The time is long here, this month I organized a softball tournament with several companies, each company had to form a team and we confront each other.
I was the coach and pitcher of my team, we are fortunate to have with us a lieutenant who played the position of drummer in college, he is not bad at all!
We arrived in final (it was yesterday) and we won the cup! (One of the guys had made a sort of papier-mâché statue!). The whole team was in top form, we made 3 home run include one thank to me! My father would be proud of me!
