Day One of the 2012 Hertz Wellington Sevens had a splash of creativity, a dash of controversy, and the odd upset thrown in for good measure. And that was just the footy.
Day Two promises to be even more exciting, as 30,000 hungover patrons return promising not to make the same mistakes, but almost certainly doing so with the fire of a thousand burning suns.
This time, it's finals day. And with New Zealand well in the hunt for back-to-back titles, it will take an impressive effort to usurp the Kiwis.
We'll bring you all the highs and lows from Day 2, including video highlights of New Zealand's push for consecutive Wellington titles.
Kenya have distracted the Welsh with promises of leek stew (and strong running rugby) to run out 17-7 winners in their bowl semi.
The Cook Islands have picked up the scalp of Japan, beating them 17-10.
While Scotland has dug deep to put the USA out of its misery 14-12 in the other shield clash.
Meanwhile, at half time, Argentina are locked in a 7-all draw with Australia. I can't imagine those lime green monstrosities would look any better through the lens of a hangover.
Perhaps the biggest disappointment of the tournament is the amount of booing towards the Australian team. It's not their fault they look like cheap lime cordial.
12:40pm – A misty day has dawned over Wellington, which we hope will blow away as the day goes on. A lot of hungover faces have risen this morning. Will they be up for more fun and frivolity? There for but the grace of God goes them all.
The first game is set to kick off at 1:00pm, but in the meantime, check out the highlights from New Zealand's win over Samoa from last night.
