end of June

Nice quiet day today. Getting some stuff done. I had a lot of catching up to do considering I haven't been home the last 4 weekends in a row.

T's at the pool w/ friends, KJ is supposed to be cleaning her room. She's been invited to several friend's houses but will not be going anywhere unless that room of her's meets inspection.

Tuesday is T-bone's big day. she likes when we serve her breakfast in bed (princess). KJ doesn't really ever get breakfast in bed because her b-day is usually on a school day in October. Poor KJ. She really does miss out on the cool stuff.
Cool Quote for tomorrow's b-day girl by Roy Disney: "It's not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are."

Cooked in Charlotte

Home from Charlotte. Had a good time but boy was it hot. The boys didn't play so great on Saturday but they kicked it up a notch on Sunday winning both games. Unfortunately it was a touch too little, too late. Saturday's 2 losses / 1 win hurt their chances at medal contention but at least Chris was pleasant during the long drive home.

Had fun seeing Joe & Laurie and Paige. T & Paige hadn't seen each other since Lou & Mel's wedding in Philly (can't remember what year that was but KJ had to have been 3 or 4 because she was in playschool, pre-k, when Lisa & George got married a year later). The girls had fun on the paddle boats at the hotel. What a nice hotel in Charlotte -- behind the hotel was a really nice "boardwalk" area w/ shops & restaurants. Friday night we ate at a Mexican place w/ some of the boys from the team and Saturday we had Italian w/ Joe & Laurie (and ice cream, too!).
So T's getting really excited about her 14th b-day on Tuesday. She wants to go to dinner w/ the family and the boyfriend and then we'll plan a small (emphasis on SMALL) b-day party. You may recall T has a tendancy to plan large, extravagant birthday blow-outs. I swear, she thinks she Paris Hilton and we should rent out a club in Vegas to celebrate her "special" day w/ all her celebrity friends.

Another long lax weekend -- when does it EVER end?

Might stay at the hotel tomorrow w/ the girls and hang out at the pool while the big boys play. We're at a really nice Hilton w/ a boardwalk area -- restaurants, shopping, and a nice playground area, etc. Sunday we'll check out of the hotel early and go directly to the fields for the 2 games. Maybe Joe & Laurie will come up for some games Saturday and we can do dinner or something.

Met a couple of the All-star team and had dinner at a Mexican restaurant. Sat outside and finished our meal before the storm came. Chris has taken the girls to the pool but now they've decided to get some ice cream.

The drive was a little longer than I had anticipated. I guess I just wasn't in a travelling mood today.


Went to dinner and a movie w/ friends last night. Am I the only woman on the planet who didn't like Sex & the City (the movie)?? Loved the series when it was HBO, hated the movie. I thought it was way too long and really boring. There were some funny moments but overall I was very disappointed. I have no idea why they introduced Jennifer Hudson as Carrie Bradshaw's assistant. Her character added absolutely nothing to the story line and I thought she was corny.

I had a dream

...that Buddy came home last night. In my dream it was raining really hard and we were all sitting around the kitchen table. My ears perked up and I said, "did anybody else hear that???" I got up, opened the front door and he was sitting there drenched. He walked in, shook off, hopped on the couch and laid down in his usual spot. Very weird, very vivid/real. Very wishful thinking.

Do you remember when I had that middle-of-the-night emergency room visit prior to KJ's communion? Well, the bills are starting to roll in. Grand total for a couple of hours in the ER, an ambulance ride, some blood work and a CT scan (drumroll please!): $14,000.

Spoke to my brother-who-shall-not-be-named for a long time last night. They're getting ready to go camping for 4th of July weekend. They're definitely getting good use of the pop-up camper they bought. Mr. B's been riding his bike alot, too and the brother-who-shall-not-be-named bought a bike rack so they can all take their bikes camping. I think Little Bit will be spending time w/ both sets of grandparents rather than camping. My brother-who-shall-not-be-named sent me an e-mail earlier in the week regarding the dates of the 2010 and 2011 Penn State vs. Alabama games. I guess these two teams have not met in quite a long, long time. The 2010 game will be in Tuscaloosa, 2011 will be in Happy Valley. BWSNBN (brother-who-shall-not-be-named) said he will be here September 2010 come hell or high water. Chris told him that's an awfully long way to drive to get an ass-whooping but hey! We'd love to see him and Swizzle Stick. Swizzle Stick aka Mr. B and I have this "thing." he yells "We Are" and I'm supposed to respond w/ "Penn State." Now I'll have to teach him "Roll Tide Roll.". T-bone said she'd like to use the 2011 game in Happy Valley as one of her college visits. That's my girl! Always thinking ahead!

