Windy, clear, cold day at 10 AM to start the 2015 campaign on the shores of Monterey Bay, the Otters’ pitch in perfect condition.

It was a try-fest, with several Bulldog backs tallying multiple scores.

My primary effort was directed at the new players who were oh-so-tempted to play the ball on the ground. Referees understand: many of us would still like to be able to play the ball ourselves.

The Otters had a post-game cheer about never giving up, in true rugby spirit. Up and at ’em!

My grandson Ben ran touch. Always a pleasure to have my favorite wingman. And there were freshly-grilled sideline quesadillas afterwards. Thanks to all for a fine start to a fine Saturday.
