Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28

Hmmmm, if my history serves me correctly, weren't a lot of Aussies descended from Irish men who were sent there by the British to be slaves and to be punished for petty crimes??

Anyway, the Irish play many sports too!!
Gaelic Football!!

Hurling with proper wooden sticks!!

And of course, we all know Ronan O'Gara of Irish Rugby

just saying Irland is still pretty damn manly in the sports department!! And hardly any protection gear, least, no shin-guards to be seen on the hurlers!! Though i do fail to see what's manly bout putting ice with drinks in a ruck, innovative yes, but manly??

If becoming enlightened or intellectual means I must become arrogant and coldly cynical about the world around me, then I'd gladly remain a fool for the rest of my life.
