I was going to post more pics, but i have the most exciting news!! My good friend Jez Warburton is a firefighter in Wales. We met years ago through a site set up for a mutual rock star friend. Jez and i became fast friends, and He was a great support for me through my divorce, Jez is a sweet sweet man who is dedicated to his family. He has a wife, Carolyn, and 3 grown children, his daughter Holly who is married and his twin sons Ben and Sam.
Ben and Sam love Rugby (doesnt everyone in Europe?) They played high school Rugby, then at college. I remember well the day in high school Jez got the boys a Total Gym for their birthday.
Well, Ben went on to be a physiotherapist. Sam was tapped to play Rugby for the Cardiff Blues in Wales. He played so well the Wales National team picks him often for games (its not like here where the same players play EVERY game...they are chosen each game.)
Sam played last year as a young member, filling the shoes of one of the most well known and loved players there. This year, he was picked last week for the Wales/England play off match and played brilliantly. This week he was picked again for the Wales/Scotland playoff game. They CREAMED Scotland..and..the best news of all..Sam was named Man of the Game!! Think..Superbowl MVP and thats what this is. I am so proud of him..and happy for Jez and Carolyn and the family!!
heres a picture of Sam with his medal (on the left) WELL DONE SAM!!!
