Photos and Art of Wildlife Love, Innovation and Fear

Hi, it’s Baron Wolfman, advanced apprentice in the Art department of the Greenygrey. Andy Wolfhol is still enconsed in the Werehouse, so I moseyed over to the eMORFES website to hunt down some greenygrey images for this artsy fartsy blog. And what a varied bunch of greenygrey images I found!

Love Almost Overshadows the Greenygrey

Marino Cano spent three years photographing wildlife, which sounds like fun; especially when you capture animals enjoying their down time. In this monkey business photo I could hardly see the greenygrey for all the love and inquisitiveness on display:

Can you spot the greenygrey in this moochy smoochy horsing around giraffe photo:

If you haven’t found it yet, it’s on the giraffes‘ heads and background.

Not being gobby, but this looks a great way to create greenygrey in the Gobi:

Match of the Day 2 Before Match of the Day Extra

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Are you ready for the second-half of the Crows v Redbacks AusRuIcket game. Well, better get settled, because it’s kicking off soon.

Funnily enough, you know how there wasn’t a Match of the Day highlights programme on the weekend because of the F.A. Cup games cancelling out the English Premier League fixtures; well, there is one tonight, as there’s a full midweek EPL fixture list. So this is the Oz Match of the Day before the traditional Match of the Day.

Anyway, that’s enough of the pre-match discussion, on with the game:

44.  SECOND-HALF OF THE GAME IS NOT THE SAME…OR LAME 

The whistle blew to start the half,
our attack was higher than any Redback giraffe.
A new urgency. Down the wing, on the wing;
you should have heard the Crow llamas sing:
We love Crows, We love Crows. Because,
we flew on a Mexican wave from Andes to Oz.

Russell Crow put in a perfectly flighted cross, Sheryl Crow knocked it down for me on a sixpence, and I slotted it in. It was a dream start to the second half, and we were back on track. There was no time to crow about it though; we had a game to win.

Twenty minutes later, Bob Crow pulled another one back with a short snap strike, leaving the Redbacks defence red-faced as well as red-backed.

Crows were back in the game, but it’s a funny old name

But just as everything looked hunky dory
Ted Hughes Crow had to go off with poetry
Jim Crow divided the team like a tidal wave
Brandon Lee Crow tragically sent to early grave
and Charlie Crow had to fly off to trade.

We were now two players short, so I had a word with Bob, and he called a time-out. I rushed over to Elle and Bonzo, who were already on the edge of their seats.

I quickly taught them the skills of shapeshifting, and they got the hang of it in no time. Elle Crow and Bonzo Crow joined the fray without delay.

Bonzo made his presence known in no time, with some crunching tackles in the middle of the park that were reminiscent of Blackport’s Nipper Lawrence in his prime. 

It was from one of those that he won the ball, and then proceeded to dribble it past and through more legs than I could count, before slotting it straight under Redglove’s outstretched leg for our equaliser.

A Thrilling Finish to the Game

It was 3-3 with ten minutes remaining, and everything to play for. Our timewager didn’t include extra-time, so it was vital we found a winner before the end of rhyme.

But the Redbacks attacked straight from the kick-off, and moved the ball about so silkily that it looked as if it was stuck to their feet on a sticky web. They were soon inside our penalty area and threatening to score a winner of their own.

However, our goalie, Crow Nation, flew up to the top corner and not only saved the shot but also gathered it in its outstretched wing. It quickly threw the ball the length of the field.

Elle was upfield and onto it like a natural bird. She reached the ball before the Redback full-back and sent it flying over the stranded Redglove to put us in the lead. It was a great use of her bird body, and the Crows fans flew into a state of euphoria.

There was hardly time to restart the game, and the final whistle gave us the Crows victory we needed.

First-Half Analysis for Match of the Day in Oz

Hi, it’s G.G. Howling, literary correspondent at the Greenygrey, with analysis of the first-half of the Crows v Redbacks game.

Wow, wasn’t it a thrilling first half. Almost as thrilling as yesterday’s F.A. Cup games, with Leeds beating Spurs, Oldham beating Liverpool and Brentford drawing with Chelsea on a weekend when the magic of the cup seemed to materialise again.

Redback Magic Downs Crows

There was plenty of magic for the Redbacks too, as they scurried into a 3-0 half-time lead. This was of course bad news for the Crows and our travelling trio, as Grey, Elle and Bonzo need a Crows win to escape the tumult following the timequake that sent them tumbling as they travelled into  Oz’s Adelaide, South Australia.

The travelling trio’s troubles seemed destined to me from the first headline and paragraph of the episode, which seem to have been created simply to have a rhyme for ‘First half is a laugh…’

This failure to take the Redback threat seriously seemed to materialise in the second paragraph, when the Crows failed to counter the need for names with a red connection to create laughs for the first half.

Therefore, three goals were quickly scored by the Redbacks without reply.  Red-grave buried the first; the second went in with a roar by Red-din; and finally Red-burn fanned the flames of defeat for the Crows with third.

Game of Two Halves

Much-needed hope was given to the Crow cause at half-time, when the travelling trio remembered their sporting tactics and terminology.

Bonzo thought of playing the ball in the air instead of on the ground, those two well-known opposite tactical styles; and Grey soon went from feeling sick as a parrot to being over the moon; probably the two most famous football post-match interview cliches (and feeling over the moon is even better for a werewolf than a sportsperson!).

Looks like it’s going to be an interesting second-half, with kick-off here scheduled for Wednesday
