Tonight will be a big night for New Zealand. The Rugby World Cup 2011 (RWC) is opening tonight in Auckland! All eyes on New Zealand.
The Eden Park Stadium is just a mere 10 minutes drive from my new place. But of course, there would be road closures and 10 minutes drive means 30 minutes walk today. Am I going? I didn’t get the tickets and I am not a sports person anyway.
But I can’t help catching a slight RWC fever myself. Passing in front of Eden Park daily seeing all the signboards, flags, rugby fans occasionally (and suddenly) screaming their country names on the streets….yeah pretty hard to miss!
Today I’ll leave early to avoid the traffic and stay home to watch the opening ceremony on TV instead of watching it live at Eden Park or even to be at the city tonight where there will be thousands of people gathering to celebrate with fireworks. I know, I am boring……!
But, but…….I do look forward to the live coverage on TV with heaps of eye candy in the form of muscular rugby players from all over the globe! And of course the infamous Haka dance.
The least I can do is show my love on Facebook 🙂
Go ALL BLACKS!!! (That’s the NZ rugby team and the only team I know…..)
Go New Zealand!!!
