As a Kiwi who lived in Japan I must confess to being unable to uncover any rugby whilst there
We saw rugby on TV when we were there last year and would've gone to a game had we been bothered (went to the baseball instead). It's pretty big in Tokyo, not soccer big, but big.
In Japan it's considered a sport for elites. This means no alcohol in the corporate boxes, as the game is meant to be enjoyed at a cerebral level.
Yeah this was way back on page one but...
Sorry, but its my screen, not yours, and I'll decide what I see there thanks.
Hahahahahahahahahaha! Shit that's funny.
But for a really detailed and humorous look at why they sucked, try Plinkett.
I discovered Plinkett a few years back and every time I think "Maybe I'll watch [insert any of the prequels]" instead I watch the corresponding Plinkett review. They really disect the films beyond the fanboyishness.
Given Hadyn is a) a contributor, and I am just a annoying commenter, and b) they'd actually spoken on Twitter previously.
I could not sigh hard enough when that happened.
Thank you, Public Address, for making me the man I am today. I have a job I love, I am able to experience things that I normally never would, and I have met (and not met but written to) the most amazing people! Thank you and Happy Birthday!
ps. I wrote to Russell in 2003 when I was looking for an outlet for my writing. He set me up with a few sports contacts and essentially said "start a blog". Best. Advice. Ever.
Nate Silver, you're on TV dude! Jeans and a ill-fitting sports coat? C'mon!
And the NY Times has a lovely graphic
Paul, I edited your comment so the link would work. :)
Just imagine if Ecoya candles used similar marketing in their prospectus.
Did you see how Ecoya was advertised within this prospectus?
Yes, to men. Given Ross' comments that women should be bought Ecoya for Christmas and that the ad features naked women, you have to think that the ads are designed for men who have no idea what their partners want but want to buy a nice gift.
Fuck tradition, fuck sponsorship, fuck everything.
THIS. IS. UGLY.
Because I have been asked: I don't like Lance Armstrong, but have no proof that he was or was not cheating. I just thought this was an incredibly convenient way to bow out of the argument for him.
Ostapchuk is now accusing Adams of having tested positive.
It's a sports writer's dream!
