I may have a new favorite sport. At least until college football season starts again.
Mrs. Crappy and I met Father Spoon and Dahcheet at Boyce Park this afternoon to finally see Annoyed Angel and Calipanthergrl and the rest of the Pittsburgh Angels play. And although I understood about half of what I was watching, I had a great time.
The final score helped — Pittsburgh beat the Severn River club 80-0. AA even scored a try for us. (That was for us, right?)
AA, who didn’t play the first half, also helped by answering our dumb questions for a while. That was a big help, although I found the game isn’t at all difficult to follow even if you’re not completely clear on what’s happening.
We didn’t stick around for the men’s second game, although I want to see them play — if for no other reason than it’ll help convince me that golf is a much more appropriate sport for a person of my advanced age.
Rugby Day Part Two — better known as the Asshat Tweetup — is coming up in just a few hours. If you’re in Pittsburgh and you don’t have an infant at home to take care of (Hi, Spoon!), attendance is mandatory. See you there.
