On Rugby, Peachtree Schnapps, Navy Football and Sparky
Just before the Skins kicked off against the Ravens last Thursday, I met some rugby players walking to the game. They were drinking Peachtree schnapps.
(I had long ago decided that rugby would be a major focus of the Bog. Rugby players, fans, bloggers, start passing around the link. I have many reasons, but The Editor said my posts are too long, so you'll have to wait. For now, two reasons:
All I know about the rugby guys is that they're hot and they throw awesome parties.
And this paragraph, from a recent Irish Independent column arguing that rugby is better than soccer:
Irish rugby coach Eddie O'Sullivan says quirky things like "ducks in-a-row", "in the hopper" and "full bag of chips". Brian O'Driscoll says things like "B of the bang". Soccer's Steve Staunton says "whatever" a lot while his striker Robbie Keane says "obviously" all the time.
Can anyone define "full bag of chips" or "B of the bang" for me?)
Anyhow, I met these rugby guys and told 'em about the Bog. They were from a rugby team called CRABSS: Chesapeake Rugby and Beer Select Side. This name, you'll note, leads to all sorts of hilarity; various team members are said to have scored 1600 on their STDs, for example. The Skins game was about to start, but they stood there giving me impassioned speeches about rugby and insisting I had to go to their tailgate at Saturday's Navy-ECU game for a special ceremony. When large men drinking Peachtree schnapps and wearing sunglasses at 8 p.m. on a cloudy day tell you to do something, you generally do it. So I went. Report will follow in another post, because my posts are too long.
