GoodBye















In January of 2014, this blog will be six years old.

I have been blogging for six years, and the time has
come to stop this blog.

I started this blog for several reasons. I saw Hypocrisy
in the New Zealand sports media, I saw Hypocrisy by
several prominent kiwi politicians and kiwis involved in
the political scene.

I also kept reading factually incorrect statements by
 certain bloggers on the subject of music/sport, so
I thought perhaps I can get my two cents out there.

Well after six years, not a lot of people wanted my
two cents, at it's peak this blog may of gotten 100-
150 hits a day.  Most times it  averaged around 40-
50 hits a day.

Anyway for those that came, thanks for reading.
If your a kiwi I hope you finally got to read
something about the sports of Basketball and
American Football that you didn't know, and I
hope you enjoyed reading that perhaps the stats
our media gives you about a certain sport, aren't exactly
true.

If your an American reader or outside of the USA, I
hope you like the reviews of Modern Family and such,
and I hope you enjoying reading a blog from outside the
States, that didn't knock the States.

If your a Garth Brooks fan, I hope you enjoyed the
posts about Garth Brooks, and man oh man, it's
2014 in three weeks, it was a long wait, but he's back!!

To the NZ Feminist community,  I hope you enjoyed
the mansplaining or whatever its called, and I hope you took
something from the blog.

To Brendan Telfer, you still haven't answered my question
after six years, and I still think its a crime, what you do to
Journalism.

 For me, the  battle in New Zealand is lost,
we still have a media who has brainwashed the public,
not only by the popularity of our country's national sport,
but even in the year  2013, they still have to bag other sports.

We have so so many great sports people,
who will not get any recognition because of their sports,
we have many Kiwi Girls playing Basketball in the USA
at High School Level and College Level, who with publicity and
funding could achieve at the highest level.

We have a ton of Female Footballers doing the same.

But because of the incestuous relationships that
NZ Sporting Journalists  have with out three big
codes, our female Basketballers and  Footballers,
will never get the opportunity to shine
on the world stage, no publicity means little or no  funding
(Womans Basketball gets nothing) and that is a disgrace, and that is Brendan Telfer's
legacy to the world of sport.

To the extreme NZ Politicians, not everything is the fault
of the USA.

To New Zealanders, not everything has to be about Rugby.

(Update: 2017: When you see Blogger such as Emily Writes
becoming successful, it blows my mind, if the media saw
her previous blog, they may not be so kind in their words
to ger)

But anyway, have to end on a positive.

If ya a fan of the Arizona Cardinals, The NZ Warriors, The
Kiwis, The Tall Blacks, If you love politicians that are centered
and not ideologists, if your Female and you want to play
Basketball or Football, if you Love Garth Brooks and
country music and proud of it. If your a fan of Brenna
Stewart  If your a fan of Ricky Gervais, Gordon Ramsay,
Calvin and Hobbes, The Office (both versions) If you love
 Obama, If you love MASH and SEINFELD and
 think BREAKING BAD is the greatest Drama ever,
if you love the USA, if you love Kiwis and New Zealand
 Beaches, if you love the NZ Breakers, if you love
 Froyo's, Dave and Busters, Friendlys, if you love
Vegas, UCONN, Nelson and CHCH (stay Strong)....
if you love HOVERBOARDS (IT WILL SOON BE 2015)

If you love all this, give yourself a pat on the back and don't
EVER feel the need to explain why you like these things, just
enjoy them, enjoy your passions, and most of important have
fun!!

Because that is what its all about.

Goodbye.

Anonymous Comments



















You would think that I welcome comments
to this blog, which will be six years old
in 2014, I mean I don't get a lot of comments,
a handful here and there.

But the one thing that irks me, is people who
have to comment under "Anonymous"

I find it's always people who write the negative
comments who do this, I have no idea, why they
would choose to comment like this.

I have known of bloggers themselves for various
reasons who have blogged, "Anonymous" it would appear
these bloggers are somewhat Narcissist, they believe
they are superior and no one should be allowed to
know their name, despite calling up other people
on their blogs, and giving out their life story on twitter.

But to go to a blog and post in the comment
section under  "Anonymous" comes across
as trolling and somewhat cowardice.

So if you choose to leave a comment, feel welcome,
you can use a fake name if you like , and if you
want to post as "Anonymous" then that is your choice,
it's just that your comments don't mean as much when
you do this.

Too harsh?

Time will tell.

