Sheedy and Hird: Genius and Magic

I was 8 when Sheeds became coach so I don't remember a time without him there. It's gonna feel really weird having a new coach, hopefully one of Sheedy's protégés (Neale Daniher, Mark Harvey, Mark Thompson, Tim Watson and now Dean Bailey all are or were senior coaches). Whoever it may be has got some big shoes to fill, not only did he lead the Bombers with top-line results he also revolutionised the game to the benefit of every player, team and spectator.

As for Hirdy, the Bombers have had other captains and champions in my time but, by god, the man was a fucking magician and it's sad to see him go. Hirdy, just by being Hirdy, would probably make a great coach and it would be nice to see him stay in footy. Hey Hirdy, I hear the Bombers are looking for a fresh coach...........

Thanks fellas.

Mimi stakes the high ground!!!

Speaking of heinous bitchosity, I was ready to castrate and disembowel these two DePaul-hat-wearing Chads on the El, as they went into an EXTREME and MINUTELY DETAILED critique of various girls' appearances. Is she hot? She's pretty hot. Well, her body is hot, her face not so much. You're crazy, her face is totally hot. See, I used to think her face was hot, but one day I noticed that her lips are really thin and like one side is kind of higher than the other. Yeah, and did you see her last week when she had that huge zit? What about Other Girl? Oh shit dude, she's gotten so fat. She used to be hot but now she's a cow. She's got great tits though. Her hair is so busted, man, she needs to quit coloring it or something.
AND ON AND ON AND ON until I shoved the headphones into my ears and tried not to bite my own tongue in half. I hate to break it to you morons, but it is not our job to live up to your standards of fuckability. Unless there is some magic potion that will turn you back into human beings, I hope you and all the rest of your brotherhood fall into a vat of pig shit and drown. Although I don't think pig shit is kept in vats. Why would it be?

Mimi, there is nothing wrong with having a bitch & whinge about the foul vagaries of the opposite sex, but get off the high horse.... or, as JC would have put it "Thems without, cast first."

As for storing pig shit in vats - fertilizer.

Message from Rudy

We look upon authority too often and focus over and over again, for 30 or 40 or 50 years, as if there is something wrong with authority. We see only the oppressive side of authority. Maybe it comes out of our history and our background. What we don't see is that freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be. Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.

Fuck me!!!!!!!!

The night too quickly passes
And we are growing old,
So let us fill our glasses
And toast the days of gold;
When finds of wondrous treasure
Set all the land ablaze,
And you and I were faithful mates
All through the roaring days!
Henry Lawson "The Roaring Days"

Catch ya later, Nipper.......

He may be a stuck-up old racist but in some small way Philip is a man after my own heart.
