Didn't watch the match this am but man, to go out out by just one point?? Must really suck for Wales!

So it's going to be France v NZ or AUS
The match tonight is one Id rather watch over the finals but since we have a match later on that day... we'll see if I can take a long siesta and go see it.

From Ladbrokes:

New Zealand’s ruthless dismantling of Australia in their World Cup semi final has seen them installed as big 1/8 favouirtes for their final against France.


Yeah - I dunno. The Kiwi's have been pissing me off with their booing of England, and I find it really hard to pull for France in anything.

The final between New Zealand and France is on TV tomorrow, Sunday October 23rd at noon Pacific on NBC.

Somebody watch and tell me the result.

JK. I'll tape it, and have a nice little nap while viewing it.

Final's not being broadcast live, right? Time for Internet feeds again?

Unfortunately, my DVR was out of space, and I missed the first half.

So regretfully, I missed NZ doing the Haka.

They won by a point and got that "Monkey" off their back. Next Rugby WC is in London.

See all y'all then...

I only watched the second half too but I knew the result anyways... I ended up watching the beginning last night just to watch the haka on Universal Sports.

Next WC is something I would not mind to try to attend. And the matches will be on at like 11am opposed to 1.

The next Rugby WC is in England in 2015.

St. James Park in Newcastle is listed as one of the venues. Think I'll take the whole family.

My buddy lives in Twickenham where the final will surely be held. He said he never goes.

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which "unskilled people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it." The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average.
