Only 5 hours until the first major challenge of Sober February. Wales vs England kicks starts the six nations tournament. For you Americans, who may not know about it, it’s an annual international Rugby Union tournament between England, France, Ireland, Italy, Wales and Scotland.
Luckily, I’m currently living in England so there isn’t too much hype about getting drunk while watching it. A bit different from when I was at university in Wales, where it’s the main sporting event of the year. Rugby being their national sport. And they traditionally go out and get drunk to celebrate winning or commiserate losing. When they play England it’s doubly so. “I don’t care as long as we beat the English.” can be heard quite a lot.
However, this year I sense I’m going to find a difficulty gathering people to watch it. Though hopefully enough people will be wanting to watch it for it to be on in a pub somewhere.
Now, to ring people and arrange watching 30 20-stone men beat each other up.
