Well done to Big Fish!!!!

That’s right.

Obviously with sources starting to come up with rumours this afternoon I was left with little else to do but following these up with several long phone calls to several different people.

And the draw only occurred this evening with KSA’s help.

The winner of our Go to the Final competition was none other than our own resident black Shark, Big Fish.

Well done Big Fish and thanks okes for entering.

    Okay congrats meneer and well done

    Our buddy Mr. Fish, who now uses the nickname Son Of Gam (after our spam software decided the word Big Fish is definitely indicative of a Spammer) has sacrificed his weekend with his hot French girlfriend and will in fact fly all the way from Cape Town to join the boys in Jozi.

    What a dedicated Sharks man!

    Well done big fish!

    Then again are you not just another ‘black’ capetonian who all of a sudden gets to fly all the way up ahead of someone closer and more deserving, like me!

    I smell a fat conspiracy!

    It’s really not very nice to call Big Fish “fat”.

    Ok boys I’m leaving on Thursday night from Heathrow specifically to come to the final in Durbs. As soon as the Bulls won I had to beg the missus and promise loads of things but never the less booked my flight and manage to get a couple of tickets at last. What a mission that was (the tickets that is)!!!!

    Anyway, all I still got to do is predict the right winner for the superbru or hope that I can hold of Jotrojer and I should be the proud owner of a bok watch courtesy of the RW chaps. Not a bad way to celebrate a great Super 14. So a big cheers to all of you at RW and hopefully we’ll stumble across each other at the game for a few cold once to celebrate the Bulls victory.

    Sh1t I cant wait!!!!!! And GO BULLE!!!!!!!!!

    I would like to thank my family, my friends, my agent, and die Hemelse Vader (is that right?).

    Stan and Shields – quite right, the prize was won by a White dude, but after mentioning I have Stofile’s phone number, sanity prevailed.

    David, I have yet to break the news of my sudden winfall and departure for Jozi this weekend :shock: … If you dont hear from me today, please nominate the runner-up and pour out some liqour for me.

    Shred, wil be flying in tomorrow early morning.

    KSA send me an email and I will send you guys my SA number. I presume you got my address?

    I can say with great confidence, taking all permutations into consideration, the watch is mine Whoohooo, I say this only ‘cause I made my pick & luckily, for me, myself and Jotrojer has gone for the same team which mean will or loose the gap is 2 big 2 come down 2 bonus points. So I might just catch up with you guys afterwards for the Royal Deluxe presentation. Arrange the press to gather for RW first official press conference….. I will arrange with Sky in order to give it the international exposure you chaps deserves.

    Yis Stan

    Of course

    This is SA Rugby after all and we gotta stick with the developments.

    We’re shit scraed of Bhutana Khompela

    We had to make a black oke win.

    Why do you think the results weren’t verified by an independent auditor? So we could cook them of course!

  35. avatar DavidS says:
    May 17th, 2007 at 12:12 pm

    Stan look at it this way

    There are so many reasons for cooking the resulkts to let the black oke win

    First off Mike Stofile loves us

    Second, now we have someone to drive us, carry our luggage, go for beers while we watch rugby

    Diesn’t it make sense?

    just a bit worried if after Murph’s 9th pint he decides to reveals the twig and berries to the ladies again, DavidS thinks some okes trying it on and threatens to lamp him; Big Fish is egging on both on inbetween chirps at some oversized Bulle supporters, while KSA tries to diplomatially smoothe all over in his calm manner.

    ja, expect plenty of explaining to do to the wives when they return.

  58. avatar DavidS says:
    May 17th, 2007 at 1:38 pm

    KSA is more likely to stir with the huge Bulle
    McGam will just yack off with KSA and stir it thicker
    Murph will dangle the tools ate the wrong time
    DavidS will have to do the aple swinging in classic East Rand style to save them

  59. avatar DavidS says:
    May 17th, 2007 at 1:40 pm

    Okay here goes
    KSA starts the stir with some well placed choice remarks
    Then McGam starts going on about how the Bulle girls will like his black meat more than their white weenies
    Murph decides to prove the point with a practical illustration
    Leading into
    DavidS having to use classic East rand style argument enders to save all

  60. avatar Son of Gam says:

    That was his line too

    I’m a lurver not a fighter

    But he’d stir it lekker dik till okes wanted to bliksem and then my boet and I had to solve the problem via direct means.

    Only one night we didn’t and that was at purple turtle where the doos soeked for kak with an off duty bouncer from the same company as the bouncing company at the door

    They pulled ME, not him the fricking stirrer, out into some dark corner and threatened to fuck me up. About seven of the fuckers!!!

    Huge massive monstrous tattooed characters all steaming and ready for a rol

    Only I know when to run and when to raise the banner

    I was still an articled clerk, but I think I’ve never given a more convincing and impassioned argument than that.

    Cabbie old rollers get slower I’ll agree, but we also pack more experience and more punch as you age so while the 18 year old may land four punches before I land my one, and while my one may dislocate my shoulder, the one i land will be deadly accurate and wil dislocate his head from his body

    True about Baalies getting tough as teak as they get older. Its like they petrify or something – sinew and bone gets real hard, and even think okes are hard as hell.

    I think it might be enough to conquer the strenght and speed of the younger okes, but there is no sweetener to the getting uglier part. Sorry Dawie! :lol:
