Ozzie-bashing

For those of you who don't like sport, probably the majority of you as most of you are queer or female, look away now (*).

First it was the cricket and now it's the swimming. 'Nuff said!



(*) Hey, leave me alone, I like perpetuating stereotypes!

I watched Athens 2004 That was also a awesome win. I do like my sport played by South Africans because I like to support them. We are getting to the top of all our sports aren't we (LOL). And for Ryk he can kick hes shoes under my bed anytime (I will make sure he leaves it there)

Fine. But how are your curling and ice hockey teams faring? Hmmm? :)

jp and wotalottafun: ryk is rather delicious even if a bit too muscular and 'perfect' for me.

andrea: I suspect they're not faring too well! Funny you should mention curling as it's apparently a century since the perm was invented.

I am a hockey fan.. and that is new for me. Other than that i could seriously do without watching sports. They usually interupt my beloved tv programs.

Not sure if you saw that blog the other day about the recent "World Baseball Classic", the closest thing to a Baseball world cup. Any SA didnt do too well, but Australia did far worse. SA was drawn in the most difficult group with USA, Canada and Mexico. Needless to say they didnt win a game but did well against Canada and Mexico. Aus on the other hand were in a pretty easy group with Italy, Venezuela and Dominican Republic. (Ok Dom Rep. is pretty good) and also did not win a game. They did okay agaianst Dom Rep though only losing by two.

I'm queer and love sport. Sometimes though it may not be for the athletic ability but how good they look in lycra ! Ryk is a fine example too !

Sports - whats not to like?? Sweat men in ball boxes chasing other sweaty men. Think we should go back to the orinal olympics where togas were optional.

In the origional Olympics in ancient Greece competitors had to be naked ! this was to prove that they were men as women were banned from the games and spectating on pain of death !

Pleasure! Well I also knew nothing about baseball, but when I moved to the US it was the only game that I liked out of all the weird american games. Its very strategic and if you like cricket you probably could get into baseball.

Cheers

Sports? Snorrrrrrrrre.

The only one I like is cricket. Oh man, I wish some team would whip them Aussies.

I am not like most females. I love my sport and scream louder than the guys during a rugby match. The thought of a dripping wet Ryk Neetling should be enough to unsettle anyone. No matter how gay, straight or lesbian said person can be. Man, he is just awesome!!!

It was good to see the South Africans in fifth place at the Commonwealth Games even though so little is spent on Athletics and swimming in S Africa unlike in countries like Australia and the UK.
