We are the champions

Unless you live in the US or one of the weird European countries, you should know by now that the South African rugby team – the Springboks – won the World Cup Rugby competition last Saturday.

Despite the fact that an American player got the award for the best try scored during the competition, my brother-in-law in Kansas says it is extremely difficult to find a channel that shows rugby in the US. I would imagine the same thing in countries like Germany, Sweden.

Well done Bokke.

  1. I live in California and watched every single game (even though they were a day delayed – could have payed an extra $150 to watch the games live on their website). I bought the Setanta sports channel, which showed everything. Sad thing is that there was nobody to celebrate with. There are a few pubs that were broadcasting the games live, but don’t know what the turnout was for those. You’re right, America keeps itself sheltered from the rest of the world – very depressing!
