Everyone's A Winner

I'm a couple days late with this, but ....

It's often noted among sporting fans in Great Britain that England invents games and the rest of the world learns how to beat them at it (cricket: Australia; rugby: New Zealand; football: everybody). On Saturday, however, all three of England's national teams were at play, and all three won, including a bit of a drubbing of the U.S. team in the Rugby World Cup.

Will this continue? If you ask the sportswriters, they're all awful.

UPDATE: England (football) plays Russia tonight in Euro 2008 qualifying. Let the teeth-gnashing re-commence.

The Irish were, however, disappointed that the win was not more of a drubbing of the Namibia team
