Sports Drama

Finally, it is over. The 6 nations Rugby match.

I have never watched a Rugby match until now and Mr. M is a big fan of all sports, especially rugby, hurling, football, tennis etc etc etc. The first match I watched was the Ireland vs Wales match…and I couldn’t watch after a few minutes. It was emotionally demanding on my part. Everyone fall on that one person with the ball…Goodness Gracious. I immediately took out my Kindle and kept an ear out for any yay!’s from Mr. M for the score. Sadly, Ireland lost that game. And since England was winning the championship because they were already ahead in the game, he wasn’t very keen on the final match on Saturday (at least that is what he told me the other day). But when he checked the score online on our way back from some shopping and saw that Ireland was winning, he was upset that he lost 20 mins of the game. 🙄 Men and their sports drama, I tell ya. He was on pins and needles the rest of the time until the game ended with Ireland winning against England in Dublin. Wasn’t he the happiest man that day!
I had thought that football was violent. Rugby is scary. I also watched bits and pieces of a football match (with Man Utd) The amount of drama that goes on… Oh! my Goodness!…Well, it is clear that sports aren’t my cup of tea, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy my weekly dose of badminton games. Those are so non-painful games you know. We are also planning to extend it to Tennis and see if we can do it. I have never played tennis before, so it will be interesting to know how I fare.

    I first saw rugby on the TV back in 2000 while in China. The TV feed was from Australia. It was fascinating to contrast it to American football – rough, contact sport with no padding and players constantly in motion. It made our football seem more dull than I had previously thought!

    I take it that Mr M is Irish? 🙂

    I played rugby union in high school. I played hooker (the middle guy in the front row of the scrum). There was always bruising and bleeding on some part of the body at the end of the game. I enjoyed it. 🙂

      Yeah. He is Irish! 😉

      And you lost me with all those technical rugby jargons (I only know the Scrum of Agile programming 😉 )
