This Week in Twitter: October 1, 2010

It hasn’t been a big Twitter week for me as I was without internet service for most of it, but $20 later and lots of calls back & forth to my neighbor across the hall has remedied that issue. I did learn my requisite One New Thing™ today, which was that New Zealand women do in fact perform the haka before their rugby matches.

Video here.

I was under the erroneous impression that the haka was a “guy thing”, or more to the point, a Maori guy thing, but the times are changing. Or have been, more to the point, and I am finally up to speed on this bit of sport trivia.

Now, if anyone asks if women do the haka, you can say, “yes they do!”
