It Is Final. We Are Playing Sunday

I had my first and last practise with the team the other day. It left me aching all over. We are scheduled to have the opening ceremonies for the tournament on Sunday. I still don't know at what time our first game will be; but it is definitely on Sunday, too. I don't know whether I'd be able to... Sign in to see full entry.
