Thanks to a visitor on my other blog I learned about the Gratitude Dance.
It's super easy to do. And perfect for today. But maybe not advised after eating a big Thanksgiving dinner.
The Gratitude Dance is considerably kinder and gentler than the haka -- a traditional Polynesian dance that the Jefferson High School football team in Portland has taken up before each game.
YouTube, naturally, has many haka videos. I especially liked this one, a Hakan vs. Tongan face off at a rugby match.
That was freaking awesome.
I was just talking with a friend tonight who play intramural rugby in Portland. He said that all the islanders in the area (mostly Samoan and Tongans) got together, dumped their own rugby teams, and started their own team.
Apparently they are owning all of Portland Rugby at this point. No one can touch them. I love it.
