The World’s Toughest Town

The Curmudgeon does some stretching and light exercise before work each day with the television playing to save him from eternal boredom, and somewhere between push-up number sixteen and push-up number twenty the other day he saw/heard a commercial for “The world’s toughest sport coming to the world’s toughest town.”

The Eagles at the Linc?  Nope.

MMA at the arena in south Philadelphia?  Uh uh.

Rugby – collegiate rugby, to be precise.

But not in Philadelphia.  At PPL Park, where the soccer team called the Union plays.

In Chester.

They’re right:  Chester is one very tough town.
