  • New Zealand Basketball team performs ancient warcry before facing off against the USA



    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haka

    The dance did not help NZ, they lost by almost 30 points. GG for the dance tho I guess.

    Maybe if New Zealand would have practiced more basketball and less war cry they may have had a better shot at winning.

      Doubtful. I'm surprised that it was under a 30-point margin.

        They should get some Brothas on that team.



        Not only will they win more games, but they'll probably dance better, too.

          Err Slick ? Wouldn't you be the first to jump down someone's throat if they took the p*ss out of, "The Star-spangled Banner ?" I know that someone who laughed at, 'Flower of Scotland,' wouldn't leave the stadium alive.

          The Haka is New Zealand's equivalent of a National Anthem.

            Actually, the national anthem is 'God Defend New Zealand' and 'God save the Queen' on equal footing.

              True, but on ceremonial occasions (like international sporting matches) it takes the place of the National Anthem played by other countries. Western Samoa do much the same thing.

                What, scream like a pig being slaughtered?

                Like what has already been said: more team drills.

                  If you'd said that in Aukland, they'd never find your body. Check out the New Zealand All Blacks - one of the superpowers of world Rugby.

                  Different countries have different customs, and facing a Haka isn't funny.

                    No. If the quip in question was witty as opposed to facile I might be the first to laugh.

                    Down boy, down! It was only a joke. Don't let your kilt get too tight or anything.

                    The first time I heard New Zealand's national football side called "the All-Whites," I was damn near shocked. I had to think about it for a minute or two before I realized that it a was reference to their uniforms, and not the skins wearing them.

                    It is when they loose by thirty points.

                      Apparently it is-what was the final score again?

                      Apparently squealing like a pig was appropriate before the start of that game.

                        Of course, you could always do it like this:
