Yesterday I witnessed my first girls rugby game. I was invited to the game by my friend Tori who I have known since she was in grade school. She is just as lovely now as she has ever been and she plays rugby for the Essex Hornets. It was a good game, they played hard, they tore up the field, they hit hard, they hurt each other and at the end of it they walked off the muddy field smiling. After all that my lasting impression of this experience will forever be... they are all such sweet girls.
