    Commonwealth Games Thread

    Well, I'm going. Athletics, methinks. Folks have tickets to the gymnastics as well, but don't think I'll go.

    Worst part of the two weeks? Definently that Mark Nicholas is doing some hosting. Urgh.

    Big controversy over here about "God Save the Queen" not being played at the Opening Ceremony. Because the queen will actually be here and stuff.

    Should be playing it, IMO.

    Also, the accommodation at the athletes' village doesn't have air conditioning. How dumb is that?

    Hehe.

    **** the queen.


    I, for one, want to repeatedly hit anybody I see singing that ****ing song (or infact saying anything positive about the royal family) with a large blunt object (anything will do) until they aren't physically able to glorify that rich, inbred fart any more.

    I hope that the Norfolk Island bowls team can take home another medal, and all the small islands get a little glory.

    Justin Madden himself came up to me, begging me to accept VIP tickets to the swimming & athletic finals. That's how low interest levels are

    Send Mark Nicholas and the Queen to Canada. That will make everything alright.

    Yeah, with Madden at the helm, Im sure everything will go like clock-work.

    Mind you, he's probably got Bracks covered!

    You can be assured that Madden would palm off all the work.

    Could ruck tap.

    Both good blokes, though.

    ...and both probably still wondering when the Americans are arriving.
