Okay, so it’s my blog, I get to do a little bragging. Joe did not, alas, “dominate in ping pong” as I might have previously predicted, thanks to Darren from Team Arizona, but his 3-on-3 co-ed basketball team has advanced to the Elite 8 in the tournament for the Gold! I believe this portrait says it all…
Meanwhile, allow me to introduce you to the Games Day Two’s MVPs (Most Valued Parents):
But there are nearly 6,000 other people here besides my own clan, so let’s get to it! First up, some pics from the ping pong extravaganza that took place in Hall B all day today:
But ping pong wasn’t the only event of the day. I hear bone marrow recipient Michael, who lives in Calgary but plays on Team Arizona (nice arrangement that guy has going on!), went 6 for 6 golds in swimming, as did a 17-year-old teammate of his. Jennifer, my brother’s fellow Team Northwest teammate and a coworker of his, scored two golds. One of my hometown ladies from Minnesota brought home the top prize for women’s bowling, and, geez, who knows what else. It’s impossible to be everywhere at once here — so much is going on every day.
On to basketball, in which my bro’s team won two rounds to advance to tomorrow’s semi-semifinals.
