» Spoooky Coincidence

Running of the Bulls
So one of my mates travels to Spain for the said event and does the now infamous "Harry Bolt" in front of the Bulls.

The mate he was travelling with runs with him and they have a jolly good time. With both of them running no one was able to get a pic of their daring deeds. So instead go and purchase a post card. The picture is of a man running full pelt in front of the marauding bulls.

My mate sends it home to his Father saying "oooh look what I got up to!!". On his arrival back in London the phone rings. Its his Dad.

I imagine the convo went like this:
"Hi Dad"
"Hi Son"
"Did ya get the post card?"
"Yeah, Funny thing about that."
"Whats that?"
"You know who's on that postcard?"
"Your Uncle Barry, when he ran the guantlet back in the 80's"
"Jesus" *faint*

» Airport Stories

"Nobody's" Perfect
I was on a business trip to Townsville (North Queensland, Australia) and had a few hours stop over in Brisbane airport. Seeing as though I was greatly important to the airline I was allowed into business lounge.

I am a huuuuuuggggeee rugby fan, and so I was reading the autobiography of a one John Eales (ex-Wallabies Captain).

I was totally imersed in the book when I felt a tap on the shoulder.
"Good book?" the bloke asks.

I look up only to see the great man himself. Composing myself I reply.
"Nah shit - seems to drag on with no purpose."
(But really its a good read).

He laughed heartily. Got me a beer and we talked for an hour before he had to catch his flight to Sydney.

Nice fella. He even signed my copy.

» I hurt my rude bits

Rugby Pain
Playing rugby your man bits are in positions that sometimes they shouldnt be.

One game we have our opposition pinned down in there 20 awaiting a scrum they are feeding to produce the ball. Out it comes to the fly half, he receives it and I chase him down putting the pressure on the kick.

I see the guy put boot to ball so I jump to block the kick. The only problem was that I stopped the flight of the ball with my goat dilly bag.
Queue pain and much woah.

I was sidelined for 2 weeks by the medico but in my wisdom I was back at training the next Tuesday.

So there I am telling my coach what happened and how I might have to take it easy tonight.

Just then the familiar call of "HEADS" is shouted out(basically a call put out to warn unsuspecting people that a ball travelling at quite a speed is headed their way).
I turn around and cop it sweet in the ball-sack.

I was out for a total of 4 weeks with bruised testies.
ooh ouch.

» Mugged

My mate Dan is a fit (as in aerobicly) guy. He plays rugby, runs marathons this sort of thing.

Anyway in Leceister Square a few weeks ago he was using(texting) his mobile phone while eating a dodgy kebab.

Out of nowhere a bloke runs up and grabs the phone out of Dans hands and legs it. Dan pursues the mugger a few blocks and rugby tackles him to the ground.

After a few sweft punches, Dan has this low breed up against the wall - when a member of the police force walks by.

Noticing the commotion the situation is calmed and stories exchanged. Mugger is searched the copper finds no less than 6 phones on him. Hands back Dans and arrests the mongrel.

Dans new nickname is Batman.

» Ignoring Instructions

Blown Away
One very hot summer I went out and bought a upright fan for my bedroom (that needed some construction). Being a blokey kind of bloke first thing I did was throw the instructions in the bin.

When finished I noticed that in my hand I had 3 screws and some type of spring.

The fan worked fine keeping me cool while sleeping. Im still complexed by the fact that I had left over bits and where they were actually meant to go.