Tuesday, June 24, 2008


(that's how Chiara, our tour guide, woke us when we fell asleep on the bus on the train). I've been sleeping pretty good since we've been home (w/ the help of a sleeping pill each night but it's really helped me get back on track -- no jet lag).
Yesterday I unpacked my suitcase and did a few things around the house. I tried to take a little nappy in the afternoon but the phone rang a couple of times and the doorbell rang. Debbie called yesterday afternoon and invited me to walk w/ her around the track while the boys were at All-star practice. I lost 7 lbs. in Europe and would like to keep them off! After practice Chris & I took the girls to Sal's for a bite to eat.

Today KJ gets her veneer on the tooth she broke at the beach during spring break. Have you ever seen the movie "Dennis the Menance" w/ Walter Matthau and the scene where Dennis accidentally breaks Mr. Wilson's dentures so he replaces the teeth w/ chicklets gum ? He then gets his picture taken for the garden club and when he smiles he has these HUGE 2 front bucky-beaver teeth??? Well, I'm afraid that's what KJ's gonna look like! ha! ha!

T-bone got her first driving lesson last night (much to her father's dismay). After my evening walk at the school, T jokingly asked if she could drive. The parking lot was basically empty so I said sure. She put my car in reverse, backed out of the parking spot, drove around the parking lot, parked the car, got out and we switched seats. We met Chris at the Italian restaurant and she couldn't wait to tell him. He wasn't very happy.

Mr. Sherman
Last lax post of the day. I promise!
Here's a link to and an article about Jeremy Sherman, one of the boys from Chris's all-star team. Jeremy was in a terrifying car accident and is truly a remarkable young man. Unfortunately, the article fails to mention that Jeremy was the state's first ever academic all-American for the sport. Also, pay extra close attention to the photo used (w/ out permission I might add!!!!). Notice how the photographer captures the fire in Jeremy's eyes??? Damn! I'm good!!! I think I might need to contact a lawyer about copywright infringement.

Senior Showcase

Brye French, one of the boys who just graduated this year, was invited to play in the Senior Showcase this weekend in Chicago (one of 96 players across the country!). If you click on this US Lacrosse home page link, there's another link directly under the yellow bar that says "French Territory." There's a great article about Brye and a great picture (taken by YOURS TRULY) of both Brye and Jeremy Sherman from Huntsville. Both boys were the state's first ever lacrosse All-Americans. The article frustrates me a bit because instead of focusing on the program we're trying to build here, they focused on the football coaching "scandal" and MTV's 2-A-Days (which is weirder because Brye didn't even go to high school there!).

Pics and Stuff

Trying to catch up my photos. I thought it would be easier to make a slide show from each city/country we visited rather than one big blob. So, here are some pics from London. Just the highlights, won't bore ya' w/ all the silly photos I took. I was fascinated w/ the pub signs. Each pub had a really cool name and a unique sign hanging out front. One of the store we went into had a big display of coasters -- one from each famous pub in London. T & I did have fish & chips one day but I forgot to take a picture. T & I both LOVED the Eiffel Tower and and the time we spent in Paris but I think we really got into the "vibe" of London.

Just spent two lovely days at the Alabama Sports Festival and no I'm not being facetious. It was a really great event for the boys. Chris divided the boys up amongst several teams and I always love seeing a Vestavia boy playing alongside a Mt. Brook boy. This festival was nice because rising 9th graders were invited to play. I think this was the first time one family had their 2 boys playing on the same team. Very cool. As always, these kinds of things don't run smoothly w/out volunteers. Lots of dad's came out to coach, lots of dad's officiated and one kind family ran the water and Gatorade tent all weekend. I think Chris enjoyed not coaching for once. I know he was able to watch most, if not all of the games because he's commented on "so & so had an awesome game, so & so was great on defense today" etc.

