    My calves are still hurting me and now all of my "injury prone" parts are acting up. Not making me want to go out on a long ride.
    Ugh. Sometimes I think it's not worth being fit .
    Got the compression things on my calves again, stretching, and hoping my back feels better, too. Thinking I feel like a massage.

    Well as long as we're on sports, RIP Marco Simoncelli. That's the most shocking news I've woken up to in a long time, and I'm just reeling.



    ETA: and just in case anyone might mistake it, obviously I understand that Sico's death is inconsequential in the scale of the world. I meant shocking in terms of the combination of sudden, unexpected, happening in a horrific manner, and directly impacting people a few of whom I know personally and many of whom I've at least spoken to or been in the same room with, in a sport I follow and enjoy.

    I saw the start ... and the end. I can't find film of the haka at this game yet but boy howdy if I was the opponent and saw this I'd run.

    WOW, that was pure testosterone! So did they win? I also note the lack of padding and protective armor, I don't know anything about Rugby but I am quite sure I would be running with you!

    Right; no padding, gloves or helmets, none of this run for 5 seconds and go to the sidelines to suck oxygen, no "the defense looks tired but they've been out there nearly the whole quarter", no half time break that I could see ...

    And the women's team:

    LOL! My father likes to say that American football is like rugby for nancies.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    Us

    The US has a rugby team & was represented at this year's event & in the same pool as Australia & Ireland...http://www.rugbyworldcup.com/

    Yes, NZ won ...barely but they won!!! I had two very frightened gents watching it with me & I didn't want to have to console them..again!!!

    Actually, some of the rugby players do wear a bit of padding but not much!!! It's a hard man's sport & there's a reason many of the players don't really have much of a neck..

    Another cool thing..the Silver Ferns(NZ women's netball team) beat the Australians last night!!! http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news...ectid=10761227

    I got invited to the Old Girls tournament, where alums play the current team. Went to watch and got asked if I wanted to play, looked at the girl who asked and busted out laughing "honey, I'm 51 years old, you gals would break me in half in the first scrum".

    My honey accepted a job offer this morning!!!!!!

    This means NO MOVE, we get to stay in our cute little affordable house, I don't have to hunt for a new job someplace else, and we have as much financial security as anyone could ask for. I'm so relieved I could cry.
