Hot Fuzz dir. by

Last night we had our first Wii related accident. The flatmate and her boyfriend bought a Wii a week ago or so. It has been over at his new place for most of the time, but came back on Friday. Course...

Gutted

Gutted! Revisited. There is no denying that Croke Park is an impressive venue. I haven’t been there all that often. I don’t remember who was playing for my first visit, but I do remember being asked if anyone had asked us...

Jaysus!

Talk about a blood injury I’d say he had to change his jersey and all before he came back on. And now for something somewhat different: A Chara, – How ironic that in the week when we finally have had to...
