Last night after rugby, my teammate Chris had a dead battery in her car. I have had a lot of experience with dead batteries so I was really excited when Chris said, "Hey! Can you give me a jump?" I pulled up, Chris hooked up the cables, I revved the engine a few times, and she was all set to go. But the best part was that three or four of my other teammates stuck around to make sure everything was ok.
They weren't there because it took ten girls to jump a battery or anything like that. They were there to make sure nobody was stuck alone after dark in Carrick. It was awesome. I just really liked the feeling of teamwork, and how it extended even off the field. I don't even know why it all feels so powerful--it was just a few ladies sticking around while Chris hooked some cables up to the Nissan. I guess I just love knowing that because of my sport, a worldwide rugby network has my back. Everywhere, all the time, no matter what. Who doesn't love that?
