Misc Thursday sniplets

Remember that duo called "Peaches & Herb" who had a big hit in the eighties with Reunited (And It Feels So Good)? Well I just found out that over the career of the duo (1967-present) there have been five different "Peaches". Kind of like Skippy and Lassie, but with huge sunglasses and electric drums.

Today's definition: pragmatism. The people who design, manufacture and sell Hawthorn Football Club sportswear these days, and the people who wear it. The club colours are brown and gold (see guernsey left). Caving in to popular taste, the merch is now appearing predominantly in navy blue (see official 2008 premiership polo shirt right). Pragmatism. Or possibly despicable craven cash-driven TREASON. I'm not sure.
