Success for Nursedude

When he's not busy "tagging" me, it seems that our friend Nursedude has been occupying himself on the rugby field recently, turning out for the first time since last May for the Metropolis B team in Minneapolis against Madison RFC at the weekend.

Nursedude played loosehead prop for the second half - and not only did he emerge with only a little knee stiffness and neck soreness, he also managed to finish on the winning team, something I've not experienced since the autumn of 1993. Seriously.

Hi Flanker, thanks so much for the kind shout- out. As I am writing this, we have just got about 4inches of snow in Minneapolis-and it's STILL snowing. My hope is that by this weekend, the snow will have melted so that our B squad game in Rochester will still happen. The A squad will have different concerns in their playoff game on Saturday in Atlanta-much hotter and more humid weather to run around for 80 minutes. Meeting cool people like you, Matt, Ferdy,Blondie, Wendy and Sportsfreak on the Blogosphere has been just a blessing.

Sticking my picture in with the blog entry, Flanker? I don't know if I should thank you because it's an honor to be mentioned on your wonderful blog, or if you will recieve messages from upset rugby fans after having had their appetite's ruined by seeing my mug. Cheers!

PS-what are your pics for the H-Cup for this weekend?

The complaints are already flooding in Nursedude...:)

As for the Heineken Cup - I'd say Toulouse, Ospreys, Munster and L.Irish will be the semi finalists (although Ospreys and Munster will need to play out of their skins to win away at Saracens and Gloucester respectively).

3 out of 4 on your picks is pretty impressive. I thought Ospreys would win, too-Still, a pretty good weekend of work by the English clubs with two making it through to the Semi finals.

I'm delighted for Saracens (who are my local big club) - their season looked as if it was fading badly but this just might kick start it again. If the Sarries pack are on song I certainly wouldn't rule them out against Munster...
