Anyone remember Nigel Benn, the boxer? if course you do, World Champion, is the best way to remember him, don't you think?
Well at 55 he is making a come back.
I was just glad when they managed to talk Frank Bruno (Another great fighter) out of making a fool of himself.

Box is interesting sport. You can be very successful in your 40s (maybe even 50s).
That is not in case with football and some other sports were if you don't make success in 20, you never will.
Let see what will happen. Foreman became champ in 45.

We've all heard the expression, "cancelled or postponed due to rain", which usually applies to Brit cricket or occasionally European footie,
but cancelled due to typhoon !? :unsure:
I am of course referring to the much waited game of of the England Vx France in Japan. Long term rivals from the days of the 5 nations and now the 6 nations. Although both are through to next 'round', it's a bit of a bummer for the fans.

Well for those who do already know, the Springboks are the new world rugby champions. South Africa 32, England 12. Erika and I went to a guest house, as opposed to a bar, to watch it. After my last experience of watching the rugby in a bar, we decided that the guest house would be better. England Vs NZ, while Erika was in the shopping mall, shopping :unsure: ;);).
Obviously there were a lot more Brits than kiwis, which is alright. What p$ssed me off were the Thai girlfriends/whores. They were all cheering for England. I'm sure that after the game if you asked one of them what shape the ball was, they wouldn't have a clue.
So we went to a guest house which is also a bar and restaurant - no Thai hookers. I had turned my jacket and was supporting England and Erika was supporting SA. Not that she particularly likes the Springboks, it's just that she cannot stand les Anglais.
For those of you who did not watch the match, England were still in with a chance until the 'boks scored their try. Erika was overjoyed and for a brief moment I felt like smashing my chang beer bottle in her face. Nah, well for a brief moment anyway, but she's a good girl, so like I say the thought was brief.
And from that moment after the try, it was down hill all the way. NZ finished 3rd which was disappointing, but there you go.

No, but I was often on the edge with my first aid kit.
i like it when England play Germany... i remember a guy who lives a couple of doors from me gobbed off about England being beaten (was a good while back). He was lucky his wife was there because i was going to chin him. A skinny German p#ssy gob sh#te. as i got out my car he made a stupid comment & i looked over & asked him if he had a problem, his wife told him to shut up so i just left it. point is some people get too serious about sport, football ..etc. I mean i would have beat him like a bitch & i was a bit annoyed but i know he would have phoned the police & he had a witness. Chill out Joe... :ROFLMAO:
