One of the biggest drawbacks to spending the semester abroad has been missing the law school's annual beer-league softball season. I've especially missed playing with my team, "Tequila Mockingbird." (If you don't get the significance of our name, say "te-qui-la" out loud, very slowly. It took me like 2 weeks before I figured it out.)
Anyway, Tequila Mockingbird is the third (and last) incarnation of our group's softball team. We started our 1L year very modestly as a ragtag bunch, brought together by ACO and a love of the game/beer. We improved during our 2L year as "SLUbacca," going several games into the playoffs. Now, in our final year, the team has almost reached the top. TM has greatly benefited from some key off-season additions. (I can't help but think that my absence from the team this season may actually be contributing to the team's success...) Now, Tequila Mockingbird is in line to win the championship on Saturday...we need just 2 more victories and we will be the champions!
