    This is a great feel-good story, if ever there was one. The guy was picked at random from a 46,000 strong Wembley Stadium match crowd at last night's Saracen's v South Africa rugby game. The challenge was to take a punt, sans boots, and hit the crossbar.

    And he did it!! He hit the crossbar.. :D:D Now he's 250,000 ($400,000) better off.

    Vid, pic and full heartwarming story at the linky. It will put a smile on your face.

    Good for him and he certainly can use the money. Rugby is more of a manly game than soccer.

    True that. Rugby is more akin to NFL, but without the padding, the complexity and to a large extent, the money. By comparison, soccer is a homosexual person's game. :D

    I never thought of it that way but you are correct comparatively speaking.
