Pragada: The Six Nations Championship

We’re nearing the end of the term here at the Bing Overseas Oxford study abroad program, and I’d been feeling let down after the pitiful showing by Britain during the Winter Olympic Games. They finished the ceremonies in PyeongChang with only five medals to their name, a sad showing when compared to the prowess displayed by the United States and their 23 medals. I’ve been in England for seven weeks, I need to be nationalistic about something to truly feel a part of the culture here, and what better way to display country pride than in sports! Then I wandered into a pub this past weekend and saw my new fellow countrymen cheering on an English rugby team.
