Was it Old Spice ads that used to talk about manly men doing manly things? Anyway, I’ve decided the most manly men doing the most manly things are the New Zealand and France rugby teams playing in the 2011 Rugby World Cup right now. I’ve watched a lot of different sports, but rugby takes the cake for all-out team contact sport — with no pads. I know nothing of the rules — er, laws — of the game but it’s pretty amazing. Manly men, indeed. NZ just won, 8-7, for the first time in 24 years. Grats, All Blacks!
