The curse of the Highlanders

It’s official, I will never go to another Highlanders game at Carisbrook… They had the last game yesterday, in their brand new lime green jersey/strip.

I’m quite partial to it myself – I get quite annoyed when the crowd chant OTTAAGOOO Highlanders.. When there is only one Otago boy in the team, and it is really made up of three provinces – North Otago, Otago and Southland. So green for me – yup, no big deal, get rid of that blue I say…

The problem with me going to Carisbrook home games for the Highlanders, is that – I have never been there when we have won. So yes – throw your darts, toys, footy boots etc all at me. It wasn’t the lime jersey, it wasn’t the cold, wasn’t the coach, nor the players, or the ref, and not even the touchies… Yup it’s all on me. Thankfully, the highlanders will never lose at Carisbrook again! Let’s not tempt fate – I will ensure an All Blacks win over Fiji in July, by not attending. 🙂
