Those of you who know me, Frances (Grace), know I love rugby. Many people ask "How did you become a rugby fan?" A few years ago at Ticketmaster, Allison (Merritt) and I worked with USA Rugby to promote a tour. After the project I thought, "Wow, this seems pretty cool...different than American football but similar in the thrill of the competition and skilled athleticism." (I am ALSO a huge Broncos fan!) I love going to rugby matches at Infinity Park and feel like I'm part of a growing number of fans.

MY BAGS ARE PACKED FOR THE USA v. ALL BLACKS MATCH IN CHICAGO THIS WEEKEND!! It's great to see the sport growing in America and I look forward to seeing the USA Eagles with thousands of other rugby fans at Soldier Field. If you've never checked out rugby before, take a quick break to watch a couple of my favorite clips:
