The Pittsburgh Angels Are Cool

Big ups to the Pittsburgh Angels women’s rugby team, after finishing second in the championship. From here:

“We beat Albany 5-3 in the semi-finals.

Due to a wild card system in the semi-finals, we had to again face Raleigh in the Finals, whom we beat the day before.

This time we lost 12-0.

Our team played hard. Very. But we’re okay – last time, 4th; this time 2nd. It’s all good.

Just wait for next year.”

I’ve seen like one or two rugby practices, and a handful of games (matches? bouts?) on tv, and each time I can’t imagine myself doing that. Which makes it cool that our city can boast a premier, hard-nosed women’s team that hangs around championship games like it’s nothing.

And “just wait for next year.”
