My Salvation: Rugby

There aren’t many safeguards in rugby, especially when there is a game between two ruthless teams. This is always clear when the workers from the sanitation department play the workers from the runway crew. No one in their sane mind would join this game, but each team loved to rumble and they always rustled up enough players to keep the excitement in the game from sagging.

I had been in a rut in my life recently and was looking for something different. So when the runway crew chief met me in a saloon, told me about the game and invited me to play I quickly returned home, took off my sandals and rummaged around until I had found more appropriate shoes.

Arriving at the field to play I was told the rules of the sacred game. After each team saluted the other we began. I have never played such a rough game before: the rustle of men running across the field, the sound of them digging a rut with their shoes to hold their ground, the ruptured muscles that reminded me I was out of shape. Everything felt like I had found my salvation from the boring life I was leading.

After salvaging our pride from losing because of one play where a clever player sabotaged us, I walked with both team to the edge of the field. Beautiful women who looked like they were fresh from the beauty salon greeted us with plates full of freshly cooked salmon and beer. The rut I was in was definitely over.

【译文】
我的解救措施:橄榄球

在橄榄球比赛当中没有太多的预防措施,尤其是在比赛双方都不讲情面的时候。卫生部门的人和管理机场跑道的工作人员比赛时这一点总是很清楚。一个神志正常的人是不会参加这种比赛的,但是每个队都喜欢吵吵嚷嚷并且他们还经常能凑齐一批队员使比赛激动人心的感觉有增无减。

我最近生活中有点一成不变,我正想寻找一些不同的东西,因此当跑道队的队长在一家沙龙遇到我、跟我谈起比赛并邀请我加入的时候,我很快回到家里、脱掉凉鞋、四处翻找,直到我找到更加合适的鞋。

来到比赛场地,他们给我说了这场神圣的比赛的规则。双方互相敬礼之后比赛开始了。我以前从来没有打过这么艰难的比赛:队员跑过赛场时的沙沙声、为了站稳脚步鞋子在地上留下凹痕的声音、提醒我我已经受伤的裂开的肌肉,每件事都让我觉得我已经找到办法把自己从枯燥的生活中解救出来。

由于一名聪明的队员在比赛中暗中捣乱,我们因此获救而没有失去自尊,之后我和双方队员一起来到场边。看上去就像刚从美容店出来的漂亮女人朝我们走来,她们手里举着装满了新做的大麻哈鱼和啤酒的盘子。我过去那种墨守成规的生活彻底地结束了。
