If you know G.....you know that he loves rugby. We actually live 10 minutes from where he went to college and also played rugby...Seton Hall. He has driven us through campus and we've seen his old dorm room. Fun stuff. For father's day...he chose to go to the rugby tournament that was playing in NJ. The Churchill Cup is a tournament...bringing teams from all over. We happened to watch the England vs Canada match.
The stadium was huge and the match....fantastic. Watching a rugby game is a combination
of watching a mini circus act, wrestling match, soccer and football...all in one. We all loved it!!
We got to experience some more of NJ as well.....buying tickets from some true NJ natives(picture the Sopranos) as we walked to the stadium. Of course, I can't simply buy tickets...I have to ask many questions. Is this legal?? To which they replied.....you aren't from around here are you? They talked fast and smooth....and I never did get an answer to my question?? We purchased the tickets while standing next to police....so either it is perfectly acceptable to do so....or it's just one of those things. I've shared that my boys are a bit "street naive"....momma is too!
We wanted to stay for the USA game as well.....but the boys were a bit tired (super hot day too!). Thankfully, we were able to watch it on tv when we got home. If you ever get the chance....check out a rugby game....very fun.
While working in Manhattan on Monday.....G called to tell me that he was chatting with one of Donald Trump's assistants. The company that G works for rents a building to the heliport that DT uses. While G was there.....The Donald flew in on a helicopter.....came out with 2 big bodyguards and some pieces of artwork. They all got in a big black SUV and drove off. Now me....I would have yelled...."excuse me Mr Trump......". I'm shy, but can be bold and chatty if I get a whim. Talking to strangers is something I enjoy. I would have had lots of questions for DT. Anyway......
