Fridays and Saturdays – Just the Best

Posted by Vietnam Swans on June 28, 2007

They talk about the good, the bad and the ugly. With the Jim Beam Swanettes, we’ve certainly seen the beautifully good. In the side photo, are Jim Beam’s Andy Wall (a Swannie from Singas) and Thien (who makes it all happen here in Vietnam). Both are awesome but could represent the other side.

By JB’s high standards, both do appear to have been hit a couple of times with the ugly stick.

But that needn’t concern us for long. You see, the beauty is that the Jim Beam Swanettes will return on Friday night to Saigon’s Cafe Latin (the Office) from soon after 7pm. They will be selling raffle tickets for another 4.5 litre mega JB bottle which will be drawn at 10pm. On Saturday, JB Swanettes will reappear at 4pm for the Saturday night raffle.

Last week when Kerry from Australia and Casper from Holland won, some in the crowd commented that they didn’t see the winners.

Given everyone loves to see a winner on parade, that’s exactly what will happen this week. If you win, you will do the Walk of Fame. You will wear your new Swans hat and will be paraded around the Ground Floor and 1st Floor by the two JB Swanettes, with your JB booty in tow.

Maaaaate, this weekend will be Just the Best!

During the week, the Swans IT Guru, , took advantage of Micky J flying to Australia where he could use his credit card to purchase a new domain name. (Mick will fly on or off the field to help his beloved Swans).

Rather than clunk around with the cumbersome for the blog, we have replaced it with the sleek, aerodynamically designed new name of

This is the domain name that will appear on our official tour T shirt for the Champs (77 sold in advance already. Sample shirt may even be ready on Friday. It will immediately be unveiled on this blog. What a scorching scoop that would be!).