(Update2017:  Time has tell,  Emily Writes has now became famous,
the internet has no hope)

Garth Brooks Announces 2014 World Tour














Garth Brooks has announced he is coming out of
retirement for a world tour in 2014.

He said the tour will be a three year tour.

This is what Garth fans have been hoping for, ever
since he announced his retirement in December 1999.

Garth has been true to his word, he always said he
wouldn't tour until his youngest daughter has left home
to go to college.

Now that day has come.

The music world will see what they have been missing,
for the past 14 years.

Sure there has been the occasional weekend
 since 2010 where he has performed his one
 man show at the Wynn and a boxset or two, but
 again he has been total honest for the
past 14 years and stuck to his guns.

Now the time has come, will Garth Brooks 2014 be as
big as Garth Brooks of the 1990's, judging by  the reaction
today on social media, there is a good chance.

With a new tour, comes a new album, IMHO Garth
Brooks will show the music world, that his music
along with him as a person, has heart soul and integrity.

It's been a long long wait for us Garth Brooks fans, and now
the time has come.

His Friends in Low Places are all waiting in anticipation, believe
me, the wait will be worth it.

Roll on 2014.

YEHAA!

Breaking Bad Finale



















Greatest TV show in History.

Greatest Finale in History.

Greatest Acting in History.

Greatest Directing in History.

The list goes on and on and on.

To everybody involved with Breaking Bad,
you gave me  the greatest television experience
I have had in my life.

Thanks, Bitches.



He's Back
















If there was any doubt that Garth Brooks could still
be a major player in the music business when he comes
out of retirement in 2014, it was laid to rest.

His last show at the Wynn, won the Friday night ratings,
he double the ratings of Lady Gaga.

He showed his funny side, he showed his voice, he showed
his love and respect for the music and those that came
before him.

For 14 years, music has been without Garth Brooks.

He has now returned, bigger and better than ever.

Roll on 2014.

I cannot wait.

Brian Dies














F you, Seth.

You have killed off Family Guy.

This wasn't arty, this wasn't hard hitting television, this
wasn't making a statement, this was solely done to be
mean.


You suck.

Here's hoping your ratings tank.

Mexico:4 NZ:2











Mexico is going to the World Cup,
New Zealand isn't.

NZ played far far better (apart from Brockie)
The young guys did well, our crosses were a
mess, but we actually looked like a football
team.

Here's hoping the right coach will be picked, and
there would be new people in management.

The future is looking for bright.

Here's hoping the results will be.

Time will tell.

Miracles do happen















If the New Zealand All Whites needed a reminded that
Miracles can happen in sport, they only need to look at
the USA Ice Hockey team that beat the mighty Russians
for the Gold Medal in 1980.

What the All Whites need though is beyond a miracle,
if they were too beat Mexico 4-0 and qualify for the
world cup, nothing in our sporting history would come
close, I would say it would go down as the biggest
sporting upset THE WORLD has ever seen or will seen.

To qualify for Brazil before the first leg would've  been a
massive upset, perhaps in the top ten sporting upsets of
all time.

To win the second leg 4-0 and qualify, would be the biggest
thing that has ever happen in the history of sport.

That is why it won't happen.

Reality rules over the dreamers.

At around 930pm Wednesday night, kiwis wont be
jumping for joy, we wont be setting trends on twitter,
we wont be txting family and friends around the world,
about how the All Whites did it.

We will be very proud, that we put up a better effort, we
will talk about the future of NZ Football and who should
lead us, but this will be no miracle on ice.

Let the 37 thousand kiwis have fun, let us sing and chant,
let us admire the Mexicans, let there be talk before the
match that IF we get a early GOAL, things could go our
way, but deep down know, it's just too big of a  hill to
climb.

We're not going to Brazil, a Miracle on Ice is just that,
a Miracle that only happens once in History.

But that's okay,  as long as we play like a football
team should.

Here's hoping that we do.

Time will tell.

Ricki Herbert and the All Whites


















Ricki Herbert and the All Whites can make
it up to the New Zealand sporting public, by
creating the biggest sporting  upset in the history of
the world.

Time will tell.

Hey Mexico Meet the All Whites New Captain













We are going to kick your ass in the return leg.


Ricki Herbert Must be Fired
















(Update2: Ricki Herbert contuines to the tell the
media his tactics were right, and it was just the players
execution that was wrong. All I would say to that is,
Ricki, there is a reason no other country or club has
given you a job offer, think about that for a second)

(Update1: Any respect I have for Herbert has gone 
out the window, according to him, his tactics were
right, the players just didnt execute them well enough)


The worst coaching performance in the history of
world sport, nothing comes close.

