Well, New Zealand's turned the initiative in this game well and truly now. Australia's on the fucking ropes and damn lucky they didn't just concede a try.

You know you want to go for the men in black anyway.

And haha, how many medals is the Isle of Man even likely to win anyway?
It's got the seeds of it, anyway. And I'll have you know that our Irish players are in fact rad at Gaelic football as well as AFL, but just all round think that AFL is more awesome. This is a fact that I read somewhere.

Well, since the All Blacks are the only Union side I was ever exposed to regularly as a kid because of Footrot Flats, it'd make sense. Plus I like success.

I doubt that IOM would be a separate team, really if a team at all they'd just be part of the UK, even though there's some uncertainty with that, exactly. It's mainly known for it's motorbike riding, anyway.

Wait. Motorbikes? That may mean Larry lives there. That almost cancels out the awesomeness that Clarkson lives there. I may have to rethink my homecoming!

WOOHOO! With a minute left in the half, Andrew Hore (playing at hooker! Hore the hooker!) scores a great try and shows up the Aussie defence.

Amazingly, I found it pretty quickly. And, wow...

No fear, Linkin Park and System of a Down were my favourite bands when I was 13. It took me a long time to admit that every song on Hybrid Theory was identical. At least I noticed things were starting to suck when they released Meteora.

Now that I've said that, can I have a PM, too? How did you get one of those damn things so easy? You all want an Inthistowntastic sig, don't you?!

Knew you'd say that.
Ahh, right, so you'd barrack for Port against the Crows? I just remembered that you like neither one of the SA teams, that's it.

Ah, now I was never into System Of A Down. Though they did give the world Chop Suey. I don't mean that in the sense of "it's a good song". I mean that in the sense of "Avril Lavigne's live cover of Chop Suey is so hysterically funny, and quite possibly the worst cover in the history of the world".

And you should take that up with Reggo or someone, since I certainly want an Inthistowntastic sig.

Fact you read somewhere? Like on the preview screen before you made your post?

Who doesn't want to go for the most successful team ever in any major sport! Not that I would encourage fairweather fans ... but the All Blacks are the closest thing most atheist Kiwis are likely to have to gods ...

I thought the Isle of Man got its own team? Or is that just at the Commonwealth Games? And woah, Clarkson lives there? I had no idea.

I like neither of them, and sometimes I may like one more than the others, but generally Port supporters aren't as lame as the Crows, plus Port has a good SANFL history while the Crows are just a soulless modern creation (please don't mention that West Coast was only established in 1986, at least that was the year of being Inthistowntastic, rather than whatever crappy later year the Crows were founded).

You know, this is weird but I don't think I ever listened to it. Yes, I've known of its existence for ages, but maybe I was just too scared to bother? Not sure. I was pretty hep to the jive around 2002 when it came to rubbish new music, so I don't think I was entirely anti-Avril. Just lukewarm. I had more important things to worry about, like TEENAGE ANGST.

Exactly how is the deal done? Is it free?

No, it was... it was in something else. Definitely not the preview screen. I don't know where you get such ideas!

Haha, I've noticed. And well, you said that the Kiwi dollar went down after the Blacks lost, this one time. That's pretty much evidence. All you've got is the All Blacks and Russell Crowe. And Lord of the Rings landscapes.

I haven't paid attention to the Commonwealth Games ever (history doesn't date since 776 BC, etc.) but you may be right. And yes, if I'm not mistaken Clarkson either lives in Isle of Man or has a Manx wife, or both. It's probably the most polluted country in the world.

TRY TIME TO THE MOTHERFUCKING ALL BLACKS!

I LOVE YOU, DANIEL CARTER. WHAT A BREAK.

And Danny converts the try he set up and it's 19-17 to the gods in black.

I love how Collingwood likes to cause shit about Port's history as Magpies. It's so childish. And how come you go for West Coast anyway, if they're such a modern, soulless inthistowntastic creation?

You've GOT to listen to it. It's just so ... hideously awful in a hilarious way. I cannot think of a worse cover.

Suuure, I believe you.

Hey now, you guys have claimed Russell Crowe as your own and we're quite happy to let you have him! We've got Tim and Neil Finn.

Ahh, yeah, I know I've seen the Isle of Man at either the Commonwealth Games or the Olympics. And if Clarkson lives there, it'd be safe to say that half of its trees must be dead or dying ...

Shit, and the Wallabies manage to go against the flow of play and try to regain some of the initiative and it works. Try to regain the lead, converted, now 24-19.

Typical Pies. Can't say I'm too fond of them, either.

You answered your own question - I go for them because they're Inthistowntastic. Or because my sister went for them, one or the other.

Yeah, I'll have to check it out. But right now, I have a foot halfway to Hell and think I should settle down with a cup of tea, some orange juice and a painkiller overdose. Enjoy the rugby, have a good night!

Plus it has a WAY better solo than Vertigo/Native Son.

And honestly, Native Son is so vague that I really don't think anybody would know it's about Native Americans if Bono hadn't said anything.
It's been a while since I listened to it, but you're probably right.

Yes, it's based on the case of ... some guy whose name I've forgotten.
Nice one.

I must end this the only way I know how.



Tugger's whistle's blowin'
Means we must be goin'
No more Russell Crowein' for you.

But now don't you start to whine
I'll see ya again next time
Cause there's plenty a-more a-fightin' left to do.
Makin' movies, makin' songs
An' fightin' round the world!

Oh, I am FUMING that was not called as a penalty try. Kiwis should be back in the lead. Ugh, fucking refs.
