If you recall my last few rugby experiences, you will agree that I am not the sportiest of ladies- yes? Me too.
So why the hell did I join a touch rugby team?
Actually, there were numerous reasons I was attracted to join this particluar team. Time for a list!
1. It is an all girls team, but also an all girls team made up of girls who have (for the most part) never played the game.
2. My friends created it after tiring of hearing all of our guy friends (and Grace) talk about rugby nonstop. It got boring just listening.
3. Our team is the girliest touch rugby team, possibly in the history of the game. We like sparkles and puppies. And lip gloss. And shoes. Our uniforms are tie dyed.
4. I needed the exercise.
So, my lady friends and I trained for about three weeks, learned the gist of the game and then participated in an international touch tournament in Seoul where we played against really good teams. We tried our best, but against these girls your best is not good enough. However; if they were ever planning on giving out "cutest outfit" awards or "most sunshiney attitude" awards we would have definitely cleaned up. Here are some pics:
While the real rugby players watched, I wolfed down an egg mcmuffin and hash brown for breakfast. It's not my fault that our hotel was on top of a McDonald's, ok?
My nails needed some pizazz before the game, so I painted them pink of course!
Jeremy and this guy from a Korean team had a dance off before the game, natch.
Then the guys won the plate! Again!