From his selections, to the tactics, to the travel arrangements,
Ricki Herbert did everything wrong.

You simply cannot go to the Azteca and park the mother
fuckin bus, thinking your going to hold them. You don't
select a player in Jeremy Christie, who hasn't even got
a freakin club side, a player who got turned down by
a division three USA club side.

His tactics this morning was a disgrace, you can park
the bus against defensive european sides, but this was
never going to work against Mexico.

The players were itching to get forward, but this cock
sucker (Frank Van Hattum knows what im talking about)
keep waving his players back, they were too scared to
do anything, plenty of times we had the ball in open
space but Herbert's coaching was just to get them  to boot
the hell out it and never move forward. To see Herbert
on the sideline waving his players back, made me feel
ill.

Steve summer was right, the game was lost in the first
half, because of Herbert's coaching, it was freakin  an
81-19 possession rate.

Here is a man, Ricki Herbert, who has only ever WON
one game of importance and that was against Bahrain,
just one freakin win, and he is such a narcissist little
c**t, he wouldn't change his tactics today, before it
was too late.

I wouldn't mind if we had the right players on the field
and played the right style, and still lose 5-1 to Mexico.

But to lose because of freakin Herbert's coaching, just
pisses me off. Again Mexico should win by this much,
but it was just the way we were coached and how we
played that gets me upset.

Herbert must be fired, the board of NZ football must
be fired, yes that includes you too Van Hattum, Herbert
your a disgrace and you should never be allowed near
a football team again.

Roll on 2018!

Reality



















Is no friend of the dreamer.

Azteca Stadium: New Zealand Versus Mexico (Repost)














(Update: The New Zealand media, as I thought, have
failed to tell the Kiwi public, how big this game is going
to be, decided to repost my original post)


Nothing comes close, nothing ever will in our sporting
history.

No matter what anyone in the New Zealand media say,
the New Zealand Versus Mexico soccer game will
be the biggest worldwide TV Audience for any sporting
event involving NewZealand.

Peter Lester might say otherwise, Martin Snedden might
say otherwise, but nothing will ever come close to the
ratings this match will have.

The worldwide coverage this game is going to get, is
something that has never happen to any New Zealand
sports team in our history, I cant emphasis that
point enough.

I also can't emphasis enough, what faces the All Whites.
(All Whites is the nickname of the NZ soccer team for those
that dont know)

They will be playing at the hardest venue to win in
world sport, not only the altitude, but 104 thousand
crazed fans, and I mean crazed, when the USA played
there in 2004, the crowd chanted "Osama Bin Laden"
The opposition fans were pelted with bags of urine, batteries
and glass bottles, and thats only at the game, opposition
fans have to get a police escort to the game and back again,
their hotel will be surrounded by Mexican fans who will
be doing there best to make life hell for the kiwi fans.

The players themselves are in for a worst time, late night
phone calls, bomb threats and anything else that could
disrupt the team's preparation, during the game all hell
will break lose if the All Whites score, fire crackers
will be thrown, think  104 thousand Tuco's from
Breaking Bad and that is what the All Whites face.

Mexico doesn't lose at Azteca, there is a reason
that Jerry Jones the owner of the Dallas Cowboys
pulled down his football stadium in Dallas and
built a new One Billion dollar one, he had gone
to a soccer game at the Azteca and wanted to
build a stadium where your team cant lose.

If the biggest miracle happens and New Zealand
wins at the Azteca, it will be the greatest upset
in the history of sports involving New Zealand,
and hands down they will deserve the Halberg
award and I will go as far to say, if this happen
and they werent awarded the Halberg, then
every New Zealand sporting Journo should
hang their head in shame.

My one wish is the media tells the New Zealand
public all this, without any reference to any
other code, without having to add the usual
references that they do.

Again, this event, the first leg, New Zealand
versus Mexico is hands down the biggest
event in our sporting history and will get
more viewers than any other sporting
event New Zealand has ever been in.

Fingers and toes crossed for a win.

Time will tell.

Graph says it all.















The above graph taken from a post from
the blog "The Hand Mirror" says it all.

TV3 (mediaworks) You suck



















Words fail me.

TV3 deal with Fox has fallen thru, so
we now don't have Homeland, Modern
Family or The Simpsons.

But we do get to watch Z Grade, reality
TV shows, hosted by Z Grade hosts,
watched by Morons.

