I'd so be there if it wasn't for the long travel.. But hey.. That's quite a long time too.. Maybe I can convince the GF for a little welsh weekend. Do these events fill up quickly so one has to book early, or is a month or two in advance good enough?

Oh how times have changed..

..I remember the days when Welshy people were hunted for sport and game.

Now, they have their own league?

Bravo!

Good for you Welshy people!.

Let it not be said that excessive hair and the occasional

extra digit can keep a good citizen down!

Excessive hair of welshmen (and women (if there are such things)), can be taken care of, as seen here:

I would love to do underworld. But at these sort of high brow events one wants to WIN WIN and WIN in sheer style and finesse. Then at the end of the day dance on the bar screaming who's your daddy!!!

With underworld it might be a little more like. OMG I've score a TD and I've only loss by 2 Touch downs. Then heading down to the bingo hall to sing ABBA on the karaoke

(not that I have any problems with ABBA they where great)

I'll have to start practicing my running man! Think it'll be a fitting victory dance.

Has anyone got a cassette recorder and tape so i can tape the Utah Saints on it. I wouldn't want to fry there brain by asking for a MP3 or even a CD player now!
