NZ Breakers

10 boys from our school were very lucky to go over North Harbour to the breakers training court yesterday.

Just as we drove through we were all excited and we jumped off, we walk in and we thought it was only going to be our school there. Suddenly there were three other schools, Glen taylor, Glen Innes and St Kents. We watched them play and train for 1 hour and boy oh boy they were good. During the game this guy called Akil Mitchell  kept dunking everywhere. After watching them train hard and putting the effort in we played some games and we play this game called knockout with Alex Pledger and Jordan Ngatai. After that we went around in our schools to get our basketballs sign. We finally played be ourselves and had fun with our school mates.

Drumline is not my favourite movie but the last scene was awesome.

I loved how they had a drum off and Morris Brown’s team went head to head with A&T, Morris Brown was the defining champions until A&T beat them in 2002. The last scene is my favourite because when they were battling the beats were sick and there was this guy called Devon miles( Nick Cannon) who was fabulous, his hands look were like the speed of the flash legs. The sound of the drums were spectacular and it motivated me to play the drums after watching it.

US election: Betting favours Hillary

Image result for hillary clintonThe betting markets are strongly backing Hillary Clinton to win the US Presidential election. But have they got it right, or is this going to be a repeat of the Brexit decision? The UK's Betfair says Hillary Clinton is now trading at an 83 percent chance of winning. Betfair says 110 million pounds (NZ$186 million) has now been traded on the race. It looks a very good chance that total betting will exceed the 127 million pounds (NZ$215 million) bet on the Brexit market in June.

Image result for All blacks vs Ireland

A week in Rome sounds like fun, but you can bet Ben Smith and those All Blacks, who took a rare hit to their pride in Chicago, will be itching get to Ireland. While Irish publicans are probably still rolling barrels of the good stuff into their cellars to keep supporters happy, the All blacks, having a disappointment of being unable to add to their record 18 test victories, must now keep their heads down and ensure the burning sensation that follows a rare defeat isn't detrimental to their tour. All blacks lost to Ireland 40-29, Ireland was to good and they deserved to win.

Image result for fireworks
Whakatane will have a public fireworks show this year - the first since 2009, when 40 minutes worth of bangers exploded in about 40 seconds. Thousand of dollars worth of fireworks went off at once in the fiery mishap, lighting up the Bay of Plenty sky, but also causing a lot of danger and scrub fire. Sadly two people were taken to hospital with major injuries after the accident. The November 12 Sky Show, two years in the making, will take place at Rugby Park.
