One out, one in

Exit the football (rugby league) season and enter the basketball. No complaints; my team (South Sydney Rabbitohs) made the finals for the first time since 1989 and will have a stronger line-up in 2008. I'm not as ardent a basketball fan, but at least there's more of it to watch. My picks for the 07-08 season: Perth and Cairns to fight it out for the NBL title, and Nathan Jawai to take rookie of the year. Also, Patrick Mills to be the first Aboriginal / T.I player to draw interest from the NBA after a strong season, leading St. Mary's to the WCC championship in US collegiate basketball.

Went to my first hockey game of the season just this weekend. Holy violence on blades, batman. You really should come watch with me, if you don't enjoy the game you will certainly enjoy watching a middle aged singel mom get all amped up over a bunch of guys bashing on each other.

Would be great fun I know mate, I wonder though - do hockey players get suspended for long when violent? I'd hope not. :D

Violence is part of the game. youtube Tie Domi and that gives you a good idea of just how much they allow.

Yeah, action like that hasn't been seen in rugby league since the early 1980's. That Tie Domi guy is brilliant to watch though. I think I want his shirt just from watching the fights haha. Not a great fighter, but once he latches onto the front of another guys shirt he's like a pit bull you just can't get off.

Dude has a head made of concrete, I have never seen anyone that can take a beating like he can.
