Rugby World Cup [SPOILER]
« on: September 06, 2007, 05:14:37 PM »

Starts tomorrow.  Time to broaden your horizons stroh.   Wink

All or at least the vast majority of the games are broadcast on Setanta.  The free month on Dish Network ended yesterday and it's a pretty steep $15 per month but I'm going to have to take the plunge. 

Rugby Union is one of the best sports in the world.  I played for three years when I lived in Alabama.  Some of the best times I've ever had were at rugby tournaments.  Nothing like bleeding into your beer with a guy who was trying to rip your *goshdarn* head off 30 minutes ago.

Anyway, here's the site - http://www.rugbyworldcup.com/.  At least cheer on the Eagles against the evil Sassanach on Saturday.   Devil

Shoot the Boot!!! Beyatch!!!

My money is on the Kiwis.


Actually I don't even know if they're in it.  I just felt like saying that. Smiley

I've always wanted to see a rugby match live.  Though I know little about the sport, and don't follow it, I imagine the intensity of it all, in a large arena would be unmatched.   

I have seen a half dozen or more speedway motorcycle races in the UK, and it is beyond belief at the fervor for which they root for their respected teams.  If they are this intense for 4 motorcycles going around in a circle, the clamor of a rugby or football match is something I would really like to experience.

You're in denial.   Wink

They'd have to be second favorites behind Ireland.   Shocked  Just kidding, Ireland are in the Group of Death with France and Argentina.

Do you think the England v USA match will be slightly one sided? Wink

Probably, but you never know.  Although England are about as poor a side  as can be imagined for holders.  Their decline has been abrupt to say the least. 

The usual suspects have to be considered the favorites.  You can't say enough about home field advantage.  France could do some damage. 

Hell, I'd just take a northern hemisphere champion.  Keep you guys 'down under' where you belong.   Wink Shocked Devil

So the whole idea behind that is to intimidate their opponents.  So why do the opponents stand there and watch it.  I'd go have a piss or something while they had their little dance.

It's just tradition... the whole thing makes more sense when they play against the aussies..it's about atmosphere. I guess most other countries really couldn't give a toss, and would deem it an opportune time to go take a leak...

And they called me culturally insensitive for not giving a bollocks about that Maori business.   Angry Angry Angry

The best team in the world has a *goshdarn* feather for their logo.   Angry Angry

You hit me where it hurts gleek.   Angry

I find the logo for the Aussie team interesting too.



What's the story behind that dance by the All-Blacks anyway? It's pretty well-choreographed. I think they should try out for "America's Got Talent". I hear that show's being broadcast in New Zealand now.  Cheesy

So we have green "flowers", a feather, a choreographed dance, and a cute, furry, docile marsupial representing this "tough" sport.

Are all these rugby teams just being ironic? You know--like calling a really big guy "Tiny"? Grin

Dude, England's a rose.  If yer gonna make fun of the shamrocks, the feathers and the rodents yer gotta make fun of the rose.

In fact, I'll jump right in and support you on that one.   Devil
