Now I will definitely need to change the title of this blog. A friend is encouraging me to come out for practice with a Brooklyn-based rugby team, which means that if a potential teammate sees this blog, his first thought will probably be: "Eh? What's the deal? Is this guy supposed to be really good?" (Imagine, also, that he has an Irish accent.)
The truth is, I am neither awesomely bad enough nor good enough to merit "try-stopper" as an appropriate nickname (especially if I give it to myself), much like how "Slugger" makes sense either for Jose Canseco or for Little Jimmy, but probably not for a collegiate player.
