Support Your Local Hooker! 

Where are you guaranteed to find a hooker right in the middle of a scrum? Hint: It's the same place you go to see wingers and flankers. Still not sure? Come on! Where else do you think of when you imagine burly men held aloft by their shorts? The Maryland Heights Sportport complex, of course (12525 Sportport Road, Maryland Heights). But today, the game isn't soccer, that "gentleman's game played by hooligans," but the "hooligan's game played by gentlemen" — yes, rugby. And so at noon, the St. Louis Bombers (www.stlouisbombers.com) take on Chicago's South Side Irish in a preseason game — and at just $3, this is by far the most action (and maybe the most blood) you can get for your money. Oh, and yes, a hooker is a rugby position.
