HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2022 - Los Angeles - Day #3

Up early, I ran 2.5 miles on the treadmill in 36 minutes. Getting cleaned up and packing up the room, I headed to the Model 6. From there, Tomasin, Snipes and I walked to Norm's for breakfast.

Scooping up Mikey after breakfast, the four of us headed to Dignity Health Sports Park for a second day of rugby sevens. USA played Fiji in a cup quarter final game. I am always amazed at how many Fiji fans there are. USA lost the game by the score of 28 to 12.

USA played Kenya in the fifth place semi final game. They lost by the score of 21 to 14.

In the afternoon, we caught up with Stephen in a suite hosted by the sponsors of the USA rugby team. As I have said before, Stephen's participation in rugby is really a legacy of his life.

We ended up rolling to the airport before the last two games. New Zealand beat Fiji by the score of 28 to 21 to win the touranment. Australia beat Somoa by the score of 21 to 7 to win in third.

Getting to the airport early, Snipes and I had dinner and explored the meaning of life. Boarding a 9 am Southwest flight back to Sacramento with A43, I was able to get an exit row aisle on a 737-Max.

I was home in Carmichael just after 11 pm. I was a great weekend. I always enjoy Snipes and Tomasin's company!
