A loyal reader from London, Will, passed along this piece from the BBC about the noted rugby team London Irish potentially playing a game at Fenway Park.

In the rugby world, this would be a very big deal.

"It would be massive news over there and a great coup for the club to be involved in," London Irish chief executive Andy Martin told BBC Radio Berkshire.

"You can imagine the scene. Fenway Park in Boston full of Irish people, hopefully with some of the fans from here going across to watch us playing an Italian side in the Heineken Cup."

Fenway has hosted hockey games and a soccer match in recent years, so why not rugby? Sounds like a good time.
