China Cup JV Baseball Tournament

Well, I've been busy coaching. That's my excuse for not blogging. Can't keep blaming the firewall (though it IS still a hassle). Anyway, here I sit in the coaches' lounge during a beautiful sunny DAY 2 of the big tourney. Our opponent last night was defeated by swine flu, and didn't even make the trip from Beijing. But after that 1-0 start, we hit a rocky patch this morning, losing a close game, 25-0. In our defense, the sun was in our eyes. Also, the opponent, from SAS' other campus across the river, has no varsity team, so we were basically playing their varsity guys. The umpire was a crack whore. And did I mention the sun was in our eyes?

ANyway, game 2 is soon. Let's hope we score. Pray for us now, will ya?
