Accidentally In Love (with Rugby)I have never played rugby, and never had an interest in it until about 4 or 5 years ago. Basically I dated (one after the other, not together!) two guys who were rugby mad. They lived, breathed, watched and played rugby. And in order to spend any time with either of them, well I had to start watching it. And I just got into it and LOVED it.
OK, I think rugby is a very sexy sport. All that "controlled aggression" - well, most of the time! And the guys who play it, they are real men. They don't fake injuries or fall over and roll on the floor when someone taps their little toe! In fact, they often get injured and play through the injury until a suitable place to stop and receive treatment. Its very sexy for a man to be so physical and aggressive one minute, and then the whistle blows and they shake each other's hands and go for a pint...!
Most of all, I love the atmosphere at a rugby match, especially an international. All the fans mixed together, not segregated like they are in football, people drinking together and having fun and just generally enjoying the game going on in front of them.
Really looking forward to when we host the 2015 world cup, that is going to be simply amazing!!!
