Overheard at the rugby

Cape Town’s Stormers take on the Crusaders from New Zealand.

We will win this game.

We’re the South African team – we invented humanity, for f***s sake – we’re the Cradle of Humankind.
We were the first nation to f*****g invent nuclear missiles and then give it all up.

We can’t lose this game.

Final score: Stormers 0-22 Crusaders

Moral of the story: Success doesn’t automatically follow big achievements.
(Oh, and you should have kept those missiles).

  • As a Sharks fan from an all Stormers family, I relished this result… and the fact that they found themselves at the bottom of the rankings!

  • yeah. I cried too.

  • You have no idea how much I laughed. I mean really. As someone who is completely apathetic to almost all sport, it was really funny to see the look on my dad’s face.

    Ahh, I see BA and BAA do it again with the ‘grand’ opening of T5. A complete shambles and Mr Walsh nowhere to be seen! What about a bit of unbiased reporting on this with an apology to the bloke from oxford ? You are better off there – the UK is turning into a joke with companies like BA and BAA a complete joke.

  • Hi Vicci and thanks for your comment.

    It does indeed seem that the T5 opening has hit a few hitches. However, I’m failing to see the connection between this and Mark Tamburro being the only bloke out of 136 passengers who moaned after the BA038 incident.
    I’m also failing to see why you think I should apologise for calling him a whinger, when by his own admission in the now infamous comment 106 (http://6000.co.za/2008/01/20/constant-whining-sound-from-crashed-plane/#comment-106) he is a whinger.
    But thanks for your comment – and you’re right – I am better off here. But then of course, you have no idea how bad the SA aviation industry is…

    Just beautiful ! The aforementioned missiles were actually the tungsten darts of the Western Province side – scary from 7’6″ , totally useless in the snooker room !
