Rugby and Eagles pride

Well, after a huge upset last night (Argentina beating the French hosts) and two massive blow-outs today (NZ and AUS completely creaming their opponents) the good old Eagles from the USA managed to not be totally embarassed by defending champions England, only going down by a score of 28-10.  The pre-game chatter had the margin of victory at more like 50 (and not inconsistent with the other results of the day: NZ 76-14 Italy and Aus 91-3 Japan) and the post-game chatter is now calling it a “dismal display” by England even though they won.  Very interesting times, the Rugby World Cup continues tomorrow!
