Not sure if this is off-topic or not. To the extent that it involves Duke and sport, I'm hoping you can give it a pass. Also, it is known that Naismith was a rugger, and it is rumored that he originally conceived of basketball as a form of "indoor rugby." So there that.

Anyway, 2013 is the 50th anniversary of the Duke University Rugby Football Club. We are working on a number of ways to commemorate the event, all of which are being coordinated on our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/groups/dukerugbyalumni/). There's also a impressive and growing collection of old photographs and artifacts collected over the years by former players.

If you are a Duke Rugby alum, know a rugby alum, or just sort of have a strange fascination with men in short shorts, please go directly to the facebook page and request to join.

Thanks for your time. We promise not to get naked at your next party. Not entirely naked, anyway.

Sent it to my old rugby playing roommate. Thanks for the heads up.

Kind Sir,

I am interested in your offer, VERY interested.

However, due to a combination of extreme misanthropy, the fact that bad people on the internets might steal my identity and a wrenching fear that the whole world might find out about my, . . . um, . . . unusual hobby, I do not have a “Face Book” account.

Is there another source of information, such as website or mailing list that I can get on, that will keep me abreast of these events?
