OK, so I’ve been in England, in Liverpool to be precise, and I’ve been subject to seeing soccer on TV channels. As you know the English call this “football.” Which is OK, I’m fine with that. But it’s not NFL football. Today I was able to take a few minutes and watch rugby.
Have you ever been totally lost? That’s how I was with rugby. I’m not really sure how this game works other than the fact that I saw them kick several field goals. I can recognize field goals because when the ball went through the uprights the crowd was happy. But exactly how the plays work in rugby I really can’t figure out. things just seem to move from one thing to another with no real breaks. Not like NFL football where every play starts and stops.
The Super Bowl is approaching and once again I’ll be out of the United States when it happens. I missed the last three Super Bowls that way. I’m hoping we can grab a few hours in the night (It starts at about midnight here) and watch the game before going to work. It’s either that or rugby and I won’t be able to stand the confusion of rugby.Eric Drouant
