Sporting Saturday

I did indeed manage to get up before 6 AM in order to watch the England-Paraguay match. Using Skype, cherylmorgan and I watched the match "together" even though she's in the UK right now. There was a time-travel oddity, though: presumably because of something in the way she got the signal on the BBC internet feed, her view of the match was around 15-20 seconds later than mine. That meant that if I saw a big play, I'd react to it before she'd even seen it.

Now I have to run, as Dave Gallaher is waiting at the gate to take us both to the NZ Maori-Ireland A rugby match.