I now think its time that TV3/TV4 are put to
rest, they had a good run 24 years, but never
found a successful formula.

They jumped the shark today, talking of
a new reality show for Alice and Caleb, and
losing three of the best programs on air.

Too bad the viewing public of New Zealand
are the real losers.

If only there was a way to watch tv shows,
other than on tv.

Goodbye Jack











Goodbye to Jack the best person
on any reality tv show ever.

He didn't make the final of
Junior MasterChef, I guess
the producers wanted a
boy/girl final for tv ratings.

Jack handed himself, with
class and dignity beyond his years
and unlike Troy "THAT GUY" Glass
he wasn't a jerk, he didn't think lowly
of others cooking and he  wanted
others to do well.

He was/is  this Generations Vinne
DelPino, hes a credit to his parents
and himself.

Well done young man, here's hoping
you have a bright future.

Time will tell.

Steven Adams First NBA Game















2 Points, 3 rebounds, 1 Assist in 18 Minutes.

He also learned so fast, boxing out well, and not
letting the Thunder down.

The kid is the real deal and has the making of a
great ball player.

Going to be a great season.

Red Sox Win!!!



















And stayed strong they did!!!

Well done to the Red Sox for winning the World
Series!!

Loved the fact that Fans marched to the finish
line of the Boston Marathon and chanted "Boston
Strong"

Party hard, Boston!


NZ 1 USA 1



















Congrats to the New Zealand's womans football
team, for drawing a match with the world's number
one team, USA.

This result is huge for womans sport in New Zealand,
and hopefully a call for funding for womans soccer
will be made.

Well done to the Ferns.

If Im going to get Banned









Has to be a for a good reason, so I might
as well go out in that way.

If people are that grotesque in their ideology
and have that much hatred for the USA, I
dont EVER want to go to their website
again.

So to The blog "The Standard"
 its goodbye, its  sickening that
you think your allowed to destroy memorial
sites to the victims of 9/11 and the Boston
Bombing because you don't like USA
international policy.

I have zero respect for you guys, what you think your
allowed to do is beyond repugnant and
it's cruel.

It's a sad day for humanity when people think
they can do actions like this and call it a political
protest.

It's not, it's just plain mean.

MasterChef Junior USA Season 1 Episode 5 (That Guy beats the Other Guy)











(Update: Not sure why Im blocked
from commenting on Troy's  Masterchef
facebook page, when Im allowed to post
on the other contestant's pages, again, my
post is to do with society, Junior Master Chef
is just a good example of this)

(To TORY'S AGENT, this post is not a 
dig at Troy but how society effects
people's behavior to each other)


Just like in real life, That Guy beats The Other Guy.

Tonight's Junior Masterchef episode, had me watching
with my mouth open, because this episode could've been
used in a human behavioral experiment. For me
it sums up, what I have written about during the past
few years, it's why I do my blog, its about how society treats
people with different personalities, and how people with
those personalities act, because of society.

Make no Mistake, TORY IS THAT GUY   and
GAVIN IS THE OTHER GUY.

The kids had to cook in a restaurant, Troy was on
Gavin's team along with little wee Sarah.


Troy didn't want to be picked on Gavin's team
because he doesn't believe Gavin is the best cook.


Because Gavin had the best dish last week, he
was made team captain.

Troy was having none of that. Troy who is 12
decided to try and take over, and of course
Gavin who is 10, didn't argue, now I don't
think Gavin didn't argue because of his age,
but I think he didn't argue because Troy is
That Guy and of course Gavin is The Other Guy.

It was so mindblowing to watch, Troy (Thru no
fault of his own) just decided to take over, that
is because he has been treated like That Guy
his whole young life and will continue to be.

While Gavin was treated like The Other Guy
and will also continue to be.

Even at the end when Sarah and Gavin got
eliminated, and even though Troy didn't show
much respect to Sarah, she thought Troy will
win it all.

Now I didn't see much difference in cooking
skills tonight, Gavin was certainly calmer and
didn't seem to make mistakes.

So why eliminate Gavin and not Troy?

It's sad that society can  predetermined
someone's destiny, and it's sad that people
will always want That Guy  and not
The Other Guy, again no disrespect to
Troy at all, he's probably a great kid who
is very very talented, but lets face it, in his
life he will have an advantage over the
Gavin's of this world, this is just the start,
lets hope it doesn't effect him, and give
a thought to Gavin, because I'm pretty
sure in 40 years time, if the kids ever
have a reunion, it will be That Guy
who is remembered.

