I don't love rugby or anything, but I watched this weekend's World Cup final between England and South Africa.  It was really fun, we were up in Boston at an Irish pub (The Lir).  We stood downstairs and watched the rugger among a huge crowd of English with a few South African supporters firmly defending their territory at the corner of the bar.  The rest of the green jersey-wearing folk were upstairs, and we could hear their cheering after South Africa scored penalty after penalty.  It was awesome to see 1/3 of the British population of Boston in the pub and hilarious to note that when Setanta showed Gordon Brown on the screen just about everyone laughed.  Ahhh, unity in complete disregard for the country's current leader.

More pics from Boston to come.  Congrats, South Africa!
