February 2011, Japanese Whalers at the 7s?
Same old Sevens (one of 5 tournament stops for 7s rugby each year, Welly is the most extreme with lots of costumes (guessing about 15,000 people)). Everyone dresses up, everyone goes crazy, but not everyone survives!
But first while Phil and I were shopping for costume gear we saw the WWE Heavy Weight Champion of the World, Rico Costa. What's he doing shopping at the Warehouse.
Japanese Whalers / Sushi Chefs; Fook Mi and Fook Yu and a Dolphin
Stop in at a bar on the way to the stadium. Not only do I look Japanese, but I found cupcakes too! BTW I don't recommend going with blood all over as people tend to stay away from getting sticky.
Shots of the Sevens at the stadium...
Scrabble pieces, great!
The usual drunk Whaler/Sushi Chef and random white dude dressed like a women trying to hear his wife on his cell phone scene.
Best costume. Every year these guys nail it! Last year functioning traffic lights and this year... awesome!
Nice Bike = Sore ASS! For some reason I thought the 8hour ride from Welly to Auckland would be comfortable on my new crock rocket (CBR 600 pure sport bike). Although it is amazing in the corners and has great power for it's size my ass and knees did not enjoy the long ride as much as the VFR rides. To be fair to the little guy my butt still hurts on an 8 hour trip using the VFR too.
Back home in Auckland with the Bandit.
