Yet another pre-air show has escaped onto the wilds of d’internet. Isn’t modern technology a wonderful thing? Right, on with the recap. We open with Sam on his birthday. He is 21 today, but his parents seem a little off, odd would be a good term His brother Kyle is more normal in his response, the usual brother banter goes on. Sam, at first distracted by a news story about an arsonist on the news, retaliates by asking, ever so innocently about a letter from Stanford. It turns out that Kyle had applied, and didn’t get in. His parents are a little upset at this, something that Kyle can’t quite understand and protests that Sam never went to college. His mother however disagrees, Sam did go to college, for a whole month, it just made him sleepy so he came home. They are both very proud of him.
Yeah, so I’m a day early, but I won’t be here tomorrow. So instead we are going to pretend that tomorrow is today. Which of course means only one thing. Rugby! Oh and some parades and stuff. There are construction workers all over the shop, hard at work putting up the fun fair. And the […]
Yesterday at work Bhí cúpla caíllíní ag suigh in front of the desk. Psychology students. And as they were studying they were chatting and got on to discussing suicide. Now I’ve always felt that suicide is something of a selfish act, because lets face it, it is the people left behind who have to deal […]
Well now, what to say about Saturday’s rugby? Do I use the old “a win is a win” cliché? Or the fact that Ireland won despite not really playing well is a sign of a good team? Or do I moan that they didn’t prepare and never looked like the team that played against England? […]
My only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey! What a match. What a result. Role on Scotland and Italy. Super Saturday or what? The fun started before I went to bed on Friday when B#5 texted me to say he’d gotten his hands on a ticket for the big match. Bad news […]
Hopefully BOD and Stringer will be back in two weeks for our match against England. Which we really really really have to win. But, horror or horrors, O’Gara has picked up an ankle injury. Eddie expects him to be fit for the next match, but you never know, and all credit to Paddy Wallace, but […]
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 to carry anything into the stadium. It must have been a Sligo game as […]
Well, obviously enough, with the weekend just gone my first topic of this post has to be… the role of the Catholic Church in the political life of Ireland.
Or maybe not.
Dear personages looking for images of Ronan O’Gara drunk please go here, or here, Blogarrah is the site to visit. Personally, if the man wants to go out and get drunk then I don’t really care. Although his wife may wonder just where that hand was going Course ROG also did a strip on Sunday […]
Go on my son! Although I’m a little worried about Argentina maybe one of the Leinster boys can take out Contempomi in a “training accident” a little closer to the World Cup? Anyways, moving away from sport at the moment, I’ve discovered that I have too many books I want to read. I’ve taken a […]
The only laying down they did was as a prelude to rolling over and succumbing to the Ospreys’ second string.
Mwaaahaha I’m sorry to any, and all, Aussies, but dude, pwnage Also kinda proves ROG right when he said that the Magners/Celtic league is just as good as the English Premiership. Although yes, the Wallabies did put out a second string outfit, but you know what, so did the Ospreys. It’ll be interesting to see […]
I’d’ve started this post with a Dude-like exclamation, only I did that last time, and I can’t be repeating myself. Not for a short while anyway.
I guess Ronan O’Gara was proven totally and utterly correct when he said that Irish teams no longer have to fear English ones. After all, all three of our provinces involved in the Heinekin Cup won their matches, and England only 1 out 6. The French got 4 our of 7. While the Welsh got 3 our of 3. Scotland played 2 and won one
Course on account of the ebilness of capitalism I didn’t get to watch any. I had intended to go down the pub on Sunday to watch Munster. But laziness defeated me. I listened to the Leinster match, and have the highlights recorded. And watched the highlights of the Munster match. Anyone know why RTE don’t just show the entire match?
All hail Ronan, that was a fantastic last penalty. After missing one from closer in earlier, and faced with that rain, and all that pressure. What can you say but “Dude”
