go ireland

As everyone who knows me knows I'm no Sports Head. But today Ireland played trashed England in the Six Nations at Croke Park. The score: 43-13!

You can watch the news stories about the Match here. It is a shame that both the BBC and RTÉ aren't streaming the live match to people outside Ireland and the UK. There are no pubs showing the match here in Whistler. Not even the worst Irish Pub in the World! Bastards!

This is the second Rugby match to be held at Croke Park. RTÉ did a nice programme on the opening of the GAA Stadium.

This specially commissioned half-hour programme celebrates the moment when Ireland unites in sport as the Irish rugby and soccer teams play in Croke Park for the first time.

Watch it here.

yahoo pipes

So I was wondering how I could link all the blog posts (or the few that I do get around to do) that I write for Geared Up Blog on my own Blog.

After much thinking and pondering I gave Yahoo Pipes a whirl. Basically, it allows you to create a custom feeds. I took the Geared Up Blogs Feed and just added a Filter. This custom feed only spits out a post that contains WHISTLER, BC (what my posts all begin with this) and I was able to add the feed to the side of my site.

Thus you can now see all my posts by looking on the right! I'm a genius!

tubing in whistler

I went tubing a few days ago. I took a video of it and uploaded it to both YouTube and Google Video. It was the exact same video uploaded to both, but as you can see, the Google Video version of the clip rendered a lot better than the YouTube one.
