Ka mate, Ka Mate - Aotearoa Maori Chorale


So yes, I heart football.

The Pita?  Yes.

but

the man . . . eats. sleeps. breathes.

R U G B Y .

Tonight game one of the World Cup [thank goodness this occurs only once every four years].

The match up . . . .

All Blacks [NZ]

vs.

Tonga

Did I mention Dawn is a bit of a Tonga fan? . . . due to that awesome hubby of hers.

Every [best] friendship needs a rivalry right?! ;]

Did I mention the world cup last not weeks but months?!

Life as I know it ---- is over.

Any one up for a "haka off"?

You bet cha - I've got a video of lil ole' blonde, white girl me . . . . doing the Haka.

Happy.  Haka [All Blacks]. Thursday!

Go All Blacks!!!

You'll love this story, I was at the gym yesterday wearing my New Zealand shirt, and a guy was like, nice shirt! We started talking, and turns out he knows some of the guys on the USA rugby team! USA has a tall order to win even one game over there, but will be awesome if they pull off even 1 win.

I'm hoping NZ wins the whole thing!

Did someone say contest?!! I have no idea what a haka is??

Jill said...

I have no idea what a haka is either...and I'm almost certain I've never seem more than a minute of a pro soccer game. Am I fired from the contest?

Char said...

I LOVE the Haka. It gives me goosebumps every time I see it. But don't get too excited about the World Cup after all your All Blacks got bounced by a few marsupials a couple of weeks ago. Go Wallabies!!

Emz said...

Char. Char. Char. With a name like wallaby.....;) we'll win when it counts. ;)

Jill & jess Learn/read/video up on it!! This contest will rock. Just YouTube haka & send me a video of YOU doing one!!

I swear I'll make the prize Soooooo worth the possible humiliation. ;)

Jason said...

I seriously just got chills from that and I am fired up. I am so doing that before my Half-Ironman in October.

And we are doing this before the start of the RnRLV and ending with a little hammer time!!!!

The Hungry Runner Girl said...

Amy said...

Go All Blacks! I lived in NZ during the world cup 8 years ago. It was a heart breaking one for the kiwis. Daniel Carter is my (secret) boyfriend.
