A great way to start off the week, as my Michigan Wolverines ended up splitting the Big Ten title with the Buckeyes and Spartans in basketball. Would’ve been nicer to take the title solo, but I’ll take what I can get with regard to this, especially considering how weak the Wolverines were as a basketball team prior to John Beilein’s arrival. Go Blue!
In addition to this, I should be prepping my cover ideas with Sanjana (my new cover artist) in the next few days or so. For those of you new to the world of the Vein and to my blog, I was having a little difficulty in getting a steady and reliable cover artist (I had this same problem with girls in high school…). A fellow online author recommended Sanjana to me, and so far the ball has been rolling pretty good! I’m looking forward to what she puts together!
But the main point of today’s post is to talk about the new love of my life. Something I’ve admired from a distance, but have come to fully embrace with enthusiastic passion now.
That’s right. If you like football but have never given rugby a chance, I would strongly encourage you to do so. It’s a great game, very physical, and constantly moving (unlike football). A week and a half ago my son, my mom and I sat down to watch a game (my wife and daughter were busy partying it up with a “girls only” slumber party for my daughter’s birthday. No boys allowed: that was fine with me 😀 ). Great game, Worcester vs Saracen. The Warriors came out on top.
Recently I’ve signed up with a rugby forum, so you may see me lurking around there from time to time, although I don’t have nearly as much time to post and read on forums as I would like to have. That whole working-writing-eating-family thing tends to be demanding on time. 😉 If you like contact sports, or just sports in general, but haven’t given rugby a look-see, check it out!
And finally, as always, a welcome and shout out to those of you taking their first steps into the Vein and becoming first-time readers of my works! I welcome you, and hope to hear from you!
See you in the Vein!
