All day softball tournament in Richmond, England.

A fantastic day. We played for 5 full hours and won the entire tournament!
In the last inning, I swear that I could hear Chariots of Fire.
Kev ended up chipping a load of teeth after an unfortunate knee to the chin incident during a heroic (and successful) stealing of second base (and is now looking for a dentist.)
We were tied up and had gone into an extra inning. I rounded third base and Isaac sent me home where the catcher was waiting for me ball-in-glove. It rolled out of her glove just as she tagged me and everyone was screaming at me,. so, confused- I tapped on home base with my toe and soon was tackled by my whole team as I had made the winning score. Truly a valiant effort by all.
Afterwards, we went to a nearby pub to celebrate where I modified a few team shirts. Kev's friends Matt and Casey did a great job playing with us on their last day in London.
