Crazy Snow Rugby

©2010 Chicago Tribune/Alex Garcia

Members of a high school academy rugby team mix it up during a scrimmage at Garfield Park on an early morning before school. I came upon it while driving around for features. The scene had all the makings of the kind of crazy-rough-ball-chasing-crazy-blizzard pictures that one hopes for in a sports picture, so I was delighted when it started and a little bummed when the scrimmage itself ended after about five-ten minutes.  But after an hour of drills, the kids were fuh-fuh-fuh-reeeeezing, so I was glad to see they would be getting some warm relief – even though it was to the expense of more dramatic snow pictures…
