August 21 & 22
I write this as we embark on our 11-hour trip back to Colorado. As of now, I am sure most of you have heard about our victory against the Rotterdam. It was a great way to end our foreign tour. Our defense has improved a lot since our first game in Paris.
Our senior "Diablo" Chen filled up the stat sheet, which leads me to my next statement. Due to complaints from other teammates, I fear I can no longer call Sabatino, Diablo anymore. After You give a guy a nickname like Diablo and he finishes the game with 11 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, and 6 steals, I think it is time for a change. With that in mind, I will now try my best to call him - the "Saburai."
With our last game under our belts, we had one more day to enjoy Europe before we left. The following day we took a tour of the Anne Frank Museum. I am sure most, if not all, know the story of Anne Frank. It is a very sad one and helps you appreciate the little things in life- no matter how cliché that sounds. After taking a tour of Anne Frank Museum, we headed back to our hotel preparing for a farewell cruise.
Throughout the one hour and forty-five minute cruise, we were fed great food and given the chance to learn about Amsterdam's history. The cruise was a great way to end a trip we will, without a doubt, remember for the rest of our lives.
After the cruise, everybody found different ways to enjoy their last night in Amsterdam. I made my way down to the lobby and charmed my way into getting free WIFI for the night. I do plan on telling compliance this, after all I do want to keep my eligibility. Just being facetious, seriously most of us were too tired to further explore Amsterdam after the cruise.
I think I can speak for all of my teammates, when I say we are extremely thankful. We had a great opportunity to come overseas to get better and bond as a team. Culturally, we were exposed to a lot. Now, it is time to get back to Boulder and prepare even more for our upcoming season. Thanks Buff Nation for making all of this possible. Go Buffs!!!
