Six Nations

I love this time of year.  Whether it's on tellly...
Or, even better, in person at Murrayfield with Paige...
That's Chris Patterson about to kick for goal up there.  All our nine points came from him.  I swear, he never misses.  We did lose to the French, mostly through silly mistakes and throwaways, but it was still so much fun to be there, live and in person.  It was a very last-minute decision to go, but we still got good seats and had a blast.  I sang the Scottish anthem in the midst of a standfull of French fans (yikes!) and cheered my wee heart out.  I can't wait to go again some time.  Brilliant
The next weekend, I watched on tv while we were beating Wales... and then it all went wrong.  It was a heartbreaking lose, and three of our men went down with some serious injuries.  One of them had to have surgery to fuse bones in his neck... luckily, he is moving his arms and legs now.  They will all three be out for the rest of the Six Nations Championships, and in at least the case of one, the whole season.  You can read about it here, if you're interested.  So the last weekend of the month, when we pick back up, who knows what will happen?  But overall, we've been playing so much better this year.  And even if we weren't, I'd still be cheering. 

I. Love. This. Game. 

If you are interested, you can go here for some fun stuff about this year's support campaign:  We Are Scotland.  It's really good stuff, if I do say so myself. 


Nevermind that it's for the autumn test matches;  it's still good for now.  =D
