The Male Attitude To Rugby…


Koos Kombuis saved the day
by explaining the male psyche
regarding rugby: at six minute
intervals his thoughts return to
rugby, when watching, nothing
is allowed to disturb him, everything
centres on rugby, it’s a hallowed
and holy activity - far beyond the
confines of common existence;
thank heaven the Springboks won
on Saturday – please make the
bickering on racist quotas stop;
otherwise he’ll go on strike and
start thinking of love every six
minutes – Liefling - and THAT
would be a real tragedy!

Koos Kombuis’ articles in the Sunday Newspaper is a life-saver, he comes up with the funniest observations and ideas and gives one such insight into the caveman psyche of the average male – at least as seen through Koos’ eyes… Current joke – professor meets guy with IQ of 130 and they discuss Einstein’s relativity, meets guy with IQ of 80 and they discuss women; meets guy with IQ of 30 and they discuss the Blue Bulls! Poor rugby fans are really run down at the moment, but they WILL autocratically monopolize the TV.

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
