Reading some of the dramatic posts on here anyone would think you all actually played in the final.
Pretty much coz we lived every single moment.
Being a sports fan is a big thing.
In that article that @Duluth quoted I tried to express how we all felt as we are all part of the All Blacks at some level.
And that was THE most emotional I've ever felt in sport, watching, playing, supporting.
No need to belittle that experience.
I’m not belittling anything merely making an observation. According to my FB memories I was on my second beer by 9.33am so we were all coping in different ways.
I did drink a lot more back then though.
Pretty dickish observation.
