Austrian rugby team loses 48-0, gets naked

aussieruggerblog.jpgOne more reason to love rugby:

The Austrian national rugby team stripped naked in downtown Vilnius after a crushing 48-0 defeat by Lithuania, local media reported Tuesday.

Following the match, the 22 men climbed on top of stairs near a bar on Gediminas prospektas - the main pedestrian street in the Lithuanian capital - started to sing cheers, as the players took off their clothes to the applause of the public.

The players chanted "Shirts off! Pants off!" at one point and started a rendition of "Singing in the Rain."

"Yes, these were the men we played against on Saturday ... I guess the defeat could have prompted them to do that," Lithuanian rugby federation President Aleksandras Makarenka told Reuters.

Gee, Ohio State didn't act that way after being blown out of the last two BCS title games.

The video was taken off YouTube, but longtime Outsports reader Curt J found it on a Lithuanian site. Click here and scroll to the bottom for the video (there is nudity, so not safe for work). I am not sure how long it (the video, I mean) will stay up --Jim Buzinski
