sufficient for a specific requirement

So weekend one of this year’s Six Nations is over and done with, verdicts all in? For the most part I think that the winning teams don’t have too much to write home about. We didn’t put in a huge performance, but we won, so it’ll do. And to be fair, we never seem to pile on the points against Italy. So all those “doom and gloom” commentators can hang on til next weekend. Then they turn those frowns upside down as we beat France.

Springtime in paris

I know you are all trés excited about this weekend. And any number of future weekends. Yes, that’s right by fellow rugby fans, the Six Nations is almost here. And already the meeja is hyped beyond belief. Will we win the Grand Slam for the second year in a row.

Never since the battle of the Somme has so much effort been wasted in losing so many yards

I was at Croke Park today. As a witness you’d think I’d therefore have some clue what was going on, but, omg, wtf was that? The first half was okay. We made some chances and really should have been further ahead. But the second half was just plain poor. The lineout was atrocious. How is […]

Just hush!

So, instead of rugby this blog will know turn its attention to… cricket! Nah, not really, though I have watched some of our winning ways. Who knew that failed[1] furrin[2] crickteers could play so well? Or, if I’m being honest, who really cared. Still, now that they are out there winning, and fans are singing […]

Judging you, judging me

Yesterday at work Bhí cúpla caíllíní ag suigh in front of the desk. Psychology students. And as they were studying they were chatting[1] and got on to discussing suicide.[2] 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 […]
