Now that the world cup is over, there is some danger that we might have to return to our normal lives.
Of course it is great that we won the cup, and that everyone has had a good time, except the French, the English, the Aussies and the South Africans, but who cares about any of them.
Of course we can pretend that the euphoria of the cup will last forever, but it won't, even if we put the Wallabies All Blacks match on continuous play on a new channel called Channel Victory. Adding the (few) highlights of the final and a montage of appearances by John Key at the games wouldn't help much.
On the positive side the cult of Piri must surely be dead and buried. Who would have thought we'd say thank goodness for Stephen Donald.
