So the Sevens are on this weekend in Wellington.

 

Once I would have been all over this.  Considered taking the kids to the family zone.

 

 

 

Is anyone else going/been in recent times?

 

 

 

Weather looks average at best.

 

 

 

What TV channel has the rights this year? 

 

Prime TV website is broken as usual, and can't see it on TV1/2

 

Maybe should have purchased that 2 week Fanpass offering from last week lol.

Unlike past years its hard to even notice that its on.

 

I personally think it's just a slow death and they should just put it out of its misery. 





When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

It's not about the rugby, it's never been about the rugby, it's all about the costumes and the pissup.

 

They took all the fun out of it when they started cracking down on the partying, being nazis about the drinking and banning mankinis and other costumes. Now Auckland has the nines, which still has the party atmosphere I think the Wellington 7's are doomed.





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Perhaps Dick Smith should have taken over the sponsorship...

Why? its just like any other weekend. Its not like there will be crowds judging by the ticket sales.
