Congratulations to one of our oldest and (sometimes) dearest posters, klempie, on attaining the rank of Team Captain here on Sharksworld!

Our resident cricket expert, Sharks cynic and stirrer of note has just gone past 50 000 points and shares the unique distinction, along with McLovin, of getting there on comments alone, having made over 9 000 of them since joining the site on 20 June 2008.

Congrats, Klemps! It’s an illustrious club you’re joining and we are truly lucky to have you here. Thanks for your support and keep being yourself… only maybe a little less so, sometimes! 🙂

  • Ladies (that includes Wes, Morras, Claytie, McLovin and Vinnie) and Gentlemen,

    On this momentous day, after years of commitment and dedication to honing my skills, I am finally elevated to Sharksworld Team Captain.

    I would like to take this moment to show my gratitude to my friends, family and fellow bloggers for their unwavering love and support (that, by inference, excludes you Rob).

    Mine has been a career fraught with controversy. Many times, I have fallen foul of this organisation’s administrators; a draconian bunch who, at every turn, attempt to subvert the constitution which they themselves devised. At Sharksworld the Rules are for the many, and not for the ruling few; a proudly South African institution.

    I joined Sharksworld as a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed 28 year old, eager to take on the world. Now on the wrong side of 30, I’ve had many setbacks and learnt a number of hard lessons, most notably that rugby websites are no place to pick up chicks. To say I’ve become a little jaded would not fully convey how disillusioned I’ve become.

    But Sharks supporters are renowned for their ability to soldier on in the face of inexplicable disappointment…and so must I. I will continue my stint in my unofficial position as Sharksworld Commentator Extraordinaire. My hope is that KSA Shark, who’s become a bit of a Murray Walker on Sharksworld if I’m honest, will bow out gracefully so that Richard Ferguson can join me to form a formidable double act.

    In terms of my legacy, I’d like to think that I am the ultimate example of perseverance, given my 50000 points without a single post. But alas, I must concede that McLovin towers as a colossus, head and shoulders above me, in proving that talking shit can get you very far in life. I salute you sir.

    On a personal note, I hope that my slim physique has inspired Pensie to get on the treadmill and turn it on once in a while.

    Well, it’s been an emotional week for me with the Sharks once again prevailing over the Brokeback Mountaineers, and reaching this wonderful milestone. I can hardly contain my joy.

    Once again, thanks to all who have supported me. This is as much your celebration as it is mine.

    Good night and good luck.

  • Hello Klempie. Not having been here very long, I want to say a big well done. From where I stand, yours is a monumental achievement. You are now one of the biggest sharks in what is a fast growing pond. Your humor is appreciated, and like most posters here, you more often than not offer something for someone like myself to learn from. Thanks.
