And don't forget the Fly Kingfisher Fair Play Awards, where after the game, the umpires give points for various attributes to the teams to determine who played best/fairest.

I loved that they reported crowds of 2000ish to the games. Um, no. I've seen a crowd of 4200 at a Warriors game there, and some of the Counties crowds would have aspired to be half of that.

There are so many things just fundamentally wrong with that statement!

They're probably just counting how many days it's been since the majority of their fans have had a shower.

We have a new vacuum cleaner. It's fucking dangerous.

It get's statically charged really fast, everytime you touch the metal part of it you get a big fucking zap, and i was sure i got a shock through the plastic grip too.

Not to mention the carpet throughout the entire house is charged too. I stroked one of the cats this evening and touched his nose.....needless to say, he was VERY pissed off.

That explains the 200,000 crowd reported for the first game of the year.

It's called baiting you with ever-more-ridiculous statements.

Though seriously, I don't like the presence of cheerleaders in league. Or any sport. It cheapens it. It's like somebody sat around and said "we don't have enough 17 year old guys who can't form complete sentences coming to our games. How shall we attract them? Ooh, I know ..."

I'll count my blessings that the only thing wrong with my vacuum cleaner is that after about five minutes of it screaming away, you think the world's going to fucking end.

COUNTIES-MANUKAU = OWNED.

Incidentally, I hear a short branch railway is being built off the Southern line into central Manukau. Now, here in Melbourne, we have a train from Frankston to Stony Point nicknamed the Feral Flyer. I expect this nickname to very quickly cross the Tasman to be applied to the Manukau trains.

I was going to note the presence of rugby cheerleaders but i knew you HAD to be joking.

But yeah, i can understand cheerleading from a professional dancing standpoint, in that it's better to dance in front of people than an empty gym. The TV show about the Warriors cheerleaders last year affirmed that view.

There were cheerleaders when i first started going to the Warriors. Then they disappeared for a few years and they came back last year.

It actually does improve the pre-game experience. Instead of going through some silly competition and sitting and waiting for 10 minutes for the teams to come out there is constantly something happening.
