It's Rugby Season!!!

My friends, this is a very special weekend for me. As a matter of fact it is a special weekend for millions of people throughout the sporting world! No, not because of the (yawn) Superbowl, but because this weekend, holds the opening of the Super 14 tournament in the southern hemisphere, and the opening of the Six Nations tournament in Europe.

That's right... it's RUGBY SEASON! Time for your pal Gunfighter to watch and enjoy The Game They Play in Heaven!

For those of you that aren't familiar with Rugby please use the link above and see my explanation of the game from last summer... you'll get some idea of what I am talking about.

Rugby is the hardest hitting and most athletic team sport in the world. Check it out:

I dunno deejay... do you think Wilko will be enough to make it happen for England?

Tasha said...

It's a great thing...from football to rugby. My two favorite (spectator) sports.

I really gotta start watching this. Since I am a few days behind, is this still on? Which channel?

If you subscribe to DirecTv the channel is available.

The channel is called Setanta sports... it is an Irish satellite channel featuring Rugby, Soccer, Hurling, and Gaelic football.
