Greetings Sports Fans and Athletic Supporters:
Come join us Under the Bleachers for Episode 26 - Three Cheers For Nigel Owens
This week it’s Gabe’s turn to pick the topics and he chose:
For Our Discussion of All Things Queer, updates to the ban on blood donations;
For Our Discussion of All Things Sports, high school boys behaving badly;
And, For Our Discussion of the Intersection of Sports and Queer, we’ll discuss the retirement of rugby referee and LGBTQ icon, Nigel Owens.
After that, we are going to share Team DC’s conversation with 2 players from DC’s professional rugby team, Old Glory DC. In this conversation, representatives of four area rugby clubs, all Team DC Member Clubs, had an opportunity to ask questions of Old Glory co-captain Thretton Palamo and player Jamason Faanana Schultz.
