It's better than Hollywood, it's Mollywood

Rudy (the Remake)

15. March 2010 | Kategorie Uncategorized

I just want everyone reading this to take a moment and picture the scenes from the movie loved by all (even if they don’t know it yet) entitled Rudy. Picture the scenes that make you laugh, the ones that make you angry, even they ones that make you cry. Remember the joy of seeing Rudy’s dad’s face when his boy final got to play. Image being in Rudy’s spot and constantly being told that he just wasn’t good enough and then finally getting the chance he worked so hard for. Just let the totally awesomeness of that whole movie soak in.

Now I want you to forget all about Rudy the “original” or “classic”, because this is something almost completely different. One day Rudy (the Remake) is going to be a movie about, yes, you guessed it, me. Why you ask? Because I am in Rugby club now! Yes, the producers of the new film will have to trade football for rugby, men for women, Notre Dame for SDSU, and talent for who knows what, but the concept is loosely the same. I am someone who is too little to do a lot of things, like reach the top shelf in any store, but I am really stubborn and by gosh am IN that Rugby club.

I do have a long and bruised road ahead of me, but I am so completely excited. I have already gone to my first practice and am still alive AND still in the club. That’s right. They haven’t kicked me out. Yet. I have already gotten a floor burn from practicing in a gym for my first practice, a bruised thigh from getting stepped on while in the bottom of the ruck, and a little bit of a black eye from getting elbowed in the face while practicing the defensive drills. I say a “little bit of a black eye” because its more like my upper cheek and only spreads up toward my eye. No biggy, just call me hard core. On Tuesday, we are having our first outdoor practice, which means I am going to be really cold and muddy, but still totally optimistic.

I am slowly getting the rules and concepts down and have done some extensive research. By extensive I mean, I googled rugby and looked at some videos on youtube. It should be really fun though. I have all the equipment I need currently. All I need to do is pay my club due and it is totally official! The best part will be playing other clubs in the area. I know, we actually get to play other teams, how cool. I hope I get play time! But if I want this movie thing to pan out maybe I don’t want play time, so that when I finally do it will make for a better movie. No, I want the play time. The writers can just exaggerate the plot a little.

    I have a friend who played Rugby at his college in a club setting. Pretty brutal! Good luck.
