Bit of an update. My eldest son is still enjoying the game. His high school team was defeated as they took part in the local championships (ranked about #8 now) but they are hopeful that they can do better next year.
And its been 2 months now since my youngest (age 10) joined the local elementary schoolers rugby league. Also about 1 month since my wife injured her back (ouch!) in rugby practice. The 4th grader mothers have to play against their sons in February.
Yes, even the wife played, though only one day. Even a shorter career then Ben!
All we need to do now is buy a bit of stock in Canterbury, given that they seem to be acquiring quite a bit of our money...
"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
