In Topic: Erik Cole out for season, playoffs due to spinal cord contusion

His speed was really a surprise to me.  As much as it sucks for the fans, can't imagine how he's feeling.

 

 

Interrupting this post for a brief grammar pet peeve...

 

Could HAVE, not could "of".

 

Now back to your previously scheduled programming.

 

Thank you! I would hate to use my once a year post to complain about grammar, definitely more fun using it to thank someone for stepping in and doing so...

 

And on topic, man that sucks for Cole. I really liked the trade and was hoping for good things. Hope he recovers for the next season!

We'll have you seen Canada's girlfriend? She's hot.

Isn't she the US of A?


In Topic: New Zealand and South African Hockey?

You've probably not heard of our hockey down here because we have maybe 1500 players countrywide, though it is one of the fastest growing sports. The haka itself is a traditional war challenge, performed by the Maori, our indigenous people. We're pretty proud of our culture hence its incorporation into the sporting arena. I was privileged enough to perform the haka when I played for the NZ lacrosse team at the World Cup in Canada 2006. (Another minority sport with about 150 senior players in total!). There's the occasional uproar here about the overuse of the haka, but I reckon it's pretty cool, shows off our little country and gets people like yourselves who wouldn't otherwise know who we are talking about us!
