Boys Running for the Ball

0239_Scrum! Scrum!

So tonight was my first rugby game – I doubt it will be my last.

We walked down to the pub where the bus was leaving from, had a beer, then loaded on our bus to get to the game. We were worried that we were late, but it turned out that we got some seats just fine. We didn’t really know what the hell was going on in the game anyhow, so it didn’t matter where we sat (in my opinion!).

My friend Tiana was kind enough to get us a hotdog because there was no sausage sizzle, even though they said there was going to be a BBQ. Okay, the preoccupation with sausages here is one thing, but when you put that in an orange (yes orange) casing, and try to pawn it off as an “American Hot Dog” that is just not good. I should have taken a picture of the dog. Gross.
