Day 21: International Association of Star Shaped Badminton Federation Association (IASSBFA)

Yes. IASSBFA is a real thing. Believe it. This game and association federation association was invented on Friday March 29 around 6:00pm. Of course, T was the one who started this outrageous game. I won't go into details of how the game is played because it is just way too complex for the simple minded and unskilled to handle. It took us all many years to become this skilled at star shaped badminton.

I was the team captain of my team of girls, and I believe T was the captain of his team of boys. My team consisted of: Nike, Alex, Vicky, Cass, myself and Ashley but then she was substituted out for Clara in the second inning due to confidential purposes. T's team had: Brandon, Armin, Yifei, Chris, himself, and Mark but then after the first inning, Brandon was subbed out for Jason, and T was subbed out for Nick. I have to say, that was the best thing that happened to the girl's team since 07 because their subs were horrible :D.

Long story short, the girls lost to the boys after 5 innings, but nonetheless we still hold the IASSBFA record for 53 consecutive hits and that is NOT a lie... We lost because we were all rusty and didn't practice a lot since 07. Oh the African Regionals in 07 was our year...and Clara, our sub for Ashley, was not bad, she was the winner of the Antarctica Regionals in 2010. And our team was the most diverse, with all the reigning champs on it. We had: Nike, 37th best star shaped badminton player in Germany (not bad..); Cass, 34th best star shaped badminton player in Canada (not bad..); Vicky, representing Taiwan with her first regional win in 03 (an experienced player.. we know :D); Clara the reigning champ of the Antartica Regionals in 2010; and myself -the captain, the brains and the skills... (not a lie.).

I can still remember the African Regionals in 07. That was the year I met Nike on the SSB court... Those were the days. Even Mama T remembers our dominance in 07. :)
