Who Says White Men Can’t Jump?

I’m sure everyone has heard the addage ‘White Men Can’t Jump’.

This obviously comes from the movie of the same name, with Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson, from way back in 1992.

You see Billy it's like this, you either smoke or you get smoked. And you got smoked.

Well after this weekends Springboks v All Blacks Game in Bloem to open the Tri Nations for SA, I have to beg to differ. Matfield is a kingpin among men, to use a term I coined myself, he is a ‘Tower Of Strength’ or my other term I have just amde up, a ‘Vertible Collossus’

As Wesley Snipes Character Sidney Deane says in the movie, I don’t mean to brag… but I’m the greatest!

That certainly applies to our Vic.

I was very impressed with the performance of Victor Matfield on Saterday.

This dude brings fear to the opposition with his ability to work out lineout calls. It’s quite often you’ll hear a commentator say… “Matfield has worked out the their lineout calls”

Why? Cos he is the man. We are truly privileged to have him around and Im super thrilled to have him currently playing with Andries Bekker, his obvious heir apparent. It’s a no brainer that he will move on to coach our lineout forwards.

Cos that’s what I would have done… and I’m almost as main as him, cos I can fly.

When I’m dreaming.

Here’s a little diatribe from the movie, between Wesley Snipes Character and Billy Hoyle, played by Woody Harrelson.

Sidney Deane: Can anybody step in for this guy? Anybody? For Mr. Mofo March of Dimes?

Sidney Deane: Billy, listen to me. White men can’t jump.

Sidney Deane: I don’t mean to brag… but I’m the greatest!

Billy Hoyle: You are so stupid. It would take your mother 1, no. 2 hours to watch 60 MINUTES.

Sidney Deane: Don’t start that shit again.

Billy Hoyle: You calling me ugly?

Sidney Deane: Your mother did.
