The Beat On The Street

Saw lots of 9/11 specials on the tube all week and yesterday. God bless everyone who died, survived, and sacrificed their time helping out before and after this trajedy. I'm damn proud to be an American!!

The NFL was on yesterday, but I watched the US vs Ireland Rugby World Cup match. What a great sport and these guys make NFL players look silly. Most of my mates on the cricket team I played for  also played Rugby, so I know how tough and fearless you need to be to play rugby. I think in my younger days, I would have been a decent Rugby player but... I still have all my teeth and the legs have avoided serious injury so far, so propably just as well. AND  BELOVED NOTRE DAME LOST TO MICHIGAN, They officially SUCK!

- Glenna is back in action with a couple of well done reviews, including Declan Burke's Absolute Zero Cool HERE

  1. I love your recaps of what's going on in the blogosphere, Sean. I'm happy to see Glenna up and running again too, and I think John's project sounds very, very interesting.

  2. Thanks Seana. Sanda Seamans' blog is prob my fav for getting the scoop on what is happening. She does a great job with that. Also Enjoy Glenna's blog. Some mighty good folks out there, including John K.

  3. Glad to know you enjoy Rugby! If you're ever over here I can give you a guided tour - I live in Rugby, the home of the game! ;-p
