I wasn't a great player. As a matter of fact, I broke my nose in my very first rugby game. I ran into a player from my own team. In my defense, though, I showed up for one practice and they put me in the game the very next day. I had no idea what I was doing!
As the years went on, I got better. Especially after they took me out of the scrum. What the hell was I doing in the scrum? Look at me, I must have been all of 120 pounds then! I did score once or twice, on the field. I think I even scored a time or two off.
One thing we always said about our team, "We may not win the game, but we always win the party." If you've ever been to a rugby party, then you know what I'm talking about.
