Photos still trickling in! http://www.flickr.com/photos/tothefront/sets/72157607241525790/ has 37 shots of the bronze medal game between Japan and Great Britain. Hopefully this weekend I can get the Women's and Mixed games done, otherwise it'll be at least five more days.
Back in the country and finally processing the rest of the gold medal games. It takes hours to upload photos one by one on the wugc2008 site, so I'm being lazy and just putting them on flickr instead. 38 shots are up at http://www.flickr.com/photos/tothefront/sets/72157607172935421/
The bronze medal match between Team Australia (Barramundis) and Team USA (Shazam Returns) was sure to be another good battle. I say another because they met back on Day 1 of Worlds when they put on a great show for the crowd on the showcase field #1. Team USA won that battle, but only by a margin of 3 points. They started the game strong and rattled the Aussies with a big first half lead.
It is such a wonderful thing that the human spirit searches for each other in competition. It is one of those things that bring us together. We run, we dive, we practice, we run, we practice, we throw, we do it again and again. The search continues through out our life and that is really what brings us together. How lucky can we be?
All of my photos from Thursday-Saturday of the tournament are now live.
Check them out and enjoy.

Just like the title says: I'm missing silver northface jacket with prescription glasses in pocket and I'd love to get it back. If you run across anything like that email me at email@example.com
The game between Team USA (San Francisco's Fury) and Team Canada (Vancouver's Traffic) was a much anticipated match-up. Team USA had little trouble beating most of the teams they played at this year's WUGC. Their first game against Team Australia was a good battle, but after that they pretty much rolled most teams (including the serving of a bagel to Team Mexico: 17 - 0).
This isn't the first time Team USA (Sockeye) and Team Japan (Buzz Bullets) have met on the playing field. In fact, these two teams have become quite good international friends, and the competition between them is always top notch.
