Rugby....almost a religion for some here.

Rugby is the best game ever invented.....after Baseball.

Baseball may be a game.  Rugby is most definitely a sport. ;)

I am seeing a lot of Brazilian flags this year, so I am assuming that Brazil is doing reasonably well.

It's times like this that I really miss living in Toronto- I don't think there is a nationality or ethnicity that isn't reflected there, and so Wold Cup time was always great.  You could tell who's team was doing well by how many flags you saw in the streets and on cars, and what teams were doing even better by who was hanging out of those cars screaming as they drove down the street!

I have to wonder if the energy in Europe is the same as the energy in Toronto, as you can't simply drive two blocks from your neighborhood to rub the other team's nose in it!

Iran - Portugal is about to begin (1h45 away). It's going to be chaos getting out of work before 19h. I bet I'll get home in no time, with nobody in the bus/underground, when I leave at 19h05m.

I dont watch.  Living in SoCal with a very large Mexican population when Mexico wins I'm sure to hear about it.  Their fans go wild with each second of play.  Its pretty awesome how much passion is involved.  Me, not so much passion with regards to any sports.  I enjoy watching however I'm not someone who be giving high fives nor yelling at the top of my lungs or crying at a loss.  Its great to see that passion tho.
I hear it when... Serbia wins, when Croatia wins, Spain and Portugal are quite audible as well... Brazil surprisingly too, Germany is audible but at a rather low level... oh and for some reason there seem to be lots of Swedish fans around... and finally I hear if Switzerland wins.


I have to wonder if the energy in Europe is the same as the energy in Toronto, as you can't simply drive two blocks from your neighborhood to rub the other team's nose in it!
No need to drive...
That is pretty common in Switzerland, everybody is barbecuing... and if you really want to provoke your Brazilian neighbor just bring some German sausages.

Not sure if it's still a thing, but a Dutch girl I knew in another life told us about her brother who was a soccer hooligan.........they were just out to make smurf, running battles with police, and getting hurt was part of the game...

I remember seeing one game wher some guy "tackled" him. Lomu just ran for some 20 yards with the other player holding on to his leg like he wasn't there... until he scored and the other guy let go of him.

Not having heard anything about the match, did the French team hold up any white flags? :D

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

we basically closed down the IT department today with the outgoing message "The games are more important. Besides, did you try turning it off and on again?"

Jesus Christ. Those Rugby dudes deserve all the accolades, that's truly amazing!! I would watch that over American football any day! :SAKnight:

Oh and on a side note, I watched a World Cup match the other day for 90 minutes and nobody scored, that was cool too...  :megaslap:

Rugby should be a simple game but has too many (and some very complicated) rules.

Well, any rule breaking the referee doesn't see is allowed, so...

Game on!
