rugby day, part one.

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.

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.
