You deserve some relaxation on this fine Sunday afternoon. Wales just beat Samoa 17-10 and England will take on Georgia in Otago Stadium in half an hour. The Weekend Press featured this cartoon on the escapades of England rugby player Mike Tindall. CCTV footage was released of Tindall, married to the Queen’s granddaughter, getting close with a blond. No fuss. The blond is an old friend and the bouncer who released the film has been charged. Just have a look at the video and narration by security guard Jonathan Dixon, HERE.
The festivities have ended. New York, America and the world return to their daily lives again. The Eagles lost their first game against Ireland in the Rugby World Cup. News channels around the world orgasmed repeatedly over memorial services with Obama speeching behind bullet proof glass, dramatic documentaries, sad picture collages, burning American flags in Londonistan and all the new 9/11 conspiracy theories. How could a Saudi family have contact with the terrorist mastermind Mohammed Atta and then disappear two weeks before the attacks? The Miami Herald investigated. What about the revelation ten years after the fact that an amateur artist predicted the attacks 13 years before it happened. That is what Willie Gardner’s daughter wants us to believe. Will we ever know the truth and inside outs of the whole story? But who cares. Undoubtedly we will remember this day ten years from now, but who is to say it will not have been overshadowed by a new horrible incident. Then we will look back at this day just like we do Pearl Harbour, in history books.
Soccer is for pussies. Tennis is for Russian girls. And cricket belongs on the Asian continent. No real men play rugby. And if they can’t make in the black jersey they watch this manly sport. You understand we are not talking about the kiddy sport American football what those wussies play over in the States. The World Cup is going off tonight and will last for almost 2 months. That’s not because there are so many countries but because half of the teams need medical attention and doctors rest after every game. The All Blacks kick off at 8.30pm against Tonga in the opening match on their way to dethrone the Springboks. The English fans are on their way to Dunedin to try and rid the town of that nasty liquid called alcohol. But unlike with the football it hardly turns into trouble. Their opening is against Argentina at Otago Stadium. Furniture might be banned from the World Cup stadiums, but grab a scrumpy and make yourself comfortable on the couch. Kick the wife next door to play with the neighbourhood kids. The opening game is live on Sky and on TVOne, MaoriTV and Te Reo. Go All Blacks!
Update: A powerful New Zealand kicked off Rugby World Cup 2011 by smashing Pool A opponents Tonga, 41-10.

Abstinence during the Rugby World Cup was an absurd idea from Telecom. Maybe they should have a look at how the Spanish football club Getafe tries to fill their empty Coliseum Alfonso Perez. It seems the purple shorts from Getafe understand the concept of Guerrilla Marketing perfectly. After an ad with a suicidal koala, they have now come up with a winner. Donate your sperm. The more the better. We are not sure how this will fill a stadium, but we see this as a perfect way of showing our boys in black that we support them. So get your Rebel Sport All Blacks jersey, head over to the nearest spermbank, and shoot that white load for the Web Ellis Cup. Check the Getafe promotional ad HERE.