This week I need to concentrate on getting my suitcase 100% unpacked. Luv, luv, luv to pack & prepare for a trip. Hate to unpack. :-)

Europa '08

So T & I arrived back in B'ham around 6:20 PM Thursday night. The return flight was uneventful w/ a long lay-over in Dulles. So glad to be back home in my own bed w/ lots of Charmin. I missed KJ terribly. I missed Chris too but spoke w/ him and texted him several times thru-out the trip so I never felt out of the loop w/ him.

WOW. Where do I begin? What an incredible trip and it was so wonderful to share the experience w/ T.

We had the overnight flight to Rome. There was another EF Tour from Texas w/ basically the same itinerary as us. Our group was all girls, their group was all boys. Very cute boys. So, the kids all hung out together in the back of the plane and flirted w/ each other all night. We ran into these kids the entire trip and everytime they saw us, they would yell, "Hey Alabama!!!"

In Rome we toured the Coliseum, the Roman Forum (ruins), The Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and our tour guide pointed out Sofia Loren's apartment. We toured the Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica and saw the Sistine Chapel. As a Catholic, it felt like the mother ship calling me home. We also spent the day in Assisi on our way to Florence for the night. Assisi was the most picturesque little village I have ever seen. It was so beautiful and so perfect it actually felt like a Disney set at Epcot. Our room in Florence was very quaint and Italian-esqe. We had a floor to ceiling set of double doors w/ a little balcony overlooking a garden. Spent the day in Florence and saw a replica of David (our tour guide explained the original is reserved exclusively for "academia"). We went to the Doumo (forgive me, I can't recall the exact name of the church right now). We went to a demonstration at a leather-making factory which was pretty interesting. While in the flea market in Florence, T & I ran into Kourtney Kardashian and the mom (Bruce Jenner’s wife); I’ll post pics on my blog. They were very, very nice and Kourtney told T she was pretty; made T-bone’s day!! We saw the Leaning tower of Pisa and from Florence we took the overnight train to Paris and slept in a “coachette” (that was an experience I’ll never forget). The Texas boys were also on our train so the kids all hung out together.

We hit the ground running in Paris. Since we spent the night on the train, I'm wearing a hat in all my Paris pics to cover my bad hair day. Paris was amazing. Every one else went to Versailles but T & I ventured out on our own. We explored the Metro system and had a lovely lunch at a sidewalk cafe. We walked to Notre Dame and met our group for dinner. After dinner we all went to the Eiffel Tower, ate crepes from a sidewalk vendor (delish!) and did an evening river cruise. The days are sort of running together but I know it was Monday when we saw the Mona Lisa in the Louvre and T & I walked up the Champs Elysee all the way to the Arc De Triomphe. We climbed all 284 steps to the top for an amazing view of the city. On the way up to the Arc De Triomphe we stopped in several swanky stores and had fun in the Disney store. They were playing Hannah Montana music and T & I stood there and dance and sang to "Best of Both Worlds." After the Arc we walked over to the Hard Rock for a pin and shot glass. A group of German boys asked me to take their pic in the Hard Rock and then they wanted a pic of all them w/ T right smack in the middle. So, some boys in Germany have a pic of T in their scrapbook tonight. That night after dinner a bunch of us went up to Montmatre and climbed the steps at Sacre Coeur (Sacred Heart) for an incredible view of the city. Everyone we ran into in Paris was very, very friendly and helpful.

Tuesday morning, we took the chunnel to London and spent the afternoon at Covenant Gardens shopping and having lunch. We saw Wicked our first night in London and it was incredible. Very different from the book (which I hated w/ a passion). I will totally take KJ when it comes here in April '09. We had a bus tour Wednesday morning and saw the church where Charles & Di got married. I don't remember the exact order we saw things but at some point we drove across the Tower Bridge and walked to Buckingham Palace. After a lunch of fish & chips we toured the Tower of London and saw the Crown Jewels. We went to the Hard Rock so T could get a pin and pick-up a shot glass for Chris. We had high tea at Harrod's and I bought KJ a vanilla-scented bear from there. We walked around Piccadilly Circus for a bit. So much to do, so little time. T & I both loved London & Paris and became total Anglo- and Francophiles. You should have seen us using the Metro is Paris and the Underground in London. We were like total locals!

TTFN (ta-ta for now!)

