OK, here's the Straight Irish Truth....just as we gave the bagpipes to the Scots and they never got the joke, the Welsh never got the Purring joke. Welsh are tough people (great national epic too) not the sharpest knives in the drawer though. They also steal you women!

I'd hate to see the ballgrab in that sport.

I tried shin kicking with my son. He did not enjoy it. Said that me wearing steel toed boots was cheating.
