Rugby things that are awesome.

This is the first in an occassional series exploring why the culture of rugby, not the actual game, is awesome.

Today, we see an awesome pre-game ritual by New Zealand All Blacks. Not only is the ritual awesome, but that name is awesome. Ironically, I'm not certain any of the players are black.

Now I don't know how this match turned out, but that bit of theatrics is pretty awesome. It's like synchronized swimming, except for on a rugby field.

It had sort of a Michael Jackson "Beat it" vibe for me.

I'm not sure that's really awesome.

that would have been so much more awesome had they not been wearing shirts.

If Michael Jackson or any of the other dancers in that video were tough looking, then I think you'd have a point.