I heart Facebook

OK. I'll admit it. I'm addicted to Facebook. Today I added my "stripper name" application. My stripper name stinks. It's Kitty Razorjuice. Isn't that stupid and terrible? Alison, if you're reading this, your stripper name is Alexis Moonbottom which is a heck of a lot nicer than Kitty Razorjuice.

Dirty Rotten Stinkin Vandals

Looks like no one will be enjoying our neighborhood pool today or anytime in the immediate near future. Vandals broke in last night and did some damage. We have had more problems at our pool in the last couple of years, it's become a serious issue. We've had cameras installed but the kids know they're there and avoid them.

This time tomorrow . . .

we'll be at the airport (guess in Italian it would aeroporto or something like that).

I think T & I (especially me) need to go thru our suitcase and take a few things out. The coordinator sent out an e-mail reminding us that the weight limit is 50 lbs. Yikes. Fortunately it's summertime so all our stuff is shorts and t-shirts. I'll be bringing my purse and one tote bag and T will have a tote bag that she's counting as her purse and the small rolling carry-on bag. I'll be in charge of the big suitcase we're sharing. I always over-pack but I am trying hard to keep things to a minimum this trip. Need to make room for the souvenirs we'll bring home. Don't laugh but I did buy a roll of bubble wrap and I packed some tissue paper. I learned my lesson on my Vegas trip last year. KJ likes snowglobes so I bought her one at the M&M store. I had it on my carry-on bag and they told me it was more than 3 oz. liquid. Well, my luggage was already checked so I ran around to the different gift shops asking if one of them could mail the stupid snow globe to the house. The Bellagio gift shop at the airport said they would gladly do it for around $15 (snow globe was less than $5) oh but wait a minute. I didn't buy the snow globe in their store, I bought it somewhere else so no. They can't do it. The post office at the airport didn't open until 10 AM and our flight was 9:45 AM. My cell phone battery had totally died that trip so I couldn't get in touch w/ Chris who was already at the gate. I ended up giving the snow globe to a maintenance man.

Not much going on today; T & I are going for our mani's & pedi's. Evvy slept over last night and the girls woke up around 9 AM. I like when she sleeps over; don't hear a peep out of the girls. KJ has some other friends that run around the house like crazy people.

Where did the weekend go???

"Look kids! Parliament! Big Ben!!!" (one of my favorite all-time movie quotes!!) from European vacation w/ Chevy Chase. Cracks me up every time!

Can't believe it's 6:30 Sunday night. What happened??

Nice relaxing day today; went to Panera for bagel's. Grilled dogs down at the pool and worked on my tan for a couple of hours. Funny thing happened at the pool today. T's "boyfriend" Austin came to the pool w/ his friend Jay. A nosy busy-body neighbor immediately got up out of her seat, marched right over to me and asked who was the boy w/ T. I explained it's her boyfriend Austin. This neighbor proceeded to tell me that he's very nice looking and T has made a good choice and she approves. Um. Yeah. Right. T's been losing sleep over whether or not Mrs. X likes/dislikes her boyfriend. Felt like kicking the neighbor in the ass, telling her to sit down and mind her own business.

Chris took T to get an early b-day present ... a new iPod to take on our trip since her's is no longer working for some strange reason. How convenient. How very, very convenient.

KJ has a bad headache and is laying in my bed under the covers w/ the blinds shut. She needs to snap out of it because Evvy is coming over at 7 pm to spend the night.

T & I worked on our packing today and tried to finalize everything. Here's our itinerary and the weather outlook for each city (not a very good weather outlook I might add):

6/11 - 6/13/2008 ROME
June 11 - 80°F Partly Cloudy
June 12 - 78°F Showers
June 13 - 74°F T-Showers

6/13 - 6/14/2008 FLORENCE
June 13 - 69° Heavy Rain
June 14 - 69°F T-Showers

6/14 - 6/15/2008 Night train to PARIS

6/15 - 6/17/2008 PARIS
June 15 - 62° F Light Rain
June 16 - 62°F Light Rain
June 17 - 65°F Partly Cloudy

6/17 - 6/19/2008 LONDON
June 17 - 69° Partly Cloudy
That's all the info I have on London weather for now.

Starting to freak out a little.

leprechaun siting in Mobile


Trying to wake up. Sitting here w/ KJ watching the Wizard of Oz. Believe it or not, she's never seen it before. It's the big twister scene and she's a little nervous. She's yelling at the chickens on the farm to run away.

