Having retired from my Tokorozawa Outlaws team, I have been hanging out doing some coaching, taking part in some of the practices and even getting some hitting in. But this week, I put on the zebra stripes at the request of the head coach of the team for a game, we will classify as Mud Bowl 2009.
Tokorozawa was playing a team from the Collegiate ranks here in Japan as a practice game. What should have been an easy game for the Outlaws, was made quite difficult by the fact that the ground was muddy, dirt, and sloppy as heck due to the rainy season having set in.
Tokorozawa wound up winning the game in the end, I got some sorely needed running in and it was good to see things from the sideline for a change. While it was nice not to have to get muddy, I sort of wished I had been out there playing.
