Got to sleep in this morning. Spent a little time doing another light workout in the hotel gym. Drove north to meet with some work clients in the morning and finally met up with teammates at the hotel around 3:00 PM. Made another trip to the fields to do some more throwing and running. Feeling a lot better after a couple of days at altitude. Back to the hotel for snacks and strategy talks. We discussed some of our plans for our “D” and “O” lines. The winners here are going to be the teams that run hard and force turnovers. Man is the Plan for the entire tournament. Off for dinner, spent a few minutes in the jacuzzi to relax. To bed early as we have a 9:00 AM game tomorrow morning.
