Old Gaelic’s Recruitment for 2041 Season Takes Another Step Forward

Congratulations to one Steven “Prime Minister” Rigg for the birth of his son Jackson Gene on October 6, 2021.

This is the newest addition to a strong recruiting class for the Gaelic, as Rigg is the fifth son to be added to the team in the last 20 months, joining teammates Orion Kane, Bodhi Brillhart, Colson Martin, and Finley Kolanda.

They will join a veteran roster led by Sergio Acala II, Liam Kelly… and 53 year-old second row Alexander Diegel.

Jerry Gould and Nick Dettorre were not available for comment on this story.

“Shut the Hell up Before I Kiss You on the Mouth…” All of Martin’s Personalities on Display in Wins Versus MoCo Bucks, South Jersey


Old Gaelic outside center Jase Martin had a dominant day to kick off Old Gaelic’s regular season against the Montgomery Bucks. He juked jived, and otherwise gangled his way to a Man of the Match performance. However, the day was also highlighted by some outbursts of a different kind…

“I didn’t know if he wanted to hug us all or or kill someone,” said the bewildered young wing Alex Schaefer.

“Probably both,” replied veteran fullback Matt Leggett. “Just do what we do and ignore him. It eventually all balances out.”

“He kept yelling at me that it was my fault after he scored,” said the MoCo forward simply known as Beardy. “You know that scene from Chappelle’s Show? Where they stab that guy’s dad in The Mad Real World episode? And he slumps on the ground saying ‘but I don’t know what I did?’ That was me. That was how I felt right there in that situation.”

“If he plays like that, I’m fine with it,” said forward Anthony “Birds” DeFreitas. “As long as he doesn’t try to kiss me. There are limits, man.”

While Martin’s rage led to broken tackles and bruised egos on this Saturday, the following match was a full display of the duality of man. His love for the homies came through with six assists amidst the thrashing against South Jersey.

Love. Hate. Rage. Homies. Brugby. The Jase Martin Story.

Old Gaelic Turns Page to October, Looks to Continue Undefeated Fall


Following an undefeated September, Old Gaelic continues its season October 16th in a pivotal home clash against Philly Whitemarsh.

Gaelic has sits on top of the division, a perfect 3-0 with wins against the Montgomery County Bucks and the South Jersey Devils. The home team accepted an unfortunate forfeit from Doylestown, and has a perfect 15 league points and +153 point differential.

Led by a steady pack and explosive backline, a full team effort has been the key to the run so far with a full panel of 30 players working hard at trainings and getting A side time. A B match was even squeezed in this past Saturday against Lancaster, also won by the Gaelic, with some supplemental players provided by the Roses and Doylestown.

Philly Whitemarsh presents a different challenge — also undefeated but with just two matches played so far, the winner of this game will be in excellent position to secure the division’s #1 seed before Spring playoffs. A full home crowd will be needed to spur on the Black and Gold Saturday!

“Pussy Ass Bitch…” “Bitchass Hoe…” Acala Meets His Match Versus Potomac


Old Gaelic hooker Sergio Acala played well versus his opposite number, Old Glory DC/Potomac Exiles’ front row Dante Lopresti. However, a curious development happened early in the match.

“When I heard the familiar words of ‘Soft ass little boy’ coming out of a ruck, I only had one thought — there goes Sergio,” said Gaelic veteran forward Alex Diegel. “I was shocked when I realized it was Potomac’s hooker talking to Sergio.” The whisperings of sweet nothings didn’t end there.

“When I heard them boys talkin’ in the next scrum I thought I was in one of them rap videos I’ve heard about before,” said prop Ronald “RJ” “Daryl” Fisher. I just thought ‘gully I’m just out here trying to give this other fella across from me the ol’ bullyneck can’t we just play some rugby?'”

“How old are you, like 40?” Sergio continued to ask the grizzled-looking number 2.

“I’m 24 nice try.”

A shocked-looking Acala responded. “I’m 23!”

We can only assume this is the start of a beautiful and long-standing friendship.


