The Currie Cup Final!
« on: October 29, 2007, 06:56:03 AM »
Well, we got back from an awesome final in Bloemfontein, it's funny how you always bash in other Oranjemunders at these things, for those who remember Kake and Glenda Goosen, they sat 20 seats away from us...... And besides winning, We got to meet Joel Stransky.....

totally worn out, shouting
'..holy sh*t ..what a ride!

We had a spare ticket at the last moment, and decided to phone you to come through to join us, but then we realised that Joburg is only 4 hrs from Bloem and Durbs was 5, so we phoned Riaan instead....


Besides you were more than likely watching the fashion channel again, instead of the rugger!

Mr Leader of the tourgroup up the Orange - when are we going to get a report of your trip to Blommetjiesfontein? 

I see you actually managed to get Adriaan into a Cheetah jersey!!  No matter if it was at gun point - it was worth it!

We await the logistical feedback in anticipation with loads of photo inserts and the needed text inscriptions to inform us properly!

What a weekend that was!!  Somehow I stained my brand new Cheetahs jersey and can't get it clean.  Oh well...  I guess I'll never wear that again.  Back to the Sharks jersey.

4 hours drive to see my buddies again?  Will do it anytime.  The rugby was just a bonus.

You are not allowed to lie on this forum!     :buffo9:


So, what you gonna wear to next year's final  (heard mos a birdie tweet that you've booked a place for yourself on the middle line --  on the field!)  For sure not that Shark Jersey you mention?  They are so    :8_1_220[1]:
