Seedings … Seattle?

Since I’ve been barely blogging, I’ve also been barely perusing all of my usual rugby sites for news and updates. So, I was a tad surprised this morning when I saw this over on K-Train’s blog … the D-1 seedings for 2007:

1 Northeast #1
2 Pacific Coast #1
3 Midwest #1
4 South #1
5 Northeast #2
6 Midwest #2
7 Mid Atlantic #1
8 Northeast #3
9 Mid Atlantic #2
10 Midwest #3
11 Mid Atlantic #3
12 West #1
13 West #2 can be challenged by So Cal #2
14 Pacific Coast #2 can be challenged by So Cal #1
15 West #3 can be challenged by Northeast #4
16 Pacific Coast #3 can be challenged by Midwest #4

My team, the Wisconsin Women, are the Midwest #4 seed and we can challenge, if we choose, the Pacific Coast #3 seed, the Emerald City Mudhens in Seattle, Washington.

And although I knew we would probably get thrown into the challenge mix last fall, I had forgotten about it until this morning. And then I realized that my team might be taking a trip to Seattle this spring.

Needless to say, my mind’s spinning a bit. Seattle isn’t exactly a day trip for us Wisconsin girls. Nor is it a quick weekend jaunt. Thankfully, we have a bit of time to plan and make our decision. And as Goose and I discussed on the phone this morning, we could go climb the Space Needle! 🙂

So … yeah. Seattle, huh? And for my teammates who read this, more information will be forthcoming. Don’t ask me any questions yet … because I don’t know. As soon as I know … you’ll know.

Based on results for Seattle in the fall, especially since they met up with our league buddies in Chicago North Shore, this could be a fairly even-matched games. If we travel well.

So all I keep thinking is that this could be a planning nightmare of sorts, but when a door opens, you walk through it right?

Hmmm … rugby surprises in 2007 to say the least.

    well, as much as i’d like to wish you luck since the mudhens are our rivals, i’m afraid i can’t since a win for you would mean my region (the northwest) would lose one of our spots for nationals next year. enjoy seattle if you come out here though, it’s a great city:) oh and just fyi with regards to teams out here, when we say seattle we’re talking about the seattle rugby club, the mudhens are pretty much just called the mudhens…
