Back in Columbus

It has only been two weeks since the Dare2Share Revolution, but Carmen, Adam and Jackie have returned to Columbus. This time they have come for a different purpose and they have invited Becca and I to join them.

Carmen's volleyball team is just one of approximately 85 teams playing at the Columbus Covention Center. They are playing at the opposite end of the complex from the massive area where Dare2Share occured but that didn't stop Adam from showing me the place to get "the best coffee in the world".

On Saturday night, we all went out to Johnny Rocket's at Easton Mall after the pool play was over. Adam and Becca also spent a good deal of time in the hotel swimming pool and hot tub. The outdoor temperature never climbed above the teens, so Adam didn't get a chance to play basketball in the courtyard.

After a better day of pool play on Sunday, we all went out to Buca di Beppo off of Front Street. It was a great place to eat with a large group of people. Good Italian food served family style in classy decor that displayed heritage of Italy and lots of art from the Catholic Church.

While refereeing a game, Carmen was embarrassed to see her mother and brother, sharing an iPod and jumping up and down to Revolution. She just can't take them anywhere.

Wish I could have been there with you all. Meatloaf, good luck tomorrow! We miss all of you. Have a safe trip back.

Meatloaf's team was the champion of their bracket on Monday! ( Just happened to be the bottom four 14 year old teams of the 16 total )
