David has been watching the France vs. New Zealand (which I’m told is the best team, or is it South Africa?) rugby game for the past two hours. Apparently they just won. I have no idea what this means. But David says they are now in the semi-finals. I tried watching the last few minutes, and rugby games are 80 minutes long (hey, I do know something about rugby!), but the clock didn’t stop at 80 minutes, so I was extra confused. I understand this game as much as I understand football. ::sigh:: Though I think I’d prefer to watch rugby in France than football in the US. No annoying commercial breaks every 2 minutes! At least I understand soccer since I used to play it. But this country’s obsession with soccer and rugby is just as bad as the US’s obsession with football and basketball. Aren’t there more important things in the world besides sports?
