Yesterday my son's rugby team won their match in the first round of the PA State play-offs. The beat a very tough team from West Chester. With each match I watch I acquire a bit more knowledge about the game, what is going on and why. Watching yesterday's match was great fun and the sidelines were filled with enthusiastic spectators. The kid is really enjoying the sport and there is rumor he will be nominated for the All-Star team as scrum-half....after his first season....needless to say I am impressed and proud.
As an aside, my old high school lacrosse coach was at the match...his grandson was on the other team. I had a wonderful chat with the man and caught up with someone who was quite important in my life at one point.