Not The Other Guy.

And that just breaks my heart.

Modern Family













Didnt review it last week, so these are my quick quick
thoughts on the last two episodes, last week and this one.

Both classics, both ten out of ten. One revolved around
everybody arriving late to Jay's favorite restaurant, the
other Cam and Mitch planning in their wedding and not
wanting to use Pepper, but Pepper's assistant.

Both shows were 10/10.

A couple of thoughts though,  The Dunphy kids need
more story lines, they havent been used much, and there
needs to be less Lily.

Although Lily probably had her best scene yet at the end
of the episode getting driven crazy by her two dads, who
were talking about the wedding.

Overall, everything is great, here's hoping it stays that way.

Time will tell.

AMP Insurance New Zealand: Worst Commercial Ever












(The Following is my Opinion, nothing is stated
as fact)

The txt on the picture was created by someone at
the Yellow Fever  soccer forums.


Of all the dumb cliche ideas, companies in New Zealand
have for commercials, these are the ones that piss me
off the most.

The ad revolves around some little kid, (aged about seven, but he
talk like he is two) and his Grandad.  The kid's dad has died.
So he is asking dear old Grandpa about what his dad was like?
(The Grandad reminds me of old man Herbert from Family Guy)

The Dad apparently was nice and cool and one of the good
guys.

The Kid then asks did his love like "Rugby or Soccer"

The look on the old guys face was, well thats a silly question,
and proudly said "Rugby"  the boy in a squeaky happy voice
replies  "Me Too"

The voice over in the ad tells us "AMP Insurance, we know what
New Zealanders like the most"

The kid grabs the plane, and the word Family comes up.

WTF!!!!

I mean they might as well just got the punk ass snot face
little kid to say "Rugby is better than soccer"  or
"Real men play rugby"

It's Just another dig ,NZ advertisers have to do to
appeal to the rugby heads, and that dig is knocking
other sports.

Several other  companies have done this in the past.  Also
Government run ads have done this.

Why did AMP feel the need to run an ad like this, I
dont know?, were they paid some backhander by
the NZRFU? Are the ceo's all Rugby Heads who
thought this would be funny?

Just another example of why I will never follow
the sport of Rugby Union or will never use
AMP for my Insurance.

Jack MasterChef Junior USA











The best person on MasterChef Junior
USA.

He is without a doubt, this generation's,
Vinne Del Pino.


Is Junior Master Chef USA wrong











(Update: A Comment I left on the Official Junior 
Mastechef facebook for Troy has been deleted,
the comment just asked, did he apply for the 
show or did his agent get him on?)

(Update 2: Heard from Troy's agent, it appears he
did apply like anyone to be on the show because
he likes cooking and not because the show wanted
kid actors, a big sorry to him, and I wish him well
on the show)


Junior MasterChef Troy (That Guy)











(Update: Have changed this post after the
comments left by Troy's agent)

I believe society will treat Troy like  that guy

I believe that Troy is  one heck of a kid and will
grow into one heck of a adult and wish him all the
best for his career.

I do believe he will be treated differently than most
because he has the makings of being  that guy to
society.

All the best to him.

Modern Family: "Farm Strong"















Again my review for Modern Family sees me giving
the show 10/10.

This week's episode was titled Farm Strong and revolved
about members of the family being sensitive.

The plots revolved around Jay wanting to give Gloria glasses,
Cam's sister getting engaged to the man that Cam use to have
a crush on, and Phil and Claire deciding to miss Luke's soccer
game, but Claire going anyway.

It was a heartwarming episode, but the highlights were the comedy
involving Phil accidently killing some birds, of course there were
references by his family, to keep reminding him, what he did.

The best visual scene was a throwback to The Birds, Phil looked
up to see one crow on the roof looking at him. Then a cut away,
then when they went back to Phil he looks up again, and half a
dozen crows were there.

The look on his face was priceless,  and sums up what Modern
Family has been doing so well this season.

10/10


Junior MasterChef Gavin gets a B











As predicted in my previous post, Gavin
is The Other Guy.

Last night on Junior Masster Chef, he didn't
get eliminated, too early on for that, but he
didnt wow the judges, he earned a B.

The other contestants, just sort of shrugged
their shoulders and politely clapped, none of
of the kids said good job, they didnt boo him,
he was just kinda there.


He was also the last contestant to be picked
for teams, despite not being the worst cook.


