Bad Start to Six Nations for Scotland-But Scots Rocking Out here In SoCal Anyway….

Rocking out the Scottish Metal and Bagpipes aboard the Queen Mary.

It has been a rough start to the Six Nations for Scotland. Destroyed in Dublin and Impotent at Murrayfield in their second loss against England, getting shut out 20-0. So what does a Scotland fan in Southern California do? You find a place with a whole lot of other people in Kilts, find Alcohol, Highland Games, and people with Scottish Accents. In my case, that meant going to Long Beach California with my wife and going to the Long Beach Scottish Festival and Highland games. On an off weekend for the Six Nations, it was a good way for an American with Some Scots-Irish background to forget about Scotland's problems on the pitch. At this point, this 2014 vintage for Scotland looks like it will be battling Italy for the Wooden Spoon at the Six Nations.

This Scottish dude would be a welcome addition to Scotland's second row on Line Outs. 
Well, if Scottish Rugby is having troubles, there is always the Highland Games in Long Beach.
Scotland Fans will be needing a lot of Scotch to get through this 6 Nations, I'm afraid.
A Scot does not live on Haggis and Scotch alone….
