I was browsing the internet, and I was interested in the game Rugby, so I went to google to find some snapshots of the game, only to find this:

So tell Gordon, tell me, how was Rugby?

Hey Gordan,

Have you ever played Rugby before? I hear they play in Europe much more than do here in North America? And also is your name popular in the UK?

lol - tis Gorden on steroids! Ruby can be pretty rough, aka getting flipped in the air by someone at 6ft 2, being only 5ft 3 at the time lol.

It is a fun game, and it is pretty popular in the UK, but obviously not to the extent on football, but I'd say one of the top 3 sports in the UK.

Rugby's massive out here in NZ with the All Blacks... but I don't play!

PS - yep, there's quite a few Gordons and Laings, especially in Scotland which is where my family is from...

It's a fun game, and a lot less stop-start than American football - when somebody is tackled, play continues while both teams try to push the other team back so they can get the ball. Also, it is against the rules to obstruct a player who doesn't have the ball, and to pass forward.

I play rugby, being a welsh lad and all. Rugby is big here in wales.

Ice hockey is my favoret game but this is probably the equivalent to rugby in north america, not very popular at all.
