"Step 1 would be to turn comments back on on NRT. Relationships are two way beasts"
Agree - find it annoying that there is no two-way relationship, and resent the lecturing tone - even over matters with which I agree with NRT - bad as a newspaper editorial.
- and i hardly ever comment
Talk of the iconic status of the stadium that will really "...put Auckland on the world map..." - can anybody else name an iconic sports stadium that has done this? Art gallery...yes (assorted Guggenhiems). Office building...yes (Empire State, Chrysler, Sears Tower, etc...). Sports stadum...mmm...not really. Munich (perhaps...and perhaps for all the wrong reasons). does anyone know what the Olympic Stadium in Sydney actually looks like?
Colosseum? And they don't even use it for events any longer!
When I die, bury me with my boots on
And my blig black Steson hat
And dollar piece on my watch chain
To show the gang I died standing pat.
Six gamblers to carry my coffin
Six chorus girls to sing me along
And stick a jazzband on the hearse tailboard
To raise all hell as we rattle along
That should about cover it...
