I am thinking seriously about important discussions here and working up a post on patriarchal order. But I am also working on the sad reality of the jolts and shakes of this particular year. The mighty Crusaders [Christchurch rugby team] were not so mighty on Saturday night, losing 13-18 to the rampaging Reds [of Brisbane]. The sublime, svelte Silver Ferns [NZ netball team] were not sublime, giving up a 26-20 lead to lose 57-58 in the World Championship final to the audacious and agile Australian Diamonds. So what does that tell us about the World Rugby Cup final in late October, 2011?
Start mourning now :(