Sure Sarah may of yelled out "whip it like a man
Gavin" but I think she wouldve said it no matter
what was happening.  Of course Troy, the grungy
kid got the plaudits from the kids and judges themselves.

I'm sure next week or the week after will be the week that
Gavin goes, wont be much fanfare, people wont laugh or cry,
he will just sort of go.

Welcome to the life of The Other Guy.

Junior MasterChef (The other guy)











This is who I was talking about, when I
did my post, The Other Guy.

I had no idea, who Gavin was, when I did
my post, but he sums The Other Guy up
to a tee.

The kids name is Gavin, which doesnt help
for a start, and I predict that he will go through his
life being The Other Guy.

Gavin is a contestant on the USA version of Junior
Master Chef. He is around 10-12 years of age, he
didn't get eliminated last week, the girl who got eliminated,
he went  to her and patted her on the back and wished her well,
she didnt push him away, but she also didnt get emotional,
she just sort of acknowledge him, but when she went
to the other contestant's, she burst out crying.

This will sum up what he's going to go through, thru out life.

In this comp, I'm sure he will do well, he wont be eliminated
early, but he wont thrill the judges, he will clap and cheer the
other kids on, and about halfway thru he will go.

When there is a group challenge, he will just be there, he may
not be picked on, but he wont be listen to or taken seriously,
if he gives words of encouragement, people will just shrug
it off, if their is a error, people will blame him, not to be
nasty, but just because its him.

As a adult, he will go through  the same thing in the work place, someone
may get fired, he will try and cheer them up, but because the
advice is coming from him, he won't be listen to, because
he is the other guy.

He may or may not get married, it will be hard for him, the girl
he has an eye on, wont have her friends saying "yeah go out
with Gavin"

Gavin seems like a nice kid and will grow into a nice adult who
wont hurt anyone, he wont be taken seriously, he will just be
there, because he is the other guy.

I hope Im wrong.

Time will tell.

Homeland renamed Danaland










Season three of Homeland is  to be renamed Danaland.

The show which was about Terrorism, War, CIA and
mental illness has changed.

It's now like totally about an awesome like teen girl, who's
in the house, BOOM GIRLFRIEND.

She takes selfies, she self harms, she swears and yells and
has teen angst, she has sex, she has teen angst, she wants to
live, she's in the house.

The show which now appeals to 9-13 year old girls will
probably be moved  along side Glee and the
remake of Beverly hills 902010.

Way to kill off a series, writers.

One more chance writers, one more episode.

It's two strikes so far.

Can you save it.

Time will tell.

Freddy



















Bout time, they made another one, isn't?



Cuts not made by Rifle



















A scientist has ruled that cuts on Robin Bain's
dad's hands, were not a result of him loading
a rifle.

The only person's fingerprints that was ever found on
the rifle, was David Bain, who is pictured.

Maybe its time for New Zealand to say sorry to the late  Robin
Bain, and  stop asking for compensation for David.

I anit holding my breath though.

The New Zealand Rugby Union Fan














The New Zealand Rugby Union fan is
without doubt the most ignorant, pathetic
sportsfan on the face of the planet, they
will never grow up.

They have such a chip on their shoulder it
never ceases to amaze me.

I thought they might change, when NZ first got
paytv and we could delight in all the different
sports that are played around the world.

I thought once the internet came, that they could
see the world has its own sports that they love.

But alas no, the New Zealand Rugby Union fan
still needs to belittle other sports. A writer for stuff
decided to rip into America football, using the usual
false cliche's, all for the purpose to try and make their
sport of Rugby Union look better.

League fans don't do this, Basketball fans don't do this,
soccer fans don't do this, cricket fans don't do this.

But for some reason the Rugby Union fans of NewZealand
feel the need to knock other sports.

Maybe it's insecurity, maybe its because deep down they know
the world doesn't actually follow the All Blacks, I'm not sure
but its pretty hateful, and it sometimes repugnant, the level of
hate the  New Zealand Rugby Union fan has for other sports.

They will never change.

Most Vile website ever






(I will not link to the website, you can find it
on google searches)

Meet, New Zealand's most vile website ever.

Not even The Standard reaches the low of the
low, this site hits every day.

I only have to say, that their writers include John
Minto, Sue Bradford and Martyn Bradbury to
let you know how repugnant this site is.

What the fuck is wrong with the left in NewZealand,
that they produce sites like this.

Basically, according to this site, everything is the fault
of the USA, with the recent shutdown, writer Martyn
Bradbury, celebrated because it meant America wont
be killing tens of thousands of babies overseas.

