    Default Rugby Career Over

    I received the text I have been hoping to get for the past couple of weeks.

    DD: "Dad I have officially retired from rugby."
    Me: Trying to contain my excitement..."Why?"
    DD: "The coaches said last night: Those of you with good mechanics and form might get hurt, those of you who don't WILL get hurt. I took that as my cue and retired."
    Me: "I think that is a good decision."

    Now she just has to survive her Irish Politics class....

    I did not even know they had female rugby.

    I just remember watching it when ESPN 1st came out, they beat the crap out of each other. Boxing seemed safer.

    I with you, party if DD quit.

    She might have been safer in rugby! As long as the class doesn't do a field trip to a pub she may be ok.
    Donít practice until you get it right. Practice until you canít get it wrong.

    I used to know a karate sensei who said he learned more about fighting playing rugby than he did studying karate.
