Nobody will disagree that the 2011 USA Sevens in Las Vegas was a groundbreaking event.
Not only did our Boys win their first tournament in two years, but tournament organisers managed to pique the interest of corporate America as well as network television. The live broadcast of the USA Sevens by NBC’s Universal Sports will stand the game in the America in good stead, especially with the 2011 Rugby World Cup looming.
Tournament organisers sent out an e-mail this week thanking all the fans for their support of this year’s event.
However, BlitzBokke.com would like to say to Tournament Director Dan Lyle and his team:
Right back at Ya!
After the excitement and enthusiasm of any tournament we often forget to doff our proverbial hats to the team who has made it all possible. They are, after all, also the people who have to clean up and wrap up after the fans have left the stands as well as almost immediately start the planning for next year.
Thank you Vegas…
Hopefully we’ll see you at the Sam Boyd Stadium next year.
