World Cup

Glad that's over. Played hell with my internal clock. Never got used to watching games totally sober with a full day still to come. Were the English as disrespectful with their medals as I thought? Seemed awfy churlish.

I really didn't want the racist, white supremacists to win, so I'm glad SA beat them.

I am so glad South Africa won - I'm also sorry the English lost in such a way - perhaps there wasn't much left after NZ?

Do you have a preferred way for the English to lose - other than to the Scots, Welsh, Irish, French, or any other team?

I was trying to say that because the Springboks didn't let them settle or get into the game - it wasn't much of a game to watch.

I don't see why we had a World Cup - why couldn't we just respect the result of the last one?
