WOW! What a blast!! We all went to Chiro Games this past weekend
in Cocoa Beach, Florida, and I must say I almost didn't come back!
(jk..or am I?)
A quick background on Chiro Games: It's held once a year in
November down in Florida where all the chiropractic schools (18 of
them) send intramural sports teams (softball, flag football,
volleyball, swimming, soccer, etc.) to compete in a giant
tournament and claim the 'quasi honor' of Chiro Games' champion.
Your school's teams can take it as seriously (weekly practices) or
not seriously (show up buzzed) as you want. The best part is that
it's a great excuse to go down to Florida with a bunch of your
classmates, meet other chiropractic students from around the
country, and enjoy the weather, some good competition, the beach,
and not worry about classes.
I participated on the softball team (co-ed only) that brought a
studly team down there and played extremely well, but just ran into
a few schools that looked like they brought double A minor league
teams. We started out well beating the first team 15-0. Then one
team (Logan) hit 16 homeruns against us and we lost 37-23. Is that
a basketball score? Yup, they must have recruited guys to Chiro
Games lol. Anyway, we played and had an epic comeback in our first
playoff game Sunday, only to lose in the quarterfinals in a
nail-biter of a game.
I almost didn't go on this trip with a tight budget, but looking
back, I'm so excited I did. So many stories (many of them I cannot
share publicly :), great camaraderie, and strengthening
relationships with your fellow classmates you'd never thought you'd
get a chance to do. Solid time.
I'll leave you with an inside joke you won't get unless you were
on the trip...."Oh, your sausage legs..." BHAHA