“Your Prophet is Dead.” — Young Believes Matrix Resurrections to Pick Up Where Obscure Video Game Left Off

Amidst a spirited debate during practice the day that the trailer for the fourth installment of the Matrix series — The Matrix Resurrections — was released, forward David YoSon Young came up with the hottest of takes.

“Your Prophet is dead. They killed him in the Matrix Online. That’s not him in the trailer.”

Hmm thought veteran lock/flanker Alex Diegel. Something about that statement smells foul. And it’s not Dave’s deoderant.

“So you’re telling me. The guy in the trailer. That looks just like a young Laurence Fishburne, is wearing Morpheus’ iconic no-stem sunglasses and offering Neo a pill, presumably to his enlightenment, is not going to be playing a young Morpheus.

“Nope,” Young replied, undeterred by the points made in this argument. “He’s dead. They killed him in the video game.”

“And the fact that the movie is called RESURRECTIONS. And that characters that died at the end of the original trilogy are back in it. That doesn’t do anything for you?”

“Naw, fuck that… Also Trinity’s gonna fuck a machine.”

And so it was. The truth shall be revealed on December 22nd.

Old Gaelic Wins Fall Opener; League Matches to Follow

Old Gaelic stepped up to the challenge of taking on D1 Playoff team the Potomac Exiles and responded in a huge way. The home team got out on the front foot immediately after Potomac failed to execute its opening kickoff and didn’t look back.

OG’s aggressive, physical tone opened up opportunities for Brady Reisman, Sergio Acala, Alex Schaefer (2) and Jase Martin to score tries as they built a 29-12 lead in the first three A-Side periods of this Inter Division friendly.

As Old Gaelic’s youth movement continued, flanker Micah Wagner and center Jayden Demmy impressed on their debuts; both were all over the field on defense, making breaks and setting up teammates on offense. Acala also represented well against Potomac’s Old Glory DC front rower en route to a Viking Hard Hat Award. Demmy took home Man of the Match, as squared up against an Old Glory’s most recent draft pick for most of the day.

OG starts its league schedule next Saturday at Montgomery Bucks before returning to Double D Ranch on September 25 for a huge match against Doylestown.

Join the 2021 Old Gaelic Float Saturday

Gather your rafts, air mattresses, sex dolls and other flotation devices for The Annual Old Gaelic Float. The crew will put in at the intersection of Creek Rd. and Rt. 74 at 11 a.m.. The route goes past Cold Springs Brewery, a convenient stop for a drink and bite to eat.

The pull out is set for the rt. 14 underpass off of Gettysburg Pike. Big Bottom Brewery is close by and another stop there after the float is an option for those interested.

BYOB for float drinks.

“They Took Our Jobs” — Domestic Props Threatened by Migrant Front Rows

It’s an epidemic seen countrywide. Now it’s coming to a rugby pitch near you: Younger, fitter, more athletic props are threatening the very existence of older, slower, more stubborn props nationwide. 

“They took our jobs!” exclaimed veteran Old Gaelic tighthead prop Frank Weaver. When asked to explain his point of view in more detail, Weaver paused, gathered his thoughts, then stated with increased vigor, “THEYTOOKOURJERBS!”

“I don’t see the problem with it,” said John Kane. “You know, they do all the hard work for 60 minutes, then I come in for the last 20 and finish the job.” Kane must have thought his comments were off the record, as strangely, when approached by his fellow veteran front rowers, he shifted course.

“I mean… DEYTOOKERJERBS!!!” he shouted, nearly inaudibly.

This is a developing story…

Fall Season Cleared for Takeoff

After eighteen months of uncertainty and nearly two years since a league match, the fall season is ready to to go on in the format we’re used to. The season kicks off with a home friendly against the Potomac Exiles on Saturday, September 11th before our first league match at Montgomery-Bucks (formerly North Penn).

Optional practices/prep for our Atlantic Cup players being next Thursday, August 12th and continues the 19th. Our first “official” fall 15s practice will begin on August 26th. We will resume on a Tuesday-Thursday basis after that, giving us 5 practices before our first friendly and seven before our first league match.

With a healthy mix of young and veteran talent, things are shaping up for another great fall season for Old Gaelic!
