50 Years of Bermuda Rugby Time Travel

I got a warm welcome on my March 16, 2017 arrival in Bermuda and a question, "is this your first time in Bermuda?" "No," I said, " I come here every 50 years."

I brought Penn Rugby here 50 years ago as team captain and coach. I returned this time with my wife Rosemarie this time as a Penn supporter. (Oliver kept himself busy running touch when ever they'd let him all weekend.)

Nostalgic about my trip 50 years ago.
