No Angry ref this week folks. The ref needed a bit of well deserved R & R. And according to the folks over at Ralph Lauren, everyone has rugby to thank for spring break.
Before Spring Break became...well..Spring break, its was actually called Rugby Week for a select few Ivy Leaguers. In 1935 the Bermuda Athletic Association invited Harvard, Yale and Princeton's rugby teams to come down for a friendly scrum, offering the students a $50 travel stipend, and the spring break tradition of sun and sport (indoor and outdoor) was born.
