In Addition to the Last Post...

Looks as though one of our events was never reported, and since we love reporting, this just can't be. On February 23, we had the experience to go the Pan Pacific Championship between LA Galaxy and Sydney. It was pretty sweet! You see, back when they weren't too good for their poor, childless, rural-dwelling, college-student friends, Jason and Heather Tang hooked us up with free tickets, as Jason is a sportscaster for a local new station here. The cool thing was that we got to go sit, not in, but next to the press conference box, so we had a great view of the whole field, and nobody sitting around us! Since we all know he bends it, it was cool to get to see David Beckham play in person. Because the Galaxy won (2,0), Beckham took off his shirt and handed it off to some chick in the crowd. Overall, a fun experience, and our first sports event in Hawaii! (Oh, the first picture below is a corner shot by the old bender himself...you can see the ball blurring through the air.)

    Back when our poor, childless, rural-dwelling, college-student friends weren't too busy with homework and travelling to maui! We really do need to play again soon, especially since you are leaving us for "real" life...

    Actually we were just trying to make your leaving less hard on us by cutting you off early...

    Yes, yes...suppose a retraction is in order! We are so glad that the early cut-off was only a comical jest, and after sharing an experience like fire knife dancing there's no way we can only be "former" friends...