In the comment sections, comments such as the
USA were to blame for the Kenya Mall attacks,
was meet with 10 likes.

How can the left in NewZealand (people who in the
past have included the great David Lange and Mickey
Savage) produce such hatred , such grotesque
comments all directed at one country.

It doesn't matter what tragic event hits the USA, they're
writing such hurtful and damaging articles.

It's sad, its hateful and always surprises me, that people
would be happy if a tragic event happens in the USA.

It shouldn't surprise me though, that is what the left is
now like in NewZealand and has been for over  a
decade.

One of their writers is Julie Fairly, the brilliant writer
who started the always good "The Hand Mirror",
not sure how she can lower herself to write for
such a hurtful blog.

Not sure how anyone can?

Will the blog become a hit?

Of course it will, people love to hate.

And the New Zealand extreme left has
always loved to hate on the USA.

Very sad indeed.

Modern Family Review: "Larry's Wife"














Yet another brilliant episode from Modern Family.

Ten out of Ten.

Tonight's episode revolved around, Phil using his charm
to sell houses to recently divorced women, Jay taking
Manny to see Mary Poppins, Luke's friends beating
him and Haley at Poker with Alex saving the day, well
sort of, and Cam holding a funeral for a pretend cat.

A couple of side stories thrown in also, with a brief
appearance by Dylan.

Phil has charm, and he was using it on the woman to
sell houses, making them all think they were special,
while neglecting Claire. In the end of course, Phil got
caught out to the delight of Claire.

Cam's funeral for Larry's wife, was typical Cam, showing
him as the over the top, emotional man that he is.

The story line that got me though, was Manny not
liking Jay being aggressive at the Mall, but when
someone dared to talk thru Mary Poppins, Manny
went all George Contanza like.

Manny and Jay Celebrated by going to see Death Wish.

The Gloria and the baby being evil storyline did seem
thrown in there, and the show could do with less Lily.

The Dunphy kids were amazing as always, I love how
they always turn to Alex when they're in a bind, even
though as she said, she went to far and had to go with
Rueben.

I hope further episodes use the Dunphy kid's even more.

All in all another brilliant episode, the show just gets
better and better.

10/10.

Hey Psychics Take The Challenge



















Five questions.

The questions have been choosen carefully.

They require accurate answers.  Cold reading
cannot be used to answer these questions, so
no vague answers.

Hot reading cannot be used to answer these
questions, no amount of searches on google,
social media will help you answer these questions.

You can only answer these questions if you
are truly psychic.

So here goes, I will personally donate to
the charity of your choice, if you can get one
right.

1: What is the codeword myself and my friend
use to use at malls.

2: City of restaurant, that it took me 45 minutes to
eat one piece of chicken.

3: What did the lady hand out to me and other people for free in
a pool in vegas.

4: My fav song as a child.

5: What was funny about the server in question 2?

Quinn Woodward Pu















Quinn Woodward Pu is the lady who thought she
was clever and witty, by sending out to all forms
of social media a tweet she sent to a guy.

What happened was, Quinn had a one night stand
with this fella, the guy respectfully send her a txt
the next day, saying it was just a one off thing, and
he was sorry,  and that she was a real nice
girl, and he wished her well.

Well Quinn wasnt taking any crap from this guy.

Not only did she out a txt that was around five times
longer, she felt the need to tell the guy, she has been
published twice and owned a condo and has hooked
back up with her ex.

She then decided to use her blog, facebook and
tweeter to tell the world what she did.

I guess she expected, reactions like....

"BOOM GIRLFRIEND."

or

"YOU TAKE NO SH*T FROM NOONE."

What actually happened was, that
people thought the guy had class for even
txting her and not making her wait to see
if he wanted to see her again.

Secondly, she made a laughing stock of herself,
she tried to prove that she was better, yet she
came off as a D grade wannabe celeb, desperate
and pitiful.

Karma's a bitch sometimes.

Let this be a lesson to people who have to be
mean and nasty, you may think your clever
and cool, but you anit, you may think people
all over twitter are cheering you on, but they're
actually laughing  at you.

If someone sends you a nice txt, even though they
may be wrong in your eyes, you send them something
nice back, it's just the right thing to do.

Too bad Quinn Woodward Pu hasn't figure this
out.

Modern Family Season Premiere











Modern Family Season Five started tonight with a
double episode and it showed why it has won
four emmy's in a row for best Comedy.

It was nothing short of brilliant.

