well kudos to the kiwi's - that was a fantastic game - those last two quarters and extra time were just brilliant!

congratulations!

Holy shit, we won another gold medal. I didn't know we were allowed any.

And that's about it. Phew. Thankfully we're back to normal programming.

Given the quality of programming on Channel 10, I'm not sure that's a good thing.

Well, that was a weak Commonwealth Games for New Zealand. We finished 11th on the medal table, which is our equal lowest ever (we also came 11th in 1970, with just 2 gold medals to our name). However, we did win 36 medals total, which is better than 31 last time - but a bit poor compared to 45 medals (11 gold) in 2002.

Funnily enough, Australia's haul of just 177 medals is less than the last three Games, at which they cracked 200 every time. Their 74 golds is less than the last four Games, at which they got over 80 each time. But if this is "not as dominant as usual" ... well, sweet jesus, no wonder so many people reckon the Games are a waste of time.

Yeah, but you lost to them years before we did.

Better that than being bored by the Games.

Tim Lane: "The Simpsons, it's a great show. But the might and the power and the strength of the Australian Neighbours is just truly inspirational. And that spirit has triumphed over the ability of The Simpsons."

Luke Darcy: "Yeah, well said Tim."

Liz Ellis: "How shit is The Simpsons, really!"