Busy day yesterday. The girls & I met Chris for lunch, did some banking, ran to the mall to get T some appropriate length shorts, stopped at Wrapsody to buy some gifts and then Chris & I went to Greg's art gallery opening last night w/ friends. The gallery is in an incredible space -- exposed brick walls, etc. They had a great turn-out and we wish them lots of luck. Scott & Debbie took us to the Fish Market downtown for dinner (never been there before --I had the lobster bisque and fried scallops. I was stuffed after my soup and salad and brought everything else home in a doggie bag!). We went back to Scott & Debbie's and sat on their patio laughing late into the night. I didn't sleep too great last night and then that damn squirrel was in the gutter again bright and early this morning. I really need to invest in a bb gun.

Now it's the munchkin scene and T's totally freakin' out. She's repeating to herself "they're just small children, they're just small children." She's actually sitting here w/ her hands over her eyes. Little sister isn't helping the situation, she keeps saying, "there's thousands of them!!" T actually had to leave the room; she really can't handle the whole "little people" thing.
Chris made me waffles for breakfast this morning and now I'm doing tons and tons of laundry today. I only recently found out why I have such a laundry problem -- I'm doing all of T's friend's laundry. The other day I washed a really cute white baby-doll top from the Gap. I asked T when she bought it and she said it was Katie's. Today I washed 2 beach towels that I've never seen before ... one was Jay's and one was Katie's.

Friday, June 6, 2008


Had so much fun last night @ Becky's house (which is GORGEOUS btw!). Lotta alcohol and good food and a lotta laughs. Kinda sad, sort of like the end of an era . . . Shawn and Teresa won't be there next year, Tricia is moving on, Margaret & I won't have a class in the fall. Sounds like Susan is on the fence, too. I really enjoyed working w/ all of these ladies and it was very rare and unusual that we all got along and actually liked each other! We definitely have to get together more often.
Bed is made, laundry is going, dishwasher is going. Have some errands to do today ... banking and I need to pick-up a couple of gifts and a few things at the grocery store and some prescriptions. Tonight is Greg's art gallery opening and Saturday night is a 40th surprise party. Sunday I need to finish up my packing and Monday T & I need mani's & pedi's and KJ needs a haircut.
We have to be at the airport by 8:30 AM Tuesday. WOW. We got our final itinerary yesterday and our hotel info for London & Paris. Very cool. As far as I can tell from the hotel websites, all of our hotels are 20-25 minutes outside of "city center." The hotel is Paris looks to be near the Expo (I'm guessing a convention center, perhaps?). We'll find out soon enough.

Oy!!! My head

Sitting on the couch nursing a major headache watching What not to Wear. Good Lord. I cannot believe what some of these people are wearing! I'm not saying I'm the most fashionable person but I try my hardest to find clothes that fit, I don't wear pajama pants out in public and I don't dress like a stripper. Maybe I should start dressing like a dork. I would love for someone to nominate me to go on the show. I could really use a $5,000 shopping spree in NYC and a complete make-over right about now.

Had a nice day w/ KJ and Magster @ the pool today. Every one's complaining about the heat but I didn't think it was terrible today. We were at the pool about 2 1/2 hours and yes, I did get in the pool a couple of times. Shocker. I did drink lots of water and I'm working on a golden tan.

Daughter #1 is home for the night and is not happy about it. Chris picked her up at her friend's pool on his way home from work (not the friend she spent the night with btw). He flat out told her no more back-to-back, consecutive sleep-overs. She's needs a night at home in between. We don't mind the sleep-overs, it's just that she never wants to come home! They're at one house for the night, the next day a friend calls and says her mom will pick everyone up and take them to her pool, she spends the day at their pool, then she wants to sleep over that friend's house, etc. It's a vicious cycle!!! Anyway, she's in for a rude awakening tomorrow. I've let the cleaning lady go for the summer (doesn't make sense w/ all of us home for the summer) and these 2 girls are gonna clean, clean, clean tomorrow.

Check out my Slide Show!

Tuesday, June 3, 2008


T & I went to her dance team meeting while KJ & Chris went to the store for a meeting w/ the boys. T went home w/ Katie to spend the night and on my way home I stopped and picked up the Magster. We have no plans tomorrow except to sit by the pool and work on our tans.

