  1. @Americano: I just listened to that lady giving monotone commentary – when she said “penetration”, it send Nazi torture shivers down my spine!!!

  2. So we get to see Vic and Bakkies play their last “last” game together for the third time.

  3. @Craven:

    Not really… Bakkies replaced Vic last game… it’s strange… why not just just start them together this game for their final ever… and let Lood (weird looking guy from the Goonies) take over after 25mins?

    But anyway… how scary is that backline!!!!!!!!!!!!!
