http://www.rugbyworldcup.com/

The struggle already started – but my Springboks (South Africa for you non rugby folks) are already winning (albeit a close one).

I’m wearing my green and gold – what colors are ya’ll sporting?

Isn’t it sad – one of the most popular sports in the world (ranking depends on method of measurement, but top 5 is the standard, well above american football) is hardly given a thought in the US.

What does this say about us (yes, I’m from the states) as a country?

Well, of course the USA. But mostly the All Blacks (New Zealand) around our house.

I think it says that we like our players with lots of pads : )

Following the “Green Machine”. We looked very ordinary against the USA but am expecting
a much improved performance against Australia next Saturday.

I’ve tried to watch rugby but I can’t say that I really understand any of it. It looks like people got bored with soccer, so decided to create a sport where you get to beat the crap out of each other. Which is ok in my books.

Well done! Anyone who beats the Wallabies earn my cheers :D.

The Boks beat up on Fiji pretty bad as well. Sadly I wont be able to see any games until the semis. Until then it’s just catching highlights on the net…. :-(
