My sincerest thanks to Billy Goodell, Swamp, Geip, the NO Olde BoyZ and everyone who made the past weekends’s tournament possible.

Saw my rugby fraternity brothers and played for the first time in seven years.


The seven seconds I lasted was worth it. (pulled a hammy 20 steps after kickoff)!!!!!!!!

Next year dude. Next year.
