The first thing I'd do as coach of the Black Caps is to change their stupid name.

I would then sign on to do the same as coach of the Black Sticks, the All Whites, the Tall Blacks and pretty much every other sporting team we've tried to touch with that All Blacks branding.

Briefly, in 2004, our national badminton team was known as the Black Cocks.

I'm not kidding.

Default it's true

NZ finds Black Cocks hard to swallow Chinese not too keen, either

By Lester Haines, 15 Sep 2005

It was a bloody silly idea in the first place, but New Zealand's badminton world may finally have to concede that calling the national team the "Black Cocks" really is a bit too strong, the New Zealand Herald reports.

Badminton New Zealand adopted the name a year ago as "a gimmicky label to attract sponsors and fans". It worked to a degree, because the organisation was quickly innundated with cash offers from companies such as - you guessed it -condom manufacturers.

Furthermore, Badminton NZ prez Nigel Skelt confirmed: "At the recent New Zealand Open, crowds were yelling out 'c'mon the Black Cocks'. Whether the team actually adopt the name officially, they're already known as the Black Cocks."

That's as may be, but the International Badminton Federation (IBF) has decided not to take the Black Cocks lying down. Skelt admitted: "They don't want to see the game lose its composure for the want of a gimmicky name. If you're over in China and you get introduced as the Black Cocks, it raises some issues."

Ah yes, the sticky "we'd rather not entertain Black Cocks in the People's Republic of China" problem. Badminton NZ will now wait for feedback from its 27 regional associations at its November AGM before deciding on whether or not to let the Black Cocks stand.

How did someone not stop them?

Then again the Washington Redskins are a thing....but Black Cocks is definitely doubly bad (and a tiny bit hilarious).

I'm the reverse; I get depressed very easily during the summer months and feel my best during the long winter months. But I really prefer autumn (especially *right* now).

Good luck. I think it's diphtheria and polio and stuff at that age. . I hope she sleeps better tonight.

I'm hoping our visas come through tomorrow. If they do, it's three more sleeps until we go to Beijing.

wow sounds fun!

she never sleeps longer than like 4 or 5 hours but she did that last night and i feel a lot better. some nights she still gets up every hour like clockwork and that shit kills me. i'm not sure what shots she's getting, probably Dtap and her second Hep B, at least. Excited to see what she measures and weighs, I think there's been a growth spurt!
