Saturday at the Sevens: South Stand Streetfighter Edition
To break down the three day event, Friday is the warm up, Saturday is the serious party, and Sunday is the serious rugby. I don't know where the tradition of dressing up in costumes came from, but I'll take it! There were a lot of Black Swans, a lot of Mexicans (it was Mexico's debut at the event), a lot of Angry Birds, and a lot of Prince Williams and Kates. The people watching alone is worth it!
Well at least in the civilized world I found some very civilized friends! Hey girls! I was also very happy to see my friend Cathy who moved back to Chicago but was back in town for the week. Yay visitors!
And just like that, we completed day 2 at the 7s. Some were sent home early. Some took a three hour nap in the bathroom. I just wanted dinner!
