Last year this same tournament was at the end of April. I'd been here four months and I was working in an EF (English First school) surrounded on ninety-nine of one hundred sides by Brits. By happenstance I found out Friday night that there was a men's slow pitch softball tournament that had started that very day and ran through Sunday. I was ecstatic. I don't think I even asked anyone else. Saturday, after teaching from 9:00-14:00, I raced home, grabbed a bag, changed clothes and headed to the fields where I spent the better part of the next thirty-six hours.

A last surprise is that one of my bosses plays on a team that was in the tournament last year and this year, though he didn't play. He said that I should play. I didn't see any women playing in the tourney, but I'd love to practice with them if nothing else. They are on summer hiatus right now but he said to think about it and he'd let me know when practices restart in September. SQUEEEEEAAALLLL!!
