I am on the plane, waiting to push off for Atlanta and then on to San Jose. Yet another SSSS designation, yet another minimal packing job for a long international stint. But this isn't why I write to livejournal.

No, I blog to talk about Finals. It was two days this year. We won our first game, which was particularly important -- my co-captain's boyfriend is the other team's captain. Something like 13-4. But we lost in Quarters, to a team that is just no fun to play.

The nice thing about the two days is that we get better resolution about where we stood. The team played another game today. They won (team that beat us last week). Then they won again, for 5th place, against a team that creamed us at the begining of the season (15-2).

We are the 5th place team. Yay. Flight time.

What made them no fun to play?

They have a couple of notably obnoxious players. People who play aggressive and physical games with appreciation for the spirit of the game (the most important part of the sport) in that self-refereeing let's you get away with all kinds of stuff. This kind of play tended to disrupt our otherwise very tranquil and spirited play. Arguments, infighting, grudeholding -- not a great way to end a season of peace and love.
