Rugby - the Emergent Game?

Well Doug Pagitt thinks so and who am I to argue with him? There's of course much that could be called in aid of this game as a metaphor for modernism as well. The scrum for example - 2 monolithic meta-narratives battling for superiority...

Its a game for all paradigms...

Dirty Liberals

Saw this on Rhett's blog so thought it was worth a go...I'm not really surprised at the Barth reference, but I am a little at the Finney one. He did have some interesting ideas alongside some things I would have been very supportive of (pro women, anti slavery). Maybe its just that we are both ex lawyers?! I'm glad to see Augustine at the back of the field...

You scored as Karl Barth. The daddy of 20th Century theology. You perceive liberal theology to be a disaster and so you insist that the revelation of Christ, not human experience, should be the starting point for all theology.

The Faces of the Fan

It was a joyous trip to Hamiltron recently, to watch the Blues spank the Chiefs just like in the olden days...

One Chiefs fan dared travel with us - he in line of sight of these next three shots - Zoolander had Blue Steel - Jonesboy presents:
"Number 1"

This being a reminder to the said Chief's fan that the Blues are top of the table...

"The Choke"
Reminding the Chief's fan of his team's tendency to choke (as the Blues score their first try in the second half)

"Dagger to the Heart"

Celebrating the Blues second try in the second half with this classic "game over" equivalent...

What a night! Consoling texts from the Chief's fan's significant other added to the enjoyment. To be fair, the Chiefs put up a good fight, with returning players Richard Kahui and Keith Robinson adding something to the home team. But the substitution of Williams and Mealamu demonstrated why these guys are All Blacks.
