Crusaders vs Highlanders.

I missed the game on Saturday, so I watched it the next night on MySky (Tivo).
If ever there was a game to watch in all of this super rugby season, this was it. A perfect example of New Zealand rugby and the skill, from both sides, was constant. It was breathtaking. For real. The Highlanders were volatile but, even after they sinbinned McCaw, Crusaders owned despite the Highlanders lead at half time.

It was the last minute that was the heart stopper. With a score of 30-32 to the Crusaders, the Highlanders were in posession and Osbourne ran the ball into the corner post only to be stopped by Dagg and the ball synchronously touched the try line and goal line.
No try.

Tyler and I argued for the 5 minutes the TMO replayed it.
She said try, I knew it wasn't.

More play like this would be appreciated.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
