Jim Beam takes the Swans night-clubbing

Posted by Vietnam Swans on July 23, 2007

With just two days before leaving Vietnam for the Asian Champs, Jim Beam and the Swans went out to HCMC’s “4 in 1″ nightclub to do a cross promotion.

The Swans were excited to be with the Swanettes again and to see our JB/Swans posters on the walls. For sure we would be the stars of the show.

But then, Vietnam’s hottest woman appeared and we were in danger of being upstaged. This woman was so hot, she was on fire. Literally. At one stage she began to eat some naked flame before inviting someone from the crowd to go down on her and light a cigarette in her mouth! Seriously unheard of.

However, once the freak show had finished, it was time to get back to the freak sport’s fund raiser. The MC called out the winning ticket and the Swans Prez, Phil Johns, handed over the Mega Jim Beam.

The winner had a huge smile on the dial. And in the words of Bill Lawry, “Why wouldn’t he be smiling?”

Citing audio difficulties, we’re not sure exactly what the winner was saying or thinking but we strongly suspect he thought it was “Just the Best”.

The Unofficial Scores from the Champs

Posted by Vietnam Swans on July 23, 2007

The Boz has posted a comment with what he says are the final scores for each of the Swans matches.

(The Organising Committee over in Thailand is still to forward the Official Scores from each of the matches that were played on the day.)

The Vietnam Scores according to the Boz:

1. Vietnam Vs China: 3pts – 27pts

2. Vietnam Vs Jakarta: 28pts – 45pts (Boz says this one may not be exactly correct but will be very close)

3. Vietnam Vs Bali: 19pts – 29pts

4. Vietnam Vs Thailand: 15pts – 28pts

Thanks Boz.

Newy backs the Swans

Posted by Vietnam Swans on July 23, 2007

Newy plays against the Swans at his own peril

Self confessed international football slut, Chris “Newy” Newport, who loves to play for anyone playing against the Swans (he’s played for the Thailand Tigers and Jakarta Bintangs against us), has written to us to say, “Well done on a successful tour by the Swans. The Swans have a great bunch of guys who will succeed in future years and I personally hope that you get the guernsey for the 2008 Champs”.

Newy goes on to add, “Great to see you guys and and I will be sure to drop into your local when I am next in Vietnam”.

Newy (who, incidentally, is pictured above getting a pasting!) is a top man and is always very welcome in Vietnam both on and off the field. We also gratefully acknowledge his confidence that we could host the Asian Champs next year.

But meanwhile, the Bali Geckos have actually floated an idea that in light of Bangkok’s central location and affordable living, it would make an ideal, permanent venue for the Champs. Hong Kong has concurred.

The beauty about footy is that it’s never over.

Stop Press: Tim Hakfoort, President of the Jakarta Bintangs has just sent an email saying “Well done to the UAE and Vietnam for joining the comp”.
