Golden Oldies

I'm just back from Petone Rec, where lots of old fellas were running around after an oval ball. Oval? I don't think the ball was oval. Elongated perhaps.

It is some rugby thing. Hadyn wrote about it on the Wellingtonista.

There were blokes from all nations. While I haven't watched much rugby since pretending for a year solid I was really into it - to make Glen fall in love with me (which was 11 years ago now) - I do like the smell of liniment and lots character. Those teams had both by the bucket load.

Clearly not as interesting as the round ball game we play down at The Shed of Dreams . . . .
