The Fear Of God


The Rugby World Cup 2007 is almost upon us and I cannot wait for it to begin. An Irish sporting team with a realistic chance of worthwhile achievement on an international stage? These truly are times to savour.

This is why I have joined the team over at The Fear Of God. The brainchild of Gerry of UnLaoised, The Fear Of God is a collaborative Irish blog concerned with Ireland's prospects in the tournament and the World Cup in general. It will hopefully be a fun and interesting forum for all those passionate about rugby.

The blog gets its name from the RTE documentary “Reaching For Glory”. Remember that team talk? The one during which Ireland’s Paul O’Connell demands of his team-mates that they put the fear of God in their opposition.

He did (see above).

Had a right "scrum"(should get a job with the sun with that sort of writing) of rugby chaps in for pre match food tonight. Good people, tip well too. Not my sport but welcome all the same....carry on...

Manuel: Carry on I shall. First I just need to rest my weary head after a weekend of doom. A hollow shell of a blogger is all that remains... Whimper.

Gerry: Don't be bashful chap :-)
