have been watching a fair bit. i played a lot when i was in my teens and early 20's and have always loved the game. now there's a sport where they know how to have intensity on the field and cameraderie off of it. blood and pints...
my brother in law is staying with me right now. he's a kiwi, so naturally has a huge interest. he won the lottery 2+ years ago for tickets to about 10 of the games and then ended up moving to canada and having kids. so much for world cup tickets. he took them to an air new zealand flight a couple of days before the cup started and asked the flight attendant to have a contest for them on the flight. somebody got lucky, that's for sure.
the wales-south africa game the other day was a good one.
