I once hit a mate between the eyes with a frisbee. Amusingly enough, if I hadn't shouted a warning he wouldn't have turned round and it probably would have missed him :guilty:

Only thing I know about rugby, is that the New Zealand All-Blacks are supposedly good at it.

I must have missed that. Have the South Africans been informed?

How bout them Boston Celtics? 5-0, average margin of victory 22 points!

Except for the World Classic, where the U.S. gets pwned because all of our great major league baseball players are actually from various Caribbean islands and Japan.

The "World" in World Series refers to the name of newspaper that sponsored the first one.

Unbelievable! The Finnigan's Fumblers won the World Derbybowl this year over the Tigers! zI tell you, their hometown of Temperancebacon will be going off, all fourteen and a half of their population! Everyone thought they were going to be beat in the Lasertag round, but they camme back with some brilliant tactics that would have made General Hoobervader himself proud!
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.
