mud, sweat and beers

Friday I wimped out on happy hour with a bunch of DC bloggers in lieu of a long princess nap. 1 1/2 hours tells me I needed it, so I was well rested for the Bob Mould Band concert at the 9:30 club. The music was great and I had lots of fun. TJ ("Mackasaurus rex") made it especially pleasant. >; ) Dumbek has a good rundown of some of the crowd and music here. Judging by the roar of the crowd during what Brettie told me was some of his old stuff, I wish I knew a bit more about Husker Du and Sugar songs. Regardless, it was also a good deal since it was a rather long set of songs. Daddy Rich Morel on the keyboards reminded me of Dr. Teeth. I guess that makes Bob more of a Janice, since he plays guitar, fer sure.

A tropical storm sat her soggy ass on the D.C. Metro area for two days, promising for a very wet rugby match on Saturday. She continued to pour throughout our two matches, the first against a low-down dirty-playin' head-cleatin' team from Winchester. Our A-side tied them 5-5 in a great match, a far cry from when they used to run us over in the double digits. Next year, cupcakes. I played scrumhalf on the B-side match against the Philly gay team. No cleat mashing from Philly, but I got a nice testicle yank from one guy. Bitch, please...I used to date the president of Men of Discipline and did a workshop on CBT - save it for after the match.

The mud was so wet it didn't really stick. It was more like a thick tea by the time we were playing. I'm glad I get a tetanus shot every year.
Philly improves every time we play them. Our B-side lost, but I forget the score.
Our scrums rarely hatched the egg for Scrummy Jimbo.
It was a fun 3rd half social which included a Kangaroo Court. Can you find the product placement in this photo? (photo creds to Brettie)

All I'm-a-gonna say is that Jimbo is a man of his word. Was fun ;-) Bob Mould's music makes the people come together. Or something like that. When is his next show in DC?

I bet Rugby is better in the mud and rain, too bad it is not shirts vs. skins. Great action pic, the kinetic feeling is captured really well.

It actually looks fun, but after reading tales of cleats on heads, I'd probably prefer watching.

Maybe your "ball teaser" was taking a page from this guy? Or maybe he was hitting on you and he couldn't come up with the right words? Your such a nice Wisconsin boy, I'm sure you wouldn't have thoughts of disemboweling him like I would.
