Our favorite curmudgeon HARPO was back in Denver, and there was a sighting. Just stopping by on his long windy road to nowhere.... Who Cares, Who Knows, Why Bother? Southern Hemisphere - Bledisloe and The Rugby Championship After many weeks of negotiations and squabbles, Rugby Australia and the NZRU have agreed to two Bledisloe games in New Zealand, followed by a full TRC back in Australia in November (makes the quarantining a bit ... convoluted) Been a while since the Wallabies lifted the Bledisloe Cup ... (circa 2002) It will be a battle of the debutant head coaches. Dave Rennie replaces Michael Cheika and Ian Foster replaces his protegee Steve Hansen. Personally, I'm a Scott Razor Robinson fanboy and would have preferred him to have a crack at the AB's job, but we'll see what Foster can do. Big Toiiime Preshah on both coaches Maaate... 8 Nations (The Octogenations) Welcome Georgia and Fiji to the former 6 Nations! If you're riding the new wave of legal sports betting (depending on your state, but Colorado has been inundated with online ads for the new LEGAL sports books) .... bet on Fiji to hit their total point overs. They aren't known for great defense, but fuck they can score exciting tries. Will Rugby Union Street all-star Finn Russell return for Scotland after a tiff with Gregor Townsend?

And for the moderator .... Blue State McGee ... any progress of the Hong Kong 7's situation? ... Guru Out" Tommy NoPiks and Johnny Ray Hewitt agree when it comes to politics in sports "you're damned if you do, damned if you don't. Bermuda 10's Taylor Howden will be the head coach of the Ohio Aviators ... and the next Eddie Jones. You heard it here first folks...
