Am I Crazy?


Scrum, Hooker, Ruck, Maul
These are just a few words that used to be a part of my everyday vocabulary. It has now been almost 10 years (this month) since I last played rugby. And here I am, possibly getting back on the pitch again tomorrow.

My college rugby team is holding our second annual alumni game tomorrow and Lilypad Princess and I are heading down to join them. We watched the game last year, but I wasn't in any shape to even attempt to play then. I won't play very long tomorrow, I need to stay on the sidelines with LP, but if there is someone that she will be willing to stay with I would love to get back in the game for 5 minutes or so.

Yes, I really think I am crazy.

Good Luck! I used to watch my brother play in college (he played at Lehigh), but I never for a moment considered playing the sport. I am too chicken! Hope you had fun visiting your school. it is always fun to go back!

Rumor has it that the LP Mom survived the game without any visible (or hidden) injury.

Congratulations!!

PS - perhaps, instead of Rugby, we can get the LP princess interested in a sport with less contact,like curling or croquet???

Have fun! I know nothing about rugby. I'm sure you'll do great and LP will love watching you.
