I know I’m always saying I’m a super nerd and everything, which is true. But I have done other things than work on computers and play video games. I used to play rugby in high school. In fact, my senior year my team went to the high school national championship. I always get all pumped up watching rugby…I can’t play it anymore due to multiple physical ailments but I really love this shit. It’s better than any major sport in America in my opinion…everything else is so boring compared to it. So for all the rugby lovers out there, and for all the neophytes I thought I’d share some collections of the greatest rugby hits that I found around the web.
Before we go into the greatest hits vids I thought I’d educate newcomers on a thing called the “haka”, something most rugby greatest hits videos include. The haka is is a traditional Maori (New Zealand native) dance. The type of haka familiar to rugby fans is the war dance performed by the New Zealand national rugby team, the All Blacks. It is performed at the beginning of a game to intimidate the opposing side (and it pumps just about every person with a pulse who witnesses it). It’s amazing.
