As Ferris and Sloane kiss in front of a stained-glass window, Cameron concentrates on George Seurat’s painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte”. Explaining the pointillist style — and moviemanking, teenage angst and adult insecurity — Hughes says, “I always thought this painting was sort of like making a movie, the pointillist style,” he says. “You don’t have any idea what you’ve made until you step back from it. … The closer he looks at the child, the less he sees. But the more he looks at, there’s nothing there. I think he fears that the more you look at him the less you see. There isn’t anything there. That’s him”. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) dir. John Hughes
Rugby is not just another sport. It is a way of life. People and other athletes might not realize how much passion and dedication is put into Rugby. Rugby is a lifestyle. The hard practices, the sprints, the lifting, the feeling of wanting to give up but you know you can’t. You can’t because you owe it to yourself, and your team. Your team is your family, your sisters, your brothers, never let them down. Play not only for yourself but play for your team. Rugby is not for the faint of heart, it takes time and love. The feeling of the pitch, the rush of the scrum, the rucks, the plays. The feeling of scoring a try. The feeling of winning. In the end, all of that hard work, sweat and dedication is worth it. The best part is, you are never alone. Your teammates are there for you and you are there for them. The feeling of knowing someones got your back, the feeling that you get when you know if youre going down someone will be there to ruk over you. The feeling of true friendship and the feeling of being able to trust a group of people with your life. Yeah. Thats Rugby. When i’m done playing, if I ever am, I want to be able to say I left my Blood, Sweat and Tears on the Pitch. Rugby is life. It takes dedication, passion and love. Yeah, its tough but I would not want to ever play another sport in the place of Rugby.
