Until handbags becomes a legal defence in assault cases, let’s hear no more of them.

So, sport is fun isn’t it? It is the taking part that matters, right?

Or maybe not.
The game on Sunday between Ireland and Australia was a disgrace. Fights dominated the first quarter, even before the game started there were brawls on the field.
I couldn’t tell who started what, but it doesn’t really matter does it? The fact is that the officials were never in charge, and never really tried to take control, happy to issue yellow cards when what was called for were reds.

I’ve never been anti the International Rules series, but I’m starting to agree with Mickey Harte that it is a sham and a waste of money, time and resources. There are plenty of international GAA teams out there. Why doesn’t the GAA fund an international match between Ireland and the US if they are looking for an international aspect to the game?

The fact of the matter is that the tackle is something that the Irish players have never gotten used to, taking or giving, instead relying on speed to get them out of trouble. But when you have full-time professionals going up against amateurs there can really only be one winner.

The Aussies did outplay the Irish in terms of skill as well, but no one will remember that, all we’ll remember is the tackles and the fights.

As for the Shinty match, well, we lost that too. But at least there weren’t any fights there, and congrats to Scotland for the win. Sunday was not a good day for Irish sports, cause Munster also lost in the Magners League..

Still, the women won their International series. Although at one stage in the second test they had too many players on the pitch, which meant they were stripped of all 42 points they’d scored until then. They still won, Ireland 3.5.6 (39) – Australia 0.4.6 (18)

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[1] 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 […]

Capitalism is Man Exploiting Man; Communism is just the opposite

There is nothing better in life than being woken in the middle of the night/morning to some fella shouting about “how easy it is” “In my country” “Queer” “Call the guards” and other random proclamations of drunkenness. I’m not quite sure what prompted the screamed declarations of gayness, and I don’t really care. So fair […]

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege

I’m guessing most people out there are familiar with muppets. Those puppet type things, well they aren’t what I’m taking about when I say muppet[1] Oh no! when I say muppet I mean “you feckin’ fool you”. So from now on, instead of saying “you fool” say “ya muppit” [2] and you too can sound […]

Repetition is the reality and the seriousness of life.

Yesterday was Serenity Day, as previews opened. Hence the non-posting, because I didn’t want to bore you all with my, “OMG! Serenity Now!”. But here I am posting about it again, and there is nothing you can do to stop me. Mwha Ha Ha, and other such noises. It was Screen One again, but hopefully […]
