Picks: USA Sevens Rugby

[SPORTS] FEB. 7-10

While most of you will still be suffering from Super Bowl fatigue, we’ll be preparing for the big rugby sevens (that’s seven people on a team, rather than 15) tournament. And frankly, you can have your futbol Americano. We’ll gladly take the shorter halves. The brisker pace. The more impressive display of athleticism. And the less-restrictive, padding-free uniforms that have been known to facilitate genuine wardrobe malfunctions during tackles — and with men’s and women’s teams, that means equal-opportunity on-field nudity! Sam Boyd Stadium, 7000 E. Russell Road, www.USAsevens.com and www.unlvtickets.com, $10-$510.
