Loffie’s Pride visits the Bullring this week.

Will the visiting kitties build on their good home victory against WP last week?

  • I muust just say thanks to CSB, Walter, Hmmm and their team for Buckling the Bulls.

    That just levels the log standings a bit. Even a BP win over the griquas will only put them one point ahead of the rest of us.

    Considering what it would have looked like had they won tonight……….. Thanks LIONS!!!!!!!!

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 31) : No, I think you are entitled to a bit of luck going your way :smile: , but like you pointed out earlier, one could have had a perfect score for the first game and the other three are scheduled for tomorrow only. So I guess one could have scored there as well. And they are normally very slow in updating scores, can you iamgine this weekend?? Maybe I am feeling grumpy because I did not score well. :mad:

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 31) : And further, the reason why I joined Sharksworld is that I went through the biggest groups on SB, became a member of your group and that way I came upon this blogg. Since then, and here I’m taking a serious chance of leaving you all with MASSIVE heads, I have seen that you guys, no matter where in the world you are( time frame wise), are really trying to keep up to date with eveything you do. So congrats!! :wink:
