Yes, I played quad rugby, for about a year. Four years into my injury, I met a couple of guys at RIC and they introduced me to the sport when I wasn’t working or doing anything. It was great, it was a great sport. Strengthened me up, got me tougher, and it was great, I miss it, I really do, I miss it. Quad rugby is almost like American football; it’s soccer, it’s a rough sport, I mean. We crash, we hit each other, it’s a great sport but it’s pretty rough; it’s not for the faint of heart, but I enjoy it. I mean, you let out a lot of aggression you know, being in the wheelchair, you feel aggressive, so as men, we like to get out and let it out sometimes.
