And I'm all in once piece, although quite sore and black and blue.
Lilypad Princess and I got to the pitch a few minutes before the game started. There weren't many alumni, a few canceled at the last minute, so they wanted me to start the game. I not only started, I played the entire game, 2 20 minute halves.
I was thrown right back into the hooker position. There were definitely a few things I've forgotten after 10 years, but alot came right back to me. I tackled and was tackled, got right into some rucks and mauls, and even stole a couple of the scrumdowns. It felt great to be back out there again, although I'd forgotten just how sore my back and shoulders get after multiple scrums.
Lilypad Princess had a great time on the sidelines, cheering me on and playing her own version of rugby with Beth's husband, Dave. I forgot my camera so I don't have any photos to share now, but there were some cameras so hopefully I'll have some soon.
