We're having a charity sweepstake for the rugby world cup in work. Just before picking out my piece of paper with the team name, I jokingly say, "I'll probably get Japan." Guess which team I ended up with? :-) Ah well, I've always enjoyed the spirit with which they play their games, and I'll be happy if they win one match this time.

Also, I was more tactful than our Danish graduate who pulled out his team and said, "Oh no, Wales!" only to find out he was sitting between two welsh people :-) (For anyone from abroad, I should point out the welsh love their rugby.) It's going to be an interesting world cup at work.
