August 27th, 2013 Rugby Football

It is said that on August 24th, 1823, a boy in England playing in a football game got so excited that he held the ball and started to run toward the goal.

From then on the sport "Rugby", in which players can hold the ball and run toward the goal, was born. The name was given after Rugby public school the boy went to.

An good example of an innovation driven by a rule-breaker, isn't it?
