Spain Wins...

Ok I know that the readership of this blog is somewhat small, but before I begin a new post I always look see if I get any reaction from those who do read this so if it is large or small you are always welcome to put down any comments you may have, but just please keep them acceptable... Joey that means you... as well as anyone else... Anyways I think the highlight of my night was Spain winning Euro08... That was after the 15-3 match we had today in baseball... I pitched 4 innings and walked one guy in the fifth before being taken out. I lost my second game today, but really had decent stuff, and threw 72 percent strikes which is actually to many strikes... I had some hits that came 0-2 and should not happen... After the game we played some ping pong in our Canteen and had some beers but then went home showered up and went to the Canteen that is really close to our house. It is a short walk and we spent most of the night watching the soccer match of the final Euro 08 cup. We talked to the locals around there and came home... Baseball on our end of the line has not been so good, but my roommate and I are traveling with some others to Rotterdam Holland to watch the Dutch National Team take on the Cuban National Team on Wednesday... It will be my first time in Holland and it is awesome since I get to see some World baseball while I am there... it is a short hour and a half at most to get to Rotterdam and the tickets were cheap... I will give more info later
Peace again from across the Pond...

Mike, Ok no more hits on 0-2 counts. Third time must be the charm so I am sure you will win your next start. Good luck getting used to the food variety, and have fun on your travels on Wednesday. Good blog by the way, although it is the first blog I have ever read.

Mike - Who cares how baseball is going, what is your record at ping pong?

Mitch I agree, but they have some ping pong ballers around here. I played the so called champ first and lost 17-21 and 18-21, so I have to work at that as well!
