While the match itself may have been more similar to Sat.’s Scotland/Italy match than the free-flowing France/Wales match, it was still full of tension and drama.

Maybe if Italy had taken those few chances at the start it would have made a difference, but once the ball was moved to the backs everything just

Went to see The Woodsman starring Kevin Bacon last week. Was a very interesting film, but not one I’m gonna review, as such, for the simple reason that the subject matter is such that it dwarfs the actual film. For those of you who don’t know, the film tells Walter’s story after he is released on parole after serving time

“described as a “psychonanalytic procedure in which
a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or
her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever
comes into the mind without monitoring its content.”
Over time, this technique is supposed to help

There’s been a lot of talk here about Rule 42 and whether or not the GAA should let rugby and soccer be played in Croke Park. And of course a lot of the debate centres around the fact that the govt. gave all this money to the GAA in order to help build the stadium. This is true, but it

Looks like Google really is out to take over the world. First by search engine, then by email, then getting into the blogging business, and recently there have been plenty of rumours about a google browser. “In April of 2004 they purchased the domain gbrowser.com (notice the similarity to gmail.com) and recently they lured two of the lead developers on
