Rugby World Cup

All Blacks win scrappy Cup opener – Rugby World Cup – NZ Herald News.

The rugby is finally underway, after weeks of saturation coverage on tv and in the newspapers.  New Zealanders are mostly pretty insane about rugby and the All Blacks haven’t won the world cup since 1987, so the country is facing six weeks of jittery excitement, both hoping (and expecting) that they’ll win, and trying to keep that hope in check because we secretly fear that they’ll choke (like they did in 2007) and lose.
