Glendale is absolutely on my list of away games to go to next season, so we will hit you up! I also have a LOT of burningman friends in Colorado, as well. So I'll need to plan several days, it seems...

And hey... the Raptors will get into it again. They just burned out the clutch the first season, and need to do some work in the off-season to get back in shape again. They'll do it.

yah man... lots of burners in Denver... I wonder if the ones I know, know some of the ones you know... or maybe even know you! six degrees of goobster.

You know... I watched a fair amount of rugby in college (had a friend on the team) and have watched a bit since, but now that my kids play - I am loving it again. And watching my kids' team play on the raptors field for the championship game (which they won in overtime and was amazing) just made me want to attend their games. I didn't even realize we had a pro team until this season. Getting amped for next year. And SUPER looking forward to watching the national championship game if I can find it.

EDIT: I know you didn't ask... but if you want to watch a few minutes of REALLY exciting rugby...

Regulation time expired in a tie. First five minute overtime period ended in a tie. Time is running out fast in the second 5 minute overtime period... then this... hmmm. begin at link didn't work. hit the 1:42:38 mark:

That was a great bit of rugby! Those kids are BRINGIN' IT, man. What a way to win.

As far as Colorado Burners go, Lavendyr used to be my girlfriend, and Captain Ron and I ran Happy Camp together for many years. So yeah... we know the same people! :-)
