To show that we are good sports in this country (and probably also to bring some colour into what would otherwise be a town decked out in all black), the “Adopt-a-second-team” initiative was launched. Different suburbs are allocated one of the visiting teams as second favorite team. In the case of Mount Albert it is USA, with stars and stripes aflutter. With blue, white and red, and tongue in cheek, Carolyn of Le’ Chapeau Millinery on New North Road extends her stylish welcome. Compliments – or should I say: tip of the hat!
(Oh, I am talking Rugby World Cup here – even this blogger can’t escape the fun and games of the occasion. By the way, the USA won their first game on Thursday night: USA 13 – Russia 6.)
