i know i just wrote a post bitching about my basketball team but i thought it would be interesting to tell you that we won the ibaraki basketball tournament.  (i think it was the ibaraki tournament.  whatever, we won a tournament)  our team is usually pretty sucky but we picked up a few guys who were pretty good.

i noticed something at the gym that was pretty funny.  to keep the folding chairs from scraping the floor, each chair leg had a little knitted bootie.

dudes need to cut their nails.  i got shanked on my bulging bicep.

don’t really have much else to say about the tournament except that i had been hoping all along that we lost.  it was a two-weekend tournament and didn’t wanna play on the second sunday for fears of a hangover after yoshi’s wedding party.  (yes, i did have a hangover but i was okay by gametime)

our championship team minus some guys who already went home.  don't know most of their names...

on a different basketball note, i finally found an outdoor basketball hoop in japan.  it was the very first outdoor hoop i’ve seen.  i just have one question.  seriously?
