Guilty Pleasures watching England screw up the Rugby World Cup final. Hey, I wanted them to win, but you can't tell me that one second after the whistle blew we wouldn't have been buried under 8000 articles contrasting the success of the rugby team to the footy players.

That's not it though. It's that every hack MSM columnist in the country would be claiming it was a victory for rugby-related values (and not rugby league either). I don't think we need any lessons on patriotism from folks incapable of interpreting national success as anything more elevated than a chance to wage civil war.So if there's one thing to lighten the gloom, it's the thought of thousands of smug, snooty articles being deleted over the weekend.
