Sucker for 10s

We played so well.  And yet we lost.  It's heart-breaking, though nothing compared to a fortnight ago.  And now I have another fortnight to wait.  In the meantime, I thought I'd share something with you.

Sorry-- I'm talking about rugby again.  The 6 Nations.  In case you were confused.  

I have to confess, I can't but help play favourites.  I love all my Scotland boys, no doubt.  They all have a special, special place in my heart.

Even so, I can't help it.  I love a good fly-half.  I love to watch them kick and run and tackle... they can generally do it all.  And dang.  Just look at this!

Jonny Wilkinson.  England.  Oh boy.  I know I'm not supposed to cheer for them, but dang.  From the RBS 6 Nations.
Chris Paterson, our most amazing kicker.  Sadly, he's out with an injury for the rest of the 6 Nations.  From the Daily Mail.
And Dan Parks, our very animated play-maker.  I love it when this guy is on the pitch.  Again from the Daily Mail.

And just to round things out, my boys:

Girl, you make me laugh! You are to rugby what I am to Alabama football, namely, a fanatic fan! :) Glad you have something fun to watch over there.

it's true, barb, it's true. we are the same in that way, it's only the sport that differs. =)

pansies. the forwards are where the action is! flankers and number eights!

no, you're right. but because they are pansies, they keep their lovely looks. =D
