Guess what? I am actually in the general vicinity of most of you!! I am here for the weekend and staying Monday and Tuesday to go to Spring Training!!! It's my first time at spring training, if you can believe it, and let me tell you, there were way too many Giants fans on my flight down here.
So, a bunch of us SnakePitters have lawn seats for Monday's game "at" the Rockies. Anybody else is welcome to join us. I don't know where or when we'll meet up, I guess we should figure that out at some point. ;) I want to go early and do the autograph thing so if anybody has any tips, please share!
The main reason I'm here, though, is for a power soccer tournament. Most of you have never heard of power soccer, and when you find out what it is and that I play it, you'll probably be in for a bit of a surprise. ;) (Don't read too much into it - I'm still me!) There are 9 teams at this tournament, and it's being held at the new Virginia G. Piper fitness center that officially opened last weekend. My team has one game today, two tomorrow and two Sunday. The scheule's not online despite me asking them to put it up, but it's essentially from 9-3 Saturday and Sunday (and 1-5 today). See the gym address and tournament flier at www.spofit.org. :)
UPDATE: If the bees will let us sit in the LF bleachers,I say we go for it. Meet at the top of the LF lawn area around noon. If for sun or space we need to move, we will. Find us on twitter. Or I'll be the one in the dbscks jersey! (Hey, where I'm from, that works well as a descriptor.)
P.S. We took third in the tournament. The semifinal was pretty close, we never led though, and lost 3-2. We won our final 2-0.
