Not only Clark, but Hubbard jinxed the All Blacks too!!!

We all know The Dick jinxed the America's Cup by saying on One News on 24 June.:

[quote]Dick Hubbard: "I've seen the boat, I've touched the bulb, I've held my hand on the wheel, I've looked in Grant Dalton's eyes. Yep we'll get it."[/quote]
What's more under such headlines as "Hubbard already planning revamp for hosting America's Cup" (New Zealand Herald, 8 June) the mayor waxed lyrical about the redevelopment of Queens Wharf as a potential base for the next series. In the council's weekly newsletter he boldly declared "we're ready to host the next America's Cup in Auckland" (City Scene, 19 June).

Then he then took it upon himself to fly to Valencia in the last days of the competition to ‘cheer on' Team New Zealand, may have sealed their fate. Team NZ promptly sank without trace after he and Clark turned up.

At the time we all gave him shit but doesn't seemed to have learned.

Apparently "The Dick" was talking up a tickertape parade on TV3 in an interview they had with him at half time during the French test, which was broadcast on Sunday night. Clark of course was there sneering and mumbling her way through the national anthem.

Clearly the two of them should not show their ugly mugs at the Netball World Cup or we'll be doomed at that as well.
