    WOW ! Just WOW !!

    How out of touch are Americans with the rest of the world. Let's take something of cultural significance and include it as entertainment because it looks tough and cool ???

    As a resident Kiwi here I have one word. Disgraceful.

    First of all, if you are going to do it then at least get it right. Rushed, mis-pronounced, lack of energy. This looks like some shit drunk america frat bros saw an All Blacks game on TV late at night and thought it would be hilarous to try and copy. If you are going to do this in a public stage on national tv, at least have the respect for what it is and do it correctly. Fly a Kapahaka (what the haka is) teacher out to teach the players about what it means. Get them to do it correctly and with the correct words. Teach them about the significance and what they are actually saying and doing so they respect what the haka means when they do it.

    Or better yet, do a Hawaiian haka because the people in Hawaii are part of the United States rather than the Maori Haka because the people in New Zealand are not a part of the United States and so therefore you are effectively shitting on, and making a spectacle of NZ and Maori culture just because you think it it looks cool.

    The chicks at Arizona are insanely hot though so I am all up for going over there and "teaching" the players about the haka
