One of the traditions were have on our team, as well as almost every rugby team, are the team drink ups. A drink up is a get together of all the players that are of legal age to drink to have a few cold ones after the games. Generally we all throw in 5 bucks and were get as much beer as we can with the money we collected. After a few beers, we sing some of the traditional rugby drinking songs like days of the week, Chicago department store, if I were a marrying kind etc. Sometimes if we are friendly with the opposing team we will invite the other team to have a drink up with us. Generally it doesn’t happen but we always throw it out there to the other team. I have to say this is definitely one of my favorite traditions we have because it is always a fun time drinking a few beers with some of your closest buddies.
