Not that I tweet, but #WINNING!!!!/div>
The next weekend we took kickball to the next level and my team competed in the Circuit DC tournament, otherwise known as DCK365. Yes, you read that right, I competed in a kickball tournament. BabySpice came up to join the fun cause she is a megastar athlete and I thought our girls could use the boost. It was awesome having here there because it just makes everything I do more fun.
OH heeeeeeeeelllzzzz to the yeeeeeeeessss!
Okay, you got me, I didn't say we won, we got 2nd but WE MADE IT THERE! That is huge huge huge for my team!!
Wanna know how we got there? Oh I'll tell you lucky lucky girls.
So we did really well in pool play 3-1, but drew a tough seed for the first round of elims. This was a new team from PG county that had some very fast dudes and some very....umm TOUGH individuals. We managed to knock them off to make it to the next round. OMG the next game took FOREVER!!!!! We were losing 5-1 then I helped lead the charge to make it 5-3 (pat on the back thank you very much) then some of our boys worked their tail off and we were in a 5-5 tie when the game time ran out. However, since it was an elimination game we went to overtime which in kickball is a mess. 1 less guy on the field which means girls are moved everywhere and formations change after every play. Poor little BabySpice was put in the outfield, 1st base, SS and then catcher. She did really well though and I couldn't have been more proud of her performance. Long story short we won and made it to the semifinals against the best team in the Circuit.
We played them really tight and we were winning for the whole game which made me nervous. I hadn't made a PLAY the ENTIRE tournament, except for kicking and I just had a feeling the ball was gonna come to me for a big play. So it's the bottom of the last inning, we are winning by 1 run, the other team is kicking with 2 outs and I KNEW I was either going to make a big play or botch a big play.
Guy kicks the ball....it comes to me right by second base, but I'm not fast enough to run to 2nd base to make the force out. Time slows down as I try and figure out what to do and how to do it. So, ya'll I just threw the ball at him to try and tag him out and....
I immediately looked to C to make sure I did the right thing and all I saw was him running at me grinning and everyone else running towards me screaming. They lifted me up and everyone was cheering at ME?!?! It was one of the most incredible feelings in the world. I've been parts of different teams and helped win games, but I've never been THAT PERSON that wins it. It was incredible something I will never ever forget.
We played really well in the Finals but lost 1-0. I am so proud of my team and couldn't ask for a better group of teammates.
After the Finals.
There is always a party after the tournament and even though we were exhausted we made it out. It was alot of fun but I was SUPER TIRED and my feet hurt sooo much. I usually am the girl making the rounds and C is just hanging out, but we swapped roles this time. I just hung out with the Sissys and my teamies!
