The team was racially mixed and their best player was a dark-skinned 6-foot-3, 230-pound African and after the game when I asked him his name he said in a clear British accent, "My name is Gordon." I don't know what I ex- pected, but I didn't expect dark- skinned, English-accented Gor- don. Last Sunday I saw three young African-American athletes watch- ing the Washington Old Boys bat- tle the Wilmington Old Boys. I took their picture and asked them if they knew why and they indi- cated they probably did and so commenced the line of question- ing. The Washington Youth Rug- by association had about 50 mem- bers from inner-city Washington D.C. Marcus Wood, 32, played at Arclabishop Carroll High School and James Madison. He learned the sport from Robert."Bo" Neu- some who was playing in the Old Boys game. "We started an under-14 club back in 2004," Wood said. "A 15- minute documentary was made I II about us just because it's not the typical sport played by black kids from the inner city. There is al- ways redemption on the field and great camaraderie after the games," Woods added. DROPPED LIKE BAD HABIT - Four women rugby teams were at the Atlantic Cup rugby tournament last weekend. From a field away I saw a tall and graceful back accept a lateral, sidestep a few would-be tackles and then gracefully gallop for the end zone. But not so fast! A Maryland Ex- ile appeared like a parade ground deer from the deep woods and dropped that Severn Renegade like a care package with no para- chute. I haven't seen a tackle that perfect in 10 years of NFL foot- ball. I watched the women play and I forgot they were women, which is probably not a good thing. But, seriously, the game was the same and so was the crazy contact that ruggers relish. I concluded that women's sports with all the con- stricting rules to protect girls needs to back off because girls just want to.have fun just like boys. SNIPPETS  - "Bunchers" are ." people who steal dogs and sell them mostly at flea markets for $10 to $20 a dog to human dirt- bags who kennel them inhumanly before selling them to research laboratories providing they don't shoot the dogs for sport in the in- terim. I watched a documentary at 4 a.m. filmed by an undercover, 25- year-old Arkansas man not be- cause I couldn't sleep, but rather I can sleep whenever I want. I think Michael Vick has done more to help the cause of dogs than all the damage thug lifers and creepy crackers have done over the last decade. There is just no way Vick will play another down in the NFL. Hanging, drowning and electro- cuting wet dogs? If I was a play- er and he came to my team I would walk out and if I had to stay out then so be it. Please, no more weather bun- nies reporting from the sixth floor of a Jamaican inland hotel during a category 4 storm. Go down to the beach and get in the water and watch your career take off and we will watch it too on high definition. Go on now, git! ties A.C. Milan's Tom Grogan for possession of the ball.
