World champion All Blacks hailed in victory parade
AUCKLAND (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of people flooded onto the streets of downtown Auckland Monday to celebrate the end of a 24-year drought after the All Blacks beat France in the rugby World Cup final.
New Zealand had not won the Webb Ellis trophy since the inaugural tournament in 1987 and were forced to dig deep in Sunday's final as they rode a wave of emotion across the rugby-mad country of four million to scratch out an 8-7 victory at a packed Eden Park.
With Monday a public holiday in New Zealand, the collective hangover of the country's largest city was still palpable on the streets as thousands of people gathered early for the victors' parade, mixing with stragglers making their way home from late-night festivities.
Crowds were banked 20-deep in places along the parade's route in central Auckland as the procession kicked off at 2:30 p.m. local time (0130 GMT) with players, coaches and support staff ferried along city streets in a convoy of open-deck utility vehicles.
"This is very special. I can't believe how many people are out here ... This is just awesome," All Blacks flyhalf Daniel Carter, whose tournament finished early with a torn groin tendon, told local television from the back of the first car.
Monday's joyous outpouring, the largest in the country since Team New Zealand's 'Black Magic' won yachting's greatest prize for the first time with their 1995 America's Cup triumph, was carried by both national television networks and left the players amazed by the turn-out.
"It's a great day. It's so fantastic. Just shows how much it means to everyone in New Zealand and it's great to be part of it," said scrumhalf Andy Ellis, who kicked the ball into touch to end Sunday's final and a generation of frustration.
Captain Richie McCaw and coach Graham Henry paraded the Webb Ellis trophy in the final car, with veterans Brad Thorn and Mils Muliaina and assistant coach Wayne Smith, all of whom ended their All Blacks careers at the tournament.
The team will be feted in further parades this week.
New Zealand's second largest city of Christchurch, which lost the right to host seven World Cup games after a devastating earthquake in February, will hail them Tuesday before they head to Wellington the following day.
"It means everything (to get the support of the people). You dream of this as a little kid and for it to come true is unreal," said flyhalf Aaron Cruden, who went off in the final with a knee injury.
"New Zealand, we love you. YES!"

- You cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them. No matter how much you care, some people just don't care back.
- It takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it. It's not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts. No matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides. True friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
- Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.
- We are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel
p/s: everything happens for a reason, even though sometimes i don't understand the reason until it gives me a lesson.

"We ignore the ones who adore us, adore the ones who ignore us.
We love the ones who hurt us and hurt the ones who love us.
Isn't it ironic?"
