong but I seem to recall from a long time ago an English player (was it Will Cowling?) who described thus the members of the IRB. I'll try to look it up.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Yes, here it is from Wiki. I was right apart from a spelling error.

"Carling famously described the Rugby Football Union Committee as "57 old farts" which led to his sacking as captain. "

He was strongly rumoured to have done a bit of rucking practice at Windsor Castle.

And anon 4.23 I think it should be 'of whom you speak.' 'of which' refers to objects, not people.

I'm not sure about this knight hood lark.

David Kirk hasn't received one and he has done a lot more since he won the cup in '87

I'm not too sure about a knight hood either. It is something you pop over the head of a Pommy upper class twit before you pull the lever on the gallows.

Now a knihthood is an entirely different thing.

Considering the pressure Uncle Helen is under, according to UNDPWatch, it was perhaps inopportune for her to come to NZ for a few days.
There again, we are told H2 is running the show.

You lose all of your proofreading know-it-all points when you misspell your correction Adolf. And you lose credibility when you spin something as universal as the World Cup victory - something all of us Kiwis can celebrate - into a nasty political attack. Shame on you.

...the Bilious Bitch...

Particularly funny given the Veteran's post below about the hate Labour supporters direct at National MPs...

Another question:
Why did John Key try and butt in on the handshake at the Cup presentation?

We choked. We just got away with it this time. A different, less amenable referee and it would have been another four more long years.

Blair said...

Any "choke" where we finish with more points than the other team is one I will happily take without any sense of embarrassment!

A dissappointing win

Win not good enough for any knighthood.
