Video: Gratuitous ‘All Black’ Rugby Beefcake Break

17 March 2011, 17.49 | Posted in Fun Facts | 2 comments »

While confessing to know nothing about rugby other than it features amazing men, we were still nonetheless excited to discover in the WSJthis morning that All Black, New Zealand’s national rugby team will continue to perform the Maori war dance (see video above and weep) prior to the start of games. Apparently the right to perform was brought under question when descendants of the Maori looked to legally control song lyrics. But no, not true, a representative for the tribe recently stated that the tribe has always supported All Black’s performance and takes great pride in it even. And thank god for that!
