I don't know how I got away the previous few years without ever attending the actual event. But here we are, Friday and Day One of the Rugby 7s.
After work I ran over to meet my friends at the stadium. I've never been there but it's a great venue.
The first Team USA game was vs Japan, and believe me, we got some seriously dirty looks for cheering on USA. We knew what everyone was thinking, but someone actually said out loud: Do you know what they've been through???? Yes, we live in Asia and we are completely aware. Of course I don't want Japan to lose. But I would take a bullet for my country and I can cheer for no other than USA! USA! (yep. this is why they hate us)