T got the cutest little outifts to wear to dance camp (unfortunately she will not be there). I had to break the news to the dance coach but she took it very well.

I'm trying to relax and catch up on some shows I've TiVo'd. I've been watching John & Kate Plus 8 a lot for some reason. Fascinating. I can hardly keep up w/ the 2 kids I have, what the hell would I do w/ 8 freakin' kids??? I would be heavily sedated staring out the window while the kids ate garbage off the floor.

My head feels so much lighter

I swear! I have a TON of hair. It's very fine but there's a lot of it. Jeffrey kept the length but got rid of a lot of weight. I now have swingy, fuller hair.

After my haircut I ran to WallyWorld to pick up some travel things T & I need. I have one travel adapter but I think I need one more. I was on a really neat website the other day and it showed the voltage for each country and they looked to be different. Probably have to get the travel adapter @ Bed, Bath & Beyond or something like that.

My girls are so lazy. It's 4:15 PM and they are both still in their pajamas.

KJ wants to Magster to sleep over (and we'd really like to hear all about their Disney trip!). T & I have a dance team meeting (this is the one where I break the news to the Coach that T-bone will not be attending dance camp due to a conflict in travel plans -- keep your fingers crossed!). Chris is meeting a couple of his all-stars up at the store to discuss something. He's not sure what. The boy's texted him and said they have things they want to discuss w/ him. These are also the boys who work at the store -- hope they're not planning a strike or something like that!

Hair 2day, Gone 2morrow

Getting my haircut today. I desperately need it. My hair has been really limp and lifeless lately. I need some "oomph" and some volume. Little people like me need big hair; it makes us appear taller than we really are. I can't tell you how many times people are shocked to hear I'm barely 5 ft. They always say, "I thought you were taller than that!" It's the big hair! I think I'm gonna grow it out a bit, too. I've enjoyed having it short but I also like pulling it into a ponytail for the summer. While I really can't stomach either Jessica Simpson OR Nicole Richie, I do like their haircuts. Hmmmm.....
Almost 10 AM and both girls are still sleeping.

So my colon & I have been getting along quite well the last couple of days. I need to call the dr. and get the results of my biopsy and find out it it's IBS or what. I'm sure if there was something really wrong they would have called me ASAP.

Day w/ the DDS

Started work today on KJ's cracked tooth. She was such a trooper. They gave her some laughing gas AND she had to have a shot. They filed down the offending tooth just a little bit and made an impression for a veneer. It should be ready in 2 weeks but I'll still be on my trip so I made the appointment for the week after my return. Chris could probably take her but he gets a little skirmish at the dentist. I promised KJ a McFlurry after her appointment, drove all the way to McD's but both their ice cream and McFlurry's machines were down.

After her happy meal, she took a little snooze on the couch and is now ready to rock & roll. She's already asked if she could have a freind sleep over. Since she's not the party animal her older sister is and hasn't really had a friend sleep-over all summer, I said yes.

Lazy, Rainy Day

Thought we were going to spend some time at the pool today but we had a lot of rain instead. We even had a little hail today, too. Didn't mind at all, we had a nice lazy rainy day. Chris grilled some chicken for dinner, T is at the movies w/ friends and then is planning to sleep over Emily F's. She hasn't hung out w/ Emily in a long, long time so I'm glad the girls are getting together.

We watched the MTV movie awards tonight and was little disappointed. MTV, who(m) always prides itself on being so cutting edge, produced a show tonight that felt like one big commercial. Everyone who has a movie coming out this summer was on the show. Very boring.

Took a nice, long hot shower and used Johnson & Johnson's Melt Stress away body wash and body lotion; lots of lavender.

Nuttin' 2 Do

No plans, don't have to be anywhere . . . I love it!

Chris is mowing the lawn and then I'm sure KJ will bug him to take her to the pool. She's half human, half mermaid and she's already rockin' a nice little tan.

Chris has made their hotel reservations for the beach so she's pretty happy about that.

KJ is getting her front tooth fixed tomorrow morning (the one she chipped at the beach on Spring Break). Tuesday I have a haircut appointment and Tuesday night T has a dance team meeting.
Chris mentioned something this morning about the b'ham news doing an article on his All-star team. Should be in Wednesday's paper; keep an eye out for it. Also check out:
