After the rugby, the drinking

Rugby is thirsty work

My world


Well you have all seen the images of the Rugby matches dotted about the blog, but what about afterwards? What happens when the game is done? It's drinks of course in the clubhouse. These lads were the chosen few downing yards of ale and such like for dubious or not so honours such as "Man of the Match" etc. As you can see along with the game, this is also what we call here a spectator sport. Also good for the thirsty photographer, because yes photography is thirsty work, to gain a few extra after the main event images too. What you thought I just went home after the match? Don't be silly there is drink on offer. Be rude not to partake of the odd glass of cider would it not? Yes that is rhetorical. Also gives me an opportunity to show you people of Ramsey which seems to be what you most want to see here, after sunsets, beaches and woods. So today that's what you get a completely random image taken by a drunken photographer who has supposedly put the camera down after her work is done. No such thing. There is always something, someone to photograph and the best social documentary images are the ones you get when you socialize, not work. More my world images can be seen here

Can you drink a yard of ale though?

A yard of ale would be one tall glass!

Mojo said...

Heh. I took the pledge 10 years ago, never looked back. But I completely agree with your point about the camera never actually being turned off. (I don't deal well with "moderation", which is why I can burn through an entire 8Gb CF card in an afternoon. Also why I had to give up the bottle... lest I die.)

But I think I know this game. Looks vaguely familiar anyway.

Dear Babooshka, If I drank a yard of ale, I'd be pouring the stuff over my head like the guy in red!

Dirkjogt said...

Drinking and sports, you can't have one without the other :-)

Babooshka: That second guy from the end completely missed his mouth, must have spilt a few drops.

Leif Hagen said...

Did anyone drink a yard of the "hard stuff?"

Anonymous said...

I could.

Stine in Ontario said...

I agree that some of the best photos are the candid ones. Glad you enjoyed the fun after the game.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, what a fun shot, Babooshka! Definitely would have liked to have been there! Seriously doubt that I could down a yard of ale, but I'm willing to try!

Have a great week!

Sylvia

I get tipsy after a few ounces. No yard for me. You'd have to carry me home. And then help me through the hangover the next day.

Tanya said...

They look like some fun guys to hang out with! I think I drank a yard of Ale on Halloween night and didn't feel so great!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I like beer but I don't think that I could finish off a yard.

Snap said...

Too funny! A yard --- no way!

Tim said...

A yard of orange maybe. Great people shot.

Rob Inukshuk said...

Once upon a time I would have, but now I prefer to watch...and take the pics!

Fun post, showing post game activities!

Carver said...

That's a fun shot. As to drinking a yard of ale, I doubt it. Perhaps once apon a time in days gone by . . .

Wren said...

I'd enjoy the party even if I couldn't finish a yard of ale without help. It's the perfect way to end game day - you celebrate if you win, you drown your sorrows if you lose.

Cloudia said...

Aye!



Aloha, Friend

magiceye said...

you sure are right about 'photography makes one thirsty'!!

Ann said...

Same here in NZ, after the match, they drink crazy.

You coming to Auckland for the world cup?

A said...

When's the world cup luv. I'll be in New Zealand ripping it up.

Jim K said...

A yard? I may have a drink or two, but not on a chair, I would fall off.

Hi

As that you are into photography, I thought that you may be interested in a monthly blog posting that I started in July called "5 on the fifth" where you take 5 random photographs on the fifth of the month and post them to your own blog and then post a comment on MY blog with your name, location and link to your site - I then update my blog entry so the world has your link.

Interested?

Here's a link to my blog

and a link to the last "5 on the fifth" entry

Babooshka? Oh Babooshka?! Where are you, Babooshka?!

Lisa Wilson said...

mrsnesbitt said...

Wonderful stuff! I wonder what the price of a pint will be in TT fortnight? Better get a mortgage sorted!

Mo said...

Are you coming back????

Nice post as for me. I'd like to read more about that topic.
BTW check the design I've made myself Overnight escorts

Rob said...

Not so sure I could drink a yard of ale, but I'm willing to give it a shot. Anything to help out the team.

Deslilas said...

C'est la fameuse troisième mi-temps.
That's the well known third half part of the game.

Virginia said...

Get off your duff and show us some stuff B! We miss you.

I haven't visited here for quite awhile. Dunno why!! But I see you still take great photos and you are still keeping everyone on the edge of their seats--so to speak. MB

Kim said...

Babooshka,
I'm a bit out of touch checking in with other blogs, but I have noticed a stillness in your direction. Where are you? Your absence is conspicuous and I thought I'd duck in to see if you are okay. I am wishing you well, whatever it is that keeps you from the CDPB community lately. I'm sure others wonder as well. When you come up for air, leave a few words and let us know what's cooking with you.
Best,
-Kim

Louis la Vache said...

Oh, Babooshka! Babooshka! Where's our Babooshka?

Marie said...
