While I was in Leicester, England back on Tuesday October 6th, I wound up going to see a Rugby World Cup match between Canada & Romania (Pool D) at Leicester City Stadium aka King Power Stadium, home of the Leicester City FC of the English Premier League.

As for the match we saw, Sean was disappointed as his country Canada blew a 15-0 lead they had at halftime. In the second half, Romania came alive. They scored 17 unanswered points as they went on to defeat Canada, 17-15 overcoming the largest deficit to ever win a Rugby World Cup match. As a result, we all saw history. We also got to see some scrums, tries, conversions & penalty kicks. It was fun watching people from both countries root on their teams.

Once we got outside, Rob & I met up with Sean. We proceeded to walk back to Rob's car together. We all went to have dinner. We wound up eating at Turtle Bay which was a Caribbean restaurant within walking distance of the train station. I wound up having some ribs that came with cole slaw & fries. I also had a local craft beer. While we ate, we all got to share our different travel experiences along with our passion for watching live sporting events. We all had a great time spending precious time together. While Rob showed me around the City & the suburbs before the rugby match, Sean told us he went to visit King Richard III's dynasty death & discovery. It was a learning experience for all of us.
