Oh my goodness, what a night last night was for the boys of Rugby / League.
We were lucky enough to be at the NZ / France game last night. Wow! What an atmosphere. There were a TON of French supporters there which kinda freaked me out when they all started singing. I mean it was deafening and I thought to myself, self, why doesn't NZ have a 'chant' or 'song' so we could make some noise? I mean seriously!
But it made the stadium just rock. It was amazing. I still don't know how my daughter managed to sleep the second half away on my lap though?! LOL.
Matt suddenly 'woke up' when the donut guy came around! Too funny. And to give him his fair dues, he did try to wake Sarah to give her one, but she was out to it.
"Ole" whenever anyone scored. LOVED it. And no matter that Sarah was sleeping, this Mum screamed Ole with everyone else each time.
Seeing that first All Black try. After all that time defending, it was amazing to see them take the first opportunity that came along and score.
Watching Dan Carter before the game. Anyone that watches the Small Blacks rugby on Sunday mornings during winter knows that Dan Carter (or DC to the kids) gives them little tips and pieces of advice. One of them at some point was a 'game' he played to practise, improve his skills, practise. And he was doing it last night. It was cool to see he does what he suggests.
Spider cam. Man oh man is that thing cool! I LOVE it. Both watching it move around the stadium and seeing the coverage on the telly.
Seeing the All Blacks live. Gosh haven't seen them live in ages. Was amazing. And I forget just how big they are. Conrad Smith was one that really surprised me.
Sitting with my husband at a game. Was so nice.
And then we caught a double decker bus back to the Shore (how cool!) and put the kids to bed, and watched the Warriers win their way into the grand final next week. So so so so cool. They rocked the game and sure did deserve the win! Well done boys! Well done!
