It doesn't seem like four years ago that Jonny Wilkinson was winning the World Cup for England, but here we go again with the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
In fact if you're nostalgic for the moment that Wilkinson sealed the Webb Ellis Trophy for his country, you can watch a re-enactment with John Inverdale, Matt Dawson, Phil Williams, Mark Pougatch, Mark Saggers and Spoony, and also create your own version - but this is just part of the BBC's build-up to the tournament, which starts on Friday 7 September.
Inverdale and company's video is available with out-takes on the BBC Radio 5 live website and also on YouTube, where you will be invited to have a go yourself. And there's more fun available this week as you wait for the action to start, including a game, called DropClick, where you can test your knowledge of rugby union.
And there's also this blog, which amongst other things will feature a journey around France by Tom Fordyce and Ben Dirs, two of the BBC Sport website's most popular writers.
You might know Tom and Ben from their inimitable brand of text commentaries on cricket, golf, tennis and other sports. Some of you might remember the blog that Paul Fletcher and Martin Richardson wrote as they toured Germany during last year's football World Cup. We're hoping Tom and Ben's travel tales will be just as good if not better.
Then on Friday the action will get under way for real, and you can listen to commentaries from all the major games, and all the matches featuring the home nations, on 5 live and 5 live Sports Extra. Those commentaries will also be available on bbc.co.uk/rugbyunion, as well as digital television, while BBC Radio Wales will also broadcast all of Wales's games.
5 live's top rugby commentators will be joined by the likes of Matt Dawson, Gavin Hastings, Hugo McNeil, Rob Jones, Justin Marshall, Robbie Fleck, Zinzan Brooke and Matt Burke.
Inside Sport, due to launch its second series on BBC One on 3 September, will preview the event and feature postcards from the RWC during the tournament.
Elsewhere on bbc.co.uk/rugbyunion, there will be previews, live text commentaries, reports, photo galleries, results and fixtures, team guides, and the chance to get involved via the 606 website or this blog. The blog will contain behind-the-scenes snippets and thoughts from 5 live's reporters who will be with the home nation teams, and from other BBC Sport journalists following the World Cup, as well as Fordyce and Dirs.
The BBC Sport website will have a columnist from each country - Josh Lewsey from England, Scotland's Chris Cussiter, Tom Shanklin of Wales and Ireland's Geordan Murphy - and you will get the chance to put questions to these players, and hear their answers.
And on the 5 live website, there will be a virtual clubhouse, housing podcasts, the DropClick game, the chance to showcase your photos from the RWC using our dedicated Flickr area, and more. The 5live clubhouse becomes rather less virtual when it goes on the road to watch the games from rugby clubs up and down the UK.
So lots to get involved in right across the BBC. Let us know your thoughts (but if you'd rather just get on to Tom and Ben to tell them where they should be visiting in France, I'd understand), and enjoy the tournament.
