RWC 2007 – NZ v France 1/4 Final

How could we have lost!

We met up with Thornton and some other Kiwis before the game for a few beers then headed into the Millennium Stadium, Ian & I were sitting apart from the others unfortunately surrounded by the French.  At the end of the game getting patted on the back as we walked down the stand, a fellow kiwi somewhere in the crowd yelled out “don’t let them see you cry” just what you need to make you laugh.

What a great gig!

The Foos are one of my favorite bands and to see them live was awesome, Dave Grohl put on a great performance, even Ian enjoyed it and he only went to make me happy. They played a mix of everything from the latest album to the first, and most of the classics which had me singing along without a care. After a good number of loud fast tracks a small stage dropped down from the roof into the centre of the arena and the band did a bit of an acoustic set before moving back to the main stage to finish off loud and furious.

Definitely the best gig I’ve been to in a long time.

Yeah I passed!!

After struggling to get back into the habit of studying I passed my exam today, what a relief. I can now officially add CID+ after my name, which means certified interconnect designer, what ever that means :-)
