Even sober I feel like I'm spelling it wrong!

Three glasses of wine down, don't even feel tipsy.

Danny nails a penalty and it's 21-10 to New Zealand.

God, Australia were lucky just then. New Zealand had a sure try on, but fumbled and half time was called. 21-10 to the All Blacks with half the game to go. And we're just laying waste to the Wallabies; thumping tackles and shit.

And I'm onto my fourth glass now.

Is it true that they put tape around their ears in rugby to prevent guys from ripping them off?

Bad has had over fifty songs snippeted in it. Absolute insanity, and only sure to keep rising.

Yeah, if you're stuck at the bottom of a maul, you better watch out for shoe studs! Some short-haired/bald forwards wear this thin head cover so that studs don't rip nasty gashes in their scalp.

I didn't realize U2 played Calgary during the Elevation tour.

Youtube shows on concert results.. and then a bunch of stuff on trains!
YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

Axver, I see you've been busy at youtube

Proof that some witty ABC guy was right in naming the game "thugby".

Of course, he also called AFL "footbrawl", which was pretty accurate too.
