Hard to believe Great Britain won Olympic gold in men's ice hockey in 1936.

Japan beating South Africa in rugby may be akin to Norway beating us at hockey.

More like Ireland beating us at hockey….

Wales beating out England! What a tough pool they are in and that loss could mean that England gets the boot.

Watching Scotland vs USA right now - I think I know how this is going to work out.

I am surprised of how quiet it is when the kicker is booting a penalty or points after. In the NFL the crowd makes as much noise as they can during an attempted field goal.

That England vs Wales game was amazing. Nearly threw my back out with the tension. My Aunt cheered so hard when Wales scored she dislocated her shoulder.

Now that is a rugger fan. Every time an English team plays, I just keep thinking of Ewen McGregor's line from Trainspotting (NSFW):

Man was a beast. He changed the game. Still remember the first time he played Scotland. He was like Super Mario after you got one of the star power-ups.

No shit.. Jonah died? I was in New Zealand at the University of Otago visiting a friend who worked with the all blacks at the time of his dominance. He was special.

Safe to say he brought the popularity of rugby to a new level. At times he was almost unstoppable. RIP.
