News, but not the serious kind
Nobody booed, and the players were nude?
Okay, Blog Guy, it’s been two weeks since you wrote about any stupid sports. You must have something by now.
Hey, rugby may be foreign, but it’s not stupid!
It is when you play it naked, like the Nude Blacks of New Zealand.
Naked rugby! Who do they play against?
Last weekend they played a female Spanish team. The women wore clothes, as you can see here, and they played before a crowd of 1,500 people.
Yikes! That does sound really stupid. I’m curious, how many news photos of something as insane as that would you send out?

Good for you, Blog Guy. So why do you think they came up with Naked Rugby, anyway?

Oh, just the perennial New Zealand sports problem of a streaker. This one was fully clothed.
So. Naked Rugby. I’ll bet the players must find that exciting, huh?
Lord, I hope not!
