Read the board often and have decided to share two stories that I have from this tourny. First let me begin by saying that I thought it was tremendously ran and a first class event. The first event occurred after our last game on saturday against a team from so cal called Dessert Dawgs. Following the conclusion of our game with them, we met at the pitchers mound for a prayer that was led by their shortstop. Without going into detail, it was a prayer that bascically said how lucky we are to be able to have been there and to be able to particapate in a game we love. It was a very special momment for me. Oh, by the way, he may be the best player I have had the opportunity to have played against so far. Second story occurred at the skills challange. Had the honor and priviledge to be in line with one of the players from the team of wounded warriors. He seemed so young, yet so mature. He had lost both his legs. While in line, we crossed paths with a senior player, maybe 55 to 60 years of age, gray long beard and a cut off shirt with arms covered in some tattoos. My wounded warrior friend looks right at him and says SEMPER FI. The senior looks at him and returns a simple return of SEMPER FI. Not another word was spoken. Made the hair on my arms stand up. Not having served in the military, can only imagine the special bond there is amongst those who have. Well thanks for reading. AL FALESKI PHOENIX TUBE#11

Was wondering if anyone knows what rules they will be playing by in the TOC, 2012 or 2013? Not sure because we qualified in 2012, but are playing in 2013. Does not matter to me either way, just wondering. Thanks in advance to anyone who responds.

I have been reading this board for a few years now looking forward to hearing what the veterans of this game have to say and have enjoyed immensly. Got to say though that gary, you are getting very old on here. Ever hear of positive comments or staying on tract. Thought that the einstien guy was strange and combative but I am starting to think maybe it was you. Your comments are getting old. Honestly, you put a sour taste to this board. We play this game because we are competitors, friendships and memorys made. Just wanted to let you know how I feel about the dung u spew. Good luck all. Will keep reading and looking forward to the interesting and not so interesting comments. AL #11 Phoenix Tube Over 40. Not a big fan of no name posts.
