Poetry.
Someone once asked the Dalai Lama what surprises him most. This was his response:


"Man; because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived."

Team yodeling or Gregorian chants.

Failing that, any game film or highlight reel on a laptop/iPod/phone.

Arguing over who gets the XXL shorts, who filled the water bottles up last week, who drove to the last away game, why we've only got 5 balls, shooting too hard on the warm-up (never me) ........................tends to work at Rochdale anyhow :D

Huddle under an umbrella and wonder why lacrosse in this country is a winter sport.

Just before I arrive at the pitch....rack up the volume on the ipod, slap on some heavy bass, hard rock, rap songs about busting caps and wasting fools.

then use the toilet, then it's game time :D

Half a tug raise the aggression
League restructure I told you so 10/3/2011(looking good on this one)
Prem division to two leagues will result in the prem division failing and being combined with Nemla 22/3/2012
the proposed restructure to 8 teams in each prem league will only last a couple of years until it has to be restructured again due to teams dropping out. 13/12/2012

Standing on a corner at Deansgate watching the BMX oiks (carrying home a shiny new plasma tv) makes my blood boil. Clearer?
