"...before the Rugby World Cup."

I have heard this tacked on the end of news stories more times than I could possibly count this year. It all begins tomorrow.

New Zealand has gone apeshit for this flag bunting, it's everywhere.


There's a mini rugby field in Civic Square now. And many, many buggies (strollers?) And sometimes a news crew or a school trip.


Unrelated to RWC, but neat.

Hahaha I love this comment. New Zealand is going absolutely crazy over it, and getting so upset over every little thing... it's nice to know the rest of the world actually doesn't give a crap :-) Rugby is such a snore to me, I can't wait for it to all be over!
