Did you know that in the Kansas City area we have rowing. Rowing? Yes, it is not just an east coast sport.
The Kansas City Rowing Club is made up of experienced and novice rowers, men and women, adults and high schoolers. It truly is a beautiful sport to watch. Our daughter began rowing her Sophomore year in high school. She has gained the experience of a sport she may do the rest of her life along with calloused hands and overall fitness. This is a sport a mother can watch...unlike rugby.
Yes, Kansas City also has Rugby. Having lived in KC since 1968, I had no idea that either sport exsisted here...but they do and with great following. As I said, rowing is a beautiful sport to watch. Rugby is not. This is not a sport for mothers to watch. To the best of my understanding, rubgy is like football without the pads. Unlike rowing, rugby is not a sport you can play as you get older. In one game I witnessed a player being hit so hard that an ambulance was needed to remove him PLUS my son's friend tore his ACL. No, this is not a sport for mothers to watch.
