    Default Don't care about rugby?

    Lurking throughout the country there exists a cell of people who share a common bond, one which dare not speak its name. These people are everywhere.

    They live in our communities, work alongside you, sit next to you on the bus and queue by you at the supermarket.

    Outwardly they look just like you and me but they're not.

    Some are male, many are female but they are united by one common bond: They could not give a rat's about the Rugby World Cup.

    Oh my god! Run for your lives! The end of the world is near! It could be your boss or your co-worker, neighbor or, aaagh, my mother!!! You can't trust anyone!

    Oh my word. Rugby is pretty much the only reason I came to NZ.

    Just kidding, but it is pretty #$%@ important!

    My wife and boys bought me that sweet All Blacks polo with the blue swatches on the side for Father's Day. I'll be wearing it every day until the Cup comes home!


    Oh, and Go Red Sox!

    Man stole Weetbix All Blacks cards from boxes
    12:14PM Thursday September 06, 2007

    A man opened 10 large packets of Weetbix in a supermarket and stole the All Blacks cards inside.

    Lindsay Matua Winiata went to the Pak n Save supermarket in Wainoni, Christchurch, on August 31.

    He opened 10 large packets of Weetbix - a sponsor of the men in black - and swiped the All Black Stat Attack trading cards inside.

    He hid the cards in his clothing and then tried to leave the store with the pile of opened Weetbix boxes unpaid for.

    Just don't follow KiwiHopeful's lead and ask the guys in the pub if they like your "sweet" All Black top! lol

    Now How are you going to feel when ,and if england (or your birth place) face the all blacks.
    I struggle a bit when Ireland play england,as my dad being Irish and the biggest part of my family by far coming from Ireland.
    As weird as it sound's its Ireland for rugby and england for footie,dont know how i will feel when im in NZ.
    Well i better get back to paceing up and down in front of the tv till it all starts

    I know that my kids are crazy for those flippin' cards. I've never had to eat so many Weetbix. And they're not as nice as Weet - A - bix. I can only force these ones down if I drench them in hot milk. Thanks to my new espresso machine, I'm averaging two lattes, an espresso and six weetbix a day! It's a good job I'm in serious training for the Coast to Coast......

    ps, Can anyone swap Dan Carter for Luke McAlister?
