As I down some cabernet merlot, we leave the Rum Jungle and head to a delightfully named part of Lake Havasu City in Arizona - Broomrape Lane. We probably don't want to know what happened to lead to this most unfortunate name. The street, as it turns out, is a dead end, so things must have concluded nastily.

Pictorial proof of its existence:

Worryingly, I made this thread halfway through my sixth glass of cabernet merlot.

And GO THE MOTHERFUCKING ALL BLACKS! 31-10!

Channel 7's commentators are idiots. The New Zealand Herald is an Auckland paper.

34-10 now, thanks to another fantastic penalty from Daniel Carter.

God, Australia. You suck.

Slayer's big album is Reign in Blood, right?

Axvers big album would be Cane in Blood!



I need to start a metal band now.

Early Bono is so classic.

I love some October-era boots where he attempts to give a political speech before Rejoice and fails abysmally. "These buildings are being torn down in Dublin, but ... I say REJOICE!" And Edge mercifully starts playing and Bono shuts up.

Damn, I miss Justin Marshall at halfback, though Jimmy Cowan's playing a great game. But Marshall fucking ruled. I trusted him not to fuck up.
