Next games are at Winona N v. Likastik and Buck Fugly. We remain in Div 2. Since this is sort of a long weekend, we should be extra on top of attendance.

Next games…UBC rugby enclosure. For some reason, I think we’re going to have a real test on our hands….
We have received an offer by Holler, seconded by Buck Fugly, to play makeup games lost this week due to rain next Monday: either one full game; two mini-games; or 3 2/3rds games. All teams are scheduled for 6pm, and no games are scheduled after, so this looks very doable.
I’m quite certain this proposal will be agreeable to everyone, but I’m running it by you just in case.
And now….let’s visit Candy Mountain:

If this doesn’t put you in the mood, then nothing will.
Our next games are at Van Tech Turf – a new field in East Vancouver – vs. Likastik and Buck Fugly. Looking at the extended forecast however, it seems there is a fairly good chance of games being canceled for Monday. If that is the case, I would like to propose a team dinner at one of the following locations: The Reef (Main Street); Dix (Downtown); or The Clubhouse (2nd Ave / sushi) at around 6:30’ish.
Tags: Ingredients made from bile
For the last few weeks, I’ve been bringing an “energy drink” (Clearly Canadian) to the games and I have to say it certainly feels like it works (during the second game last Monday I felt great). I was looking at the ingredients, and at number one was a something called “taurine”. Now, many foodstuffs have mysterious and chemically dubious sounding ingredients, but this was the primary ingredient, so my curiousity was piqued. One Google search later….
That. Is. The. Awesome. I mean, beyond how would they find out drinking bile would boost your energy, here is a completely natural, if by “natural” you mean “chemically strip a naturally-occurring substance found in the internal organs of mammals down to it’s base properties“, energy boost. Turns out it’s the major component of most energy drinks, such as Red Bull, and so on. But wait…there’s more. The always reliable BBC reports:
When we drink to excess, fat builds up in the liver, causing it to swell and reducing blood flow to this organ so vital in breaking down the toxins alcohol. Even one night’s over-indulgence can cause fat to accumulate. But some studies have found that taurine not only prevents this, it can reverse it…..
“According to our study findings, it is possible that adding taurine to alcohol during drinking could help to minimise liver damage and ward off a hangover”
Now, you forgive me if I’m beginning to think there is nothing taurine can’t do. Taurine, I’ve been looking for you ALL MY LIFE!! I will be like Taurus: Strong, like bull.

“Scientists probe giant squid sex secrets” – a report that investigates the propagation techniques of Architeuthis, who is apparently more saucy than we realized….
He says the reproductive habits of giant squids are particularly interesting and will be the focus of much study.
“[We will look at] whether it has been mated or not. Whether it is a male or female.
“Giants have very strange sexual behaviour where the male has a metre-long muscular penis that he uses a bit like a nail gun and shoots cords of sperm under the skin of the female’s arms and she carries the sperm around with her until she is ready to lay her big jelly mass of a million eggs.
“[We want to find out[ whether they gather somewhere together to mass-breed.
Take that, Marquis de Sade!
