A Triumph in the Minor Leagues

Ethan made the apt observation that watching the USA defeat Canada and then almost immediately watching the All Blacks v Lions made the minor league status of the American accomplishment clear. Still, it was a good win, and both brothers enjoyed that. Jake pushed Ethan to pick a favorite player, and gauged Ethan's attitude toward the financial promise of rugby in America.

A Tie That Is Still a Loss

Jake catches Ethan up on rugby news and the brothers react to the first leg of the home-and-away USA Canada series.

The brothers were in agreement, though, in the value in a recent Deadspin guide to rugby.

Respect the Kicker? Nah!

Conventional Wisdom--at least according to Jake--held that the Munster v Saracens semi-final was a kick-fest that lacked flair. Ethan's reaction showed the power of being unaware of Conventional Wisdom. This episode is more evidence that Ethan isn't getting sucked into off-field story lines and what can happen when all a fan pays attention to is what happens on the pitch for 80 minutes.
