Last weekend I traveled with my lacrosse team to Chicago for a Big Ten Tournament. We left firday afternoon around 3:30. Driving down there was so much fun. We had two 15 passanger vans so it was pretty crowded. The van i was in the pretty much sang along to songs and danced until we reached our first pit stop. On the way up there we had to stop to get gas, during the time we stopped we ended up starting to dance in the middle of the gas station. Before we knew it the whole team was dancing to thriller in the middle of the gas station. The rest of the way to Chicago we spent talking and playing 'get to know you games'. We arrived at our hotel about 12:30 so we all went to bed right away. Saturday morning we had to wake up fairly early around 9 to eat breakfast and get ready for our games. The first game we played was against Illinois and we beat them 14-1. We had back to back games so we had about 5 minutes to get ready for Michigan State. We played realy good against Michigan State, but lost 4-7 to them. Not bad though considering they are ranked 15th in the nation (last year we were ranked 54th). Our last game of the day was aganist Indiana. After the first 10 minutes of the game, i took a direct shot to my chest from one of there offense. I ended up sitting out the rest of the game just to make sure i was ok. Later that night we went out for pizza and went back to the hotel to do some team bonding. Overall it was an amazing experience. I made some good memories and made some new friends.