Funniest line goes to Haley who when she saw her
sister stressing out, she said to her parents, "This is
what happens when teens don't have sex.

Funniest visual scene goes to Phil, when he was wearing
short shorts, and said "One out of three anit bad" after
Claire talks of summers past with fireflys,  cut off shorts
and ice cream.

Manny's trip to Columbia showed a warmth by Jay when
he reads his letter.

Other stories line was Luke and Manny first day at High
School, Claire working for Jay, and Phil and Gloria being
in a coffee commercial.

It was the warmth of Cam and Mitch proposing to each
other while changing a flat tyre, that made my heart soar.

A gay marriage on a mainstream network, shows how
far we have come, and shows that Modern Family does
indeed play by it's own rules, without being political, it's
a  show about love between the characters.

Every Modern Family fan will be celebrating the fact that
the show still has it, and shows no signs of aging at all.

 Ten out of Ten.





Sport Science Versus No 8 Fencing Wire














Sports Science will always beat the no 8 fencing wire.

New Zealand can only hope that the days of people
saying, "Colin Meads worked on a farm"

or

"Our boys need to go to Colin Meads farm and they will
win."

are over.

It's cemented in reality to say, "There isn't one
international player or team that would take
the no8 fencing wire approach.

For far too long Kiwis have lived with the myth
that sport science is bad, and just digging in and
doing the hard yards is right.

Nothing can be further from the truth.

Just look at what the two options produce.

No 8 Fencing wire produces  Netballers that
shoot from two feet and complain a bump is
too psychical.

Sport Science produces Brittany Griner, a
female Basketballer that can dunk and
Brenna Stewart a player that can shoot from
40 feet.

No 8 Fencing wire produces Netballers that have
a vertical leap of 10 inches, the Wnba producers
players with a vertical leap of 30 inches.

Sport Science gives you a top three finish on the
Olympic Table.

Sport Science gives you top rowers.

No 8 Fencing wire gives you  a medal in show jumping
and a medal in P/80/C class boat racing and a medal at
the over 40 Lawn Bowls world champs.

Sport Science gives you the best leagues on the planet,
NBA/EPL/NFL.

No 8 Fencing Wire gives you the ITM cup.

Sport Science gives you an NFL player with the
vertical leap of an NBA player.

No 8 Fencing Wire gives you a downhill mountain
bike, bmx rider.

Sport Science gives you top class sprinters.

No 8 Fencing Wire gives you a long distance uphill
runner.

Kiwis need to embrace sport science, every successful
country on the planet and successful sports person embraces
sports science.

Every successful Kiwi who plays a GLOBAL SPORT
embraces it.

So why are Kiwis still against it, and why are so many
Kiwis still screaming out on message boards, that they
hate sport science?

I will never know.


Congrats USA















Congrats to the USA, for winning the America's Cup
and congrats for also being so gracious in victory, and
being wonderful hosts to the kiwis who flew over.

You did your country proud.

Well done.

New Zealand's Got Talent













Is it just me, or did the kid who sang, "My old man's
a dustman" remind anyone else of what David Bain
would've  been like as a kid?

Was that you Mr Blair Robertson



















(What might appear as a "miss" or "wrong" will often

 prove true later upon checking with other
 family members or friends) Blair Robertson.

The above Line is what all psychic mediums
 use, if you think they're wrong
they turn the blame to you.

(The following is just my opinion, nothing is stated as fact,
for entertainment purposes only)

Somebody has stopped my tweets with links
being showed up on searches on Twitter.

I'm kinda guessing its Blair Robertson, can't
be sure, but it's a say bet, that he contacted
the good folk of twitter.

I'm quite surprised that someone that hangs out
with Casper the friendly Ghost, will be against
free speech so much.

Anyway, I don't want  this blog being
stopped or censored,  so this will be my last post
I do on Blair Robertson, just incase he feels the
need to contact google.

So Mr Blair Robertson, the man who speaks
to ghosts, and predicts worldwide events, I
hope your happy and well, I hope your rolling
in a pile of money as you go on your merry way
ripping off families that are grieving.

I hope you can look at yourself in the mirror.

I hope you have your team on people, keeping
an eye out, just in case, someone may be writing
negative stuff about you on the internet, because
free speech is a bad thing, huh!

Say Hello to Casper for me, don't forgot to predict
an earthquake in India or a bus crash in China.

And always remember, its about the money, it's
something to do with money, there is money involved.

I predict you will never change.

You don't have to be psychic, to know that is true.
