All Blacks vs England - 2014

The All Blacks played their first test for the season tonight. I watched the live game at 7.30pm. By 9.30 I was confused so I watched it again. Felt the same at 11pm and watched it one more time.

What a lifeless game.
Did you know, 16 English players were missing tonight? They're all wrapped up in their Super 12 final, so the English team was way minus it's usual players.

Black left me depressed. They were there to play the game yes, but they were not there together to play the game. If that's an indication of the All Black season, I'm not going to be fizzing about anything All Black related this year. Who was fizzing tonight was Fekitoa. His debut tonight as All Black #1131 was the best part of the game.

There is no fire in a game when you pull your finger out in the last 3 minutes.

PS: A corporate box at McLean park is $145 per person. You get dinner and beverages we can't partake of. There is a minimum of 12 and a max of 25. Me and Mitchy make 2, come on family - we need 10 more.
Putting it in your trolley Mitchy.

I heard the game sucked.
My bro and his wife was there. They were so pumped to be there, I'm sad it sucked.

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!
