Getting into the spirit of the RWC

Despite minimal interest in watching sport, I still managed to gather enough enthusiasm to decorate my portion of the office with Rugby World Cup paraphernalia. In our office we all had to blindly choose two participating countries to support, and my picks turned out to be Canada and Namibia.
The Namibian flag is really quite pretty.

Of course, you already know what the Canadian flag looks like.

They've been talking about it in all the schools, so even TLM was excited enough to watch the opening ceremony (mostly just the fireworks display).

So in the next  weeks I'll be checking to see how the All Blacks do in their games, but also supporting the Canadians and Namibians.
I bet Flagz is making tons o' money...http://www.flags.co.nz/products.php?func=14&DPT=c&DCI=5

You're good. I could never muster enthusiasm for the rugby even when NZ (even despite being forcibly made to watch games, usually during which I would read magazines and/or fall asleep). Thankfully, they don't tend to play a lot of rugby on Free to Air in Aus. and Ray's interest doesn't extend to getting Foxtel or anything. Although we're going to visit some kiwis tomorrow, so I noticed he was finding out what happened in the game last night before...

I'm got Fiji in the work sweep stake and we are going to a game in Palmerston North (Georgia vs Argentina). So I'm very mildly trying to get in the spirit of it all so I can chat to people at work and not be a hater and also so the daughter of the house doesn't feel left out at school where it seems to be huge. (But to be completely honest I'm pretty bored of it already)
