On June 4th we had a team outing to play WhirlyBall. I've got to admit, I was thinking "I'm too busy, I don't want to go do this dumb thing" but it was OUTSTANDING!!! We had so much fun, and it was incredibly exhausting! Both Christi and I have huge bruises all over from smashing into each other and into our seatbelts and the sides of our cars when you get bumped into.

Here's a quick video I put together from some clips I got of the last two matches. It's about 17mb so you might want to right click and save it to your desktop before you run it.
