High school flashback

First I heard the USA 7's Collegiate Rugby Championship is coming to PPL Park in Chester the first weekend in June, then I found out that one of former favorite bands, Yellowcard, will be appearing at the event as well.

I played rugby my junior and senior year of high school and was given the opportunity to play in a high school level 7's Rugby tournament the second year. That day was probably one of the most exciting in my short rugby career, and I've wanted to attend a tournament ever since (for those of you that don't know much about the sport, the 7's matches are much faster and a total blast to play in).

I was also a huge fan of Yellowcard in my high school days. I got to seem them live at the Electric Factory in Philadephia my senior year (courtesy of my father winning me tickets from the no longer existing Y100 - was one of the BEST concerts ever), and listened to them constantly before practice or a Sunday match.

While I haven't listened to them much lately, the news of this awesome sporting event with Yellowcard headlining a concert has thrown me right back into them. It also has me sending my father a text immediately to talk buying tickets. And whether you're a rugby fan or not, I suggest you consider attending the event as well - at least you'll have the opportunity to see Yellowcard live, too.
