The Weblog as a Tool for Conniving Irishmen

I've been keeping my cards close to my chest about tonight's match between Ireland and Australia at the Rugby World Cup. Pretending that I think Ireland have as much chance of beating the Aussies at rugby in Australia as they ever had of beating us at football in Ireland. And they've bought it! So, if we lose, no slagging for me. But if O'Gara, O'Driscoll, Wood, and Hickey turn on the style, which I think they will now the pressure is off, I'm going to direct my fellow viewers to this post in mock-humble smugness. And then say I (kind of) told you so.
