A Boring Friday In Utah's Dixie

After crash landing on my bed at 2:30 a.m. in Utah, I felt like I slept for at least 10 hours. No dice. I looked over at the clock and the time was 7:08 a.m. Dammit! Not even five full hours of sleep. I always sleep like shit away from my huge bed and it appears that this trip will be no different, no matter how sleep deprived I become.

I stumble blindly to the bathroom, jump in the shower and get ready for the day. We don’t play today, so it’s pretty much open to do whatever we want to do. By the time I get out of the bathroom, my best friend is also up and we decide to go to Shoney’s for breakfast. After that, we took a trip down to the fields for a look. It is beautiful in St. George. Towering cliffs of red rock as far as the eye can see. Bright sunshine, very warm, absolutely no humidity. The fields are gorgeous, situated in a valley. See for yourself.


Anyhow, after taking that in, we all decide to head back to the hotel to hang by the pool, drink beer, play cards and get LOUD. Let’s just say mission accomplished and leave it at that. No sense bringing the front desk into this discussion. At about 2:30, I went back to the room and caught an hour of sleep.

The plan was to go to a park and hit at 5:30. 5:15 rolls around and we do just that. We hit for about two hours and then head back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. There’s a little tension among the team for the rest of the evening. Everyone is very excited about the tournament tomorrow. Dinner is rather low key at Ruby Tuesday’s.

All in all a pretty boring day. In the next installment, you’ll see how quickly dreams turn to impossibilities while you stand helpless, unable to stop it from unfolding right before your eyes.
