Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
The U of Michigan Rugby Club has been invited to participate in the Collegiate Rugby "Sevens" Championship tournament in Philadelphia May 31 and June 1.
This tournament is nationally televised on NBC and this will be the first time that M has participated.
This tournament will feature the seven a side game which will also be the version of the sport that will be played in the 2016 Olympics.For those unfamiliar with "Sevens" Rugby. Games are played on a regulation size field with seven on each side as opposed to 15 as side in the traditional game. Each half is seven minutes long - it is a track meet.
Although not as replete with men in blazers as a bowl game, there is a similar catch to M's participation. The club is responsible for the sale of 350 tickets to the event. While most of those have been purchased, the club is still short.
For those of you in the Philly area (or even NY or DC) this is a great, inexpensive way to support U of M at an exciting nationally televised event.
If you are going to purchase tickets - please use this link so the M Rugby Club gets credit for the tickets.
As an alum of the M Rugby club I thought I would do my part in spreading the word to those of you who either like rugby or who like to beat Ohio at anything.
The UM Rugby Club is in a race against the Ohio Rugby Club to reach 2000 followers.

I have no idea what's going on. The announcers don't help, even if they are speaking some form of English. Anybody else watching?
Check out the video embedded in this article, which some believe may be the longest drop goal in Rugby history.
Michigan women's rugby team is currently 2-0 in the midwest d1 conference, with wins over grand valley and indiana. they play michigan state this saturday, oct 17, at north field (on plymouth road just northeast of north campus... to the north -- directions on the Michigan women's rugby team website). last year they finished #2 in midwest d2, so this is a big season for the ladies.
my cousin is on the team, and since i won't be in the a2 area at all for the rest of the season, i told her i'd post a thread on here to drum up some support.
so go see a game!
ESPN2: Can 6, USA 6. Rugby.
I have no idea what this is about or what's going on, but it's awesome.
