I walked into my office this afternoon and one of my officemates (who’s name I can neither spell nor yet pronounce) was watching rugby on YouTube.  Specifically, he was watching a fight between Wellington and Taranaki during the Air New Zealand Cup. So I proceeded to ask, “you like rugby?”

I then pretended to know anything at all about rugby as we talked about France v England this weekend (“the Big Clash!”), and how no one watches XIIIs here, even though there’s a stadium right next to my apartment. He says, “you  know this most famous rugby guy in France”?  He then pulls up this clip of an absolute beast of a man, Chabel, single-handedly decimating the All-Blacks.  As Tony and Wilbon say, defend your boys.
