Hug an Aussie

Seems like only 4 years ago after Beijing I was suggesting that everyone should go out an hug an Aussie to make them feel valued in the sporting world. But hats off to Victoria Pendelton on letting an Aussie finish ahead. After all its not fair that Team GB have been hogging all the gold medals.

If you know an Aussie go and offer them a hug tell them they are loved and if they want they can claim some of the credit for Team GB success after all they are part of the commonwealth. Its so bad they are trying to claim Kiwi success as their own 

Seriously Skippy, Harold Bishop, Mick Dundee your team are taking one hell of a beating image

    Yup. Stiffing the Aussies is fun. But stiffing the French is business.

  • Countries and the importance of Stuffing them: 

    Top 10 :

    Aussies tied in first with the French 

    Repeat for the other nine positions 

    Glad that they won a couple of golds todays otherwise they may want all their ex pats backs and there would be no one to serve all the pints that are getting drunk to celebrate British Gold image

It's getting silly up here. image

  • They have even lost at water polo !

  • It was good of Team GB to take a day off yesterday from winning medals to try and make things easy on the bartenders of London sorry I mean Team OZ.

    But today lets resume our winning ways  image

    Looks like the Aussie sports minister has lost the bet ... and to her credit she's taking it in good spirit.

  • image At the end of the day it's just a bit of fun and might be our turn come rio. Hope not because while we arn't exactly setting the track and field alight there are a few young'uns out there right not that look like they might be world beater's in 4 years time. Only time will tell?
