In one of the Bruno Chief of Police books he states that Rugby can expose national characteristics.

He teaches the young people of St. Denis the game.  Here are some of his takes on national play.

England:  Grind it out in the mud.  Means if the English like American football, they like smash mouth rivalries.  Think Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers.

Wales:  The quick back running up the field.

Scotland:  The charge at the enemy.  Think Pickett’s Confederates at Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg.

Ireland:  Playing by stealth.  Bruno went such is similar for France.

I wonder where New Zealand’s All Blacks and South Africa’s Springboks would fall in this?

So there is your sociological lesson, thanks to Bruno.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
