Even though I cannot see all of Alex's game anymore, I do get lucky enough to scope out some pictures now and then from generous local New Mexico photographers. Here's a set from a couple of weeks ago when they played their first game of the winter/spring season. Alex played 70 minutes at scrum half... Continue Reading →
The Kid is Alright – Albuquerque Weekend
A much needed visit to New Mexico to check in on Alex. Texting & weekend phone calls just weren't enough especially since we dropped him off on Aug 17th and he wont be back in town until Dec 13th. I needed a visual in between those four months! The weekend was just perfect. I landed... Continue Reading →
*We interrupt this Salt Lake City set of posts in progress - these photos were too rich not to share right away!* While I was in SLC, Alex's rugby team drove in to Tuscon, Arizona to play U of A in rugby. Both squads have enough players on hand to have both an A and... Continue Reading →

U-T 10/20 – First race of 2014
But first: Saturday there was a quite the tense rugby match. Alex never got on the field, and he did not care. They won 13-9 against a team from Long Beach who had won at this level the last 2 years. The starters played nearly all 70 minutes, and it showed. Both teams were so... Continue Reading →
