Its all in the methodology

I gather that there is a sea-creature picking world soccer cup winners (sorry, maybe it's called Football where you are...).

So, tonight our All Black's were playing the South African Spring Boks. Normally I just don my blinkers and back the AB's but today I was thinking where's the fun in that? Even if I'm right, where's the fun?

So, I threw caution to the wind and offered my rabbits a carrot (for the AB's to win) and a piece of Biltong (for the 'Boks to win)....guess what! Rabbit chose the carrot and the AB's won. Convincingly too.

How clever is that? Maybe I should ask them about the Soccer results...but then again, I've already consulted my cats Ernie and Lynx...I suspect they are backing Spain given that their only comment was "Raoul" when pressed for a guess!

Quick, quick can you get the rabbits to do the football (it's always football, never soccer!!) so that I can rush off and put on a bet!
Hope you're OK my honey - I have been thinking of you, even though I haven't commented for a while xx

Are they any good at picking lottery numbers?

The psychic power of pets, frightening how they can be so Spot on!

I'd go to an All Blacks game just to see them do their war dance.

Oops, it's called soccer here. I just avoid sports all together thus relieving me of any faux pas!

Congrats on the new camera. I love my 24x zoom though I don't use it as much anymore. It's so old it only shoots 8 megapixels. Not having change lenses was so awesome!

There have been messages towards this sea creature, telling him not nice things, as he "lives" in Germany, it was indeed of great suprise even for me, to see, that Germans can be of so much fun.
Well, strangly, until tonight he was indeed right. However listening to three semester of statiscits, am still not convinced.
Concratulations upon the win. Please have a nice Sunday.

I keep hearing that there is something going on these days concerning soccer, or football, or whatever, but I still haven't figured out what it is... my loss no doubt... Now, if you could only get your rabbits to give you the winning lottery numbers, then we could get on with the serious business of opening a fun hotel and bar... !

We used to have the News Bunny over here.

Selina-it's been a tough month.

Steve-I wish.

Louciao-The haka is almost the best part of the game isn't it!

Stickup Artist- I think we call it soccer here as we were influenced by USA in the early days. Am having fun with the new camera!

Robert-my cats are quite clever eh?

Owen-great idea, am keen to get that pub started...

Violet-I'm not a great fan of Biltong, fed it to the cats! :-)

I'm not sure what biltong is, but it looks horrible. I think they made the right decision.
