Thank You and new blog

I started this blog on Labor Day 2008 to chronicle my journey as I trained in hopes of representing the United States in the first ever Sevens Rugby World Cup in Dubai. For me it didn't work out as I'd hope. Today, It was exciting to listen to the finals between Australia and New Zealand. I got caught up in the moment. Then I had a moment or two realizing I wasn't there.

To everyone who intentionally read my blog, thank you. I write intentionally because many have stumbled upon it accidentally. But I thank you for stopping by too. Thanks for writing me privately, leaving comments, indulging me with my requests for wrestling names and following the adventures of the pink cape. I'm not sure where it ended up.

Some of my posts were hard to write, but overall I've enjoyed blogging about this experience. Currently, I have another rugby blogging project in the pipeline where I ask fellow ruggers and lovers of the game to share their stories with me. Working out the final details, but please check back shortly if you'd like to participate.

Yours in Rugby

Australia has won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy smokes, It must have been amazing to see this. I was just listening and can only imagine how special it must be to be there live. Waltzing Matilda through out Dubai tonight.

Sudden Death Over time

Yikes. The final hooter has blown. And it's down to SUDDEN Death over time. Good lord, they've played 20 minutes already. But I guess they should be fit. .......I venture to say the Southern Hemisphere will emerge victorious!

World Cup FINALS: New Zealand v. Australia

The finals are on live. 3:00 minutes left on the clock. 10 all New Zealand v Australia.

USA out in semi finals

I don't know details, just the final score. The USA have bowed out of the first ever world cup losing to New Zealand in the Semi finals 12-14.
