Rugby!

We went to our first rugby game! We had a fun time trying to figure out the rules while watching the game. It seemed like we were watching football, yet they didn't stop when the ball was down, they would just throw it to someone else. It was pretty exciting to watch. It was the USA High School Championships. We were driving by the stadium and found out that the last game was at 7:30 Highland vs. United. We hurried to Target, bought myself a sweatshirt and a blanket for us all to share. Then went back to buy our tickets. What a fun game! Highland is the team that the Rugby movie, Forever Strong was all about. They have a winning streak of only 9 losses over the last 32 years of games. We witnessed their tenth loss. Glad our kids have no desire to play the game, just watch it!! (So far!)


Here's one of our favorite parts when they start in a huge huddle waiting for the ball to pop out somewhere...


We loved when the ball would go out and they would throw it in. The teams would lift one guy up to try and get the ball.



Camden watching as the winning team does their chant...pretty cool to see and hear!

My brother used to play rugby. He would come home having to soak in a ice water or a hot bath. A broken hand wouldn't even stop him from playing. I think it even had cracked ribs? Harsh sport but he said he would do it again.
