GAA Discussion / Re: 2015 Mayo Jersey Design
« on: October 20, 2014, 12:01:01 AM »
The inherent problem with all these jerseys is that no matter which one is chosen they will still be worn by Mayo men. That's the fundamental flaw in each.

The majority of native Americans don't want the name to change but that fact seems to be overlooked. And honestly would a team adopt a name they thought was derogatory. That would suggest their thought process was "let's use the name of a people we think are below us for our team, that will really inspire our players".

But if the few get their way, Dan Snyder could always change it to the Washington Pioneers or maybe Washington Frontiersmen, in a strange echo of history.

Larry Reilly surely.

Hurling Discussion / Re: Kilkenny v Tipp

Another great game today, Kilkenny didn't let it slip this time. They were just a few fractions sharper around the half back line this time round.

Tipp were second best for much of the exchanges and breaks in the second half. They can have no complaints really the goal near the end gave them a sliver of hope that they deserved for all their hard work but Kilkenny deserved their victory.

I know a few 'Yes' men who are campaigning quite a bit.

The whole thing has taken a nasty tone lately especially after the whole nick Robinson thing. a bit of tit for tat vandalism has been going on and a bit of nasty verbals.

They are hopeful but my feeling the 'No' side will win. Too much of a perceived risk but you never know.

One way or another the UK will be a different place on Friday.

The wife's dog arrived last week. He belonged to her parents previously. They have several dogs. He's not used to being on his own as her folks are retired and the other dogs are there.

Kept him in the kitchen the first few nights. Constant whining and banging the door for hours and bits the door frame. He stops and sleeps but if someone gets up during the night it starts again.

Put him in the shed last night and same again only the neighbours got to hear him too.

We don't want him in the bedroom as he snores and farts.

Any advice. I'm guessing just put up with it till he stops. It's like having a child I imagine.

Will anyone notice the difference  :P

Bit of a pain that folks in the UK who paid for GAAGO can't watch old games back that are under sky's domain. Can't watch the Sunday game either.

No, something equally stupid would be if say during the troubles some unknown individual from Outer Mongolia or burkina fasa decided to have a rant about one of our warring tribes and someone with plenty more to worry about actually went out of their way to take offence to it and someone else actually considered it newsworthy.

The Jews are a resilient bunch, I'm sure they'll recover from this heinous attack.

And sure if they feel threatened by the odd ill-judged tweet by some obscure individual they can be rest assured there's always the safety of their middle eastern home where they'll be kept at a safe distance from such barbed words and stinging diatribes.

Going to build one myself out of wood. Need to source a few large logs to use as uprights and do a weatherboard cladding. It'll be a bit of a project but looking forward to get stuck in. Going to put reclaimed clay roof tiles on it too.

It'll be a grand excuse to sit outside, drink beer and stare at piles of wood and holes in the ground for a few months. I might even saw a bit of timber or two. There'll always be next summer to finish it off.
