Last Saturday, we went to the Rugby match to see the New Zealand All Blacks (#1 in the world) play the South Africa Springboks (#3). It was epic! Rugby is the national sport of my favorite island nation, and people are into it. We took the bus up to the stadium, and it was a … More The Mighty All Blacks!
