Dr. Feelgood

Feelgood story of the week - picked up from Stephen Jones' "Rolling Maul" column in The Times...

Flashback to the final round of matches in the Six Nations...Italy v Scotland...and rookie Scots flanker Alasdair Strokosch is awarded the "man of the match" award with Scotland holding a narrow lead going into the closing stages...seconds later Italy pop over a drop goal to win the match...following the final whistle Strokosch goes into the Italian dressing room and hands the bottle of champagne to Sergio Parisse - the man he felt really deserved it.

Pure class.

Nice story, Flanker. You sure would not see that from most of the guys in the NBA or NFL here in the States. That was a class thing to do on his part-also Parisse had a good Six Nations.

PS- survived playing the second half at Prop on Saturday. It was a good time, we won, and the match was really competed with a good spirit. Aside from some right knee stiffness and a tiny bit of neck soreness, I feel OK today.

A Scotsman giving away booze, a lesson indeed
