I reconstructed the Rugby post.
An American's view of Rugby
I was watching rugby the other day. It doesn't make much sense!
They line up much like they do in American Football. Hike the ball, then the quarterback, or guy who gets the ball hiked to him hands the round, overly round football, to the tailback or guy standing behind him.
This man runs straight forward allowing the defense to tackle him.
He doesn't just get tackled, for the whole defense takes turn's jumping on top of the guy until every person on the team are on top of him.
The reasons for this is not clear. But I thought about it, coming to the conclusion that the whole reason for the game is to jump on top of the Halfback (volunteer) and burst his spleen, and of course ending with beer.
The individual teams meet before the game to get a volunteer to be the halfback. This is only fair seeing that his spleen will be burst.
The game continues handing off to each sides halfback until one of the halfback's spleen bursts.
Once this happens the game breaks up at which point they retire to the bar or pub for beer. Actually being the halfback is a desirable position for the reason that the guy with the burst spleen gets free beer.
In light of the beer, it makes complete sense. A brilliant game altogether.
