Well, the tournament has come to a close. Yesterday we beat Chinese Taipei in 3. This team upset quite a few top teams and played five gamers with others. Today we beat Turkey in four. We finished strong although we only placed 9th. That was a lot lower than our expectations but we at least were able to pull together and finish the best position given the circumstances. Wow, this is my last World Championships as a player! Kind of sad…but I am looking forward to next years competitions including the qualifier for the Olympics World Cup. But we have quite a few other important tournaments before we get there.
Tomorrow 2006 USA National team will part ways… Some of us will travel back to Colorado Springs before driving or catching a flight to our hometown. Others of us will catch a flight from San Fran. From there I will travel back to Baton Rouge to see my family for a quick visit before prepare to go to play my next season in Brazil. I’ve got lots to do with only a short time to do it. I’d better start making my list. I will update my schedule as soon as the federation post it.
