**NZ Impression--橄欖球

紐西蘭人唯一感到興趣的運動 Rugby(橄欖球) ...紐西蘭最有名、最引以為傲的國家隊All Blacks,今天出戰威爾斯,因為老師跟我們說我們可以回家看比賽,試著聽聽播報員說的內容和他上課所教到的字。想不到他們真的叫我去看,而也許Kiwi真的都很瘋吧,Heather還一直想看~只是問他們一些規則他們也不太清楚,只是看而已~不過至少學了一些用字像是Try(和達陣同意思)、Rucking the ball(一群亂集團時互相推好搶球)...大致上是還看得懂,但是威爾斯實在是太弱了,所以比賽完全是一面倒...All Blacks 55:3 狂勝Welts....。一個禮拜後,紐西蘭對法國,紐西蘭依然獲勝了!

而今年(2003)似乎是紐西蘭開始玩橄欖球的第十年(1993-2003),所以在7/2時,郵局還出了一套All Blacks的專屬郵票唷~我也買了小全張和首日封。

(2003/8/16補充)今天終於見識到紐西蘭對於橄欖球的瘋狂了~~今天媽媽生日開Party他們的小孩都回來一起吃晚餐,偏偏今天正好在奧克蘭進行三國國際賽紐西蘭對澳洲的最後一場,紐西蘭贏的了話就是冠軍,在下午準備實務的時候,他們就在想說今天晚上幾點前要吃飯才可以來得及看,或是把餐桌搬到客廳、把電視搬到餐廳....最後小孩回來遲了,只好在一開賽前吃第一道前菜(壽司),隻後立刻到電視機前看上半場,中場休息時間所有人立刻回到餐廳吃主菜(雞塊),吃完在看下半場,等到比賽結束後才回去吃最後一道甜點(蛋糕)~~這真是太有趣了,晚餐從七點半持續到10點左右才結束,而緊張的比賽最後紐西蘭也以21比17獲勝~

(Rugby Games)

Rugby is the most popular sport in New Zealand. Before I came here, rugby didn't have much meaning for me, because in our country, not so many people like it. After I saw a live transmission of a rugby game, I realized they are really crazy about this.

Before the match, on my homestay mother's birthday, we had a formal dinner with my homestay parents and their children. On the same day, the All Blacks also had a game with Australia. Before the game started, we ate salad. Then we watched half the game, and at half time, we had the main food. Finally, we ate dessert after the game. Dinner took over 3 hours, but I enjoyed it, especially since the All Blacks also won the game.

Next month, the rugby world cup will begin. I'm lucky because I'm still here and I can see two or three games before I go back to Taiwan. After I go back to Taiwan, I think I won't be able to get any information about rugby but I won't forget it.
