    Women’s teams have prom dress games as fun team only games or games against alumni. It adds a fun element to the normal game. You should lighten up. And considering I have seen guys play in rediculous outfits too, I would guess there is a tuxedo game out there somewhere. I know I have seen leisure suits.

    And next time you leave a comment, don’t be such a coward. Sign your name. Own your words!

    As someone who plays women’s rugby, I think prom dress games are stupid too. It’s a waste of things that could be donated to girls who can’t afford prom dresses. The thought of wearing a dress for ANY reason is very uncomfortable for a lot of women’s rugby players. I have only ever seen 2 prom dress games. The first was at Point when I played on college and I thought it looked really dumb. Our team headed for the social to sing and socialize.
