 Next Sunday France and New Zealand, the All Blacks, will play the final of the 2011 Rugby World Cup. One of these two teams represents the greatness, the passion, the honor, the respect for the shirt one wears and for the legacy it carries, the love of rugby. The other one (at least in its current incarnation) represents the mediocrity, the lack of respect for the public and for its own colors, the search of the result no matter what. Two very different ways of seeing and living the most beautiful sport there is. Unless the Gods of rugby decide to play a big, cruel joke on rugby fans worldwide, we already have our Champion. Let's just hope the final result is a crushing victory for one, a humiliating defeat for the other. A lesson for decades to come.
