Whatever | Nov 17, 2003 10:45

Rob O'Neill live in Sydney

The Girlie thinks I'm gay. I was explaining something to her, can't remember what. She'd asked a question and I was explaining to her. I was lying on the couch, as usual, and she was in the chair next to our wrecked coffee table, but more on that later...

PUBLIC ADDRESS 14/11/03 - Unleash Hell

Unleash Hell | Nov 14, 2003 11:50

Russell Brown's Hard News

Yes, the All Blacks are better right across the park than the Wallabies, but I am more nervous now than I would expect to be facing next week's World Cup final.
