Tennis Tournament

Brian joined up with a group of guys and they play tennis about twice a week.  A couple weekends ago there was a tournament.  It was long and the kids and I had fun for the first 4 hours, and then after that…. well, I cracked!  That’s a whole other story!  Brian did great and even won!  He took home a $25 dollar gift certificate to the pro shop.  It burned a hole in his pocket and he promptly spent it on a new hat and some wrist bands!  Brian’s hoping that Santa thinks he’s been a very good boy this year and brings him a couple of new tennis racquets. We found an awesome sports shop off base, and he was able to “test drive” some racquets.  I love the Japanese people.  They are such hard workers.  When you walk in a store, they literally run all over to serve you and get you what you need.  A+ on customer service.  Brian was teamed up with a guy named Edgar.  Edgar is here without his family, so he has devoted his free time to tennis.  They made an excellent team!

    Way to go Bri! Hmm now you have peaked my curiosity as to why you “Cracked” Nat! You obviously needed your Mother there to keep you company! 🙂

    Congrats, Bri!! The FIRST four hours?! How many more were after?! :/

    I’m go glad Brian has had a chance to relieve some stress with his favorite sport. I have great memories of days watching the kids play tennis. I can just feel the warm sun. We could use that now! I didn’t have little kids to chase at the same time, however. Tennis tournaments can be LONG events. Brian your serving motion looks powerful! Hope we can come when you are playing.

    Sounds like Brian still has it in him! Congratulations! I like tennis, too, but 4 hours is a long time to sit and watch so hats to you, Nat, for sticking it out that long!
