Played my first game for a new team on Saturday. Apparently our team name is AC/DC. Which is terrible. But fittingly so, for our quality of play. I suppose it was our first game, so the miscommunications and simple errors can be chalked up to that. Still, the name will always be terrible.
In further AC/DC related news, my favorite beer of the day was 21st Amendment Brewery's Back in Black 'American IPA.' Not normally a fan of IPAs, but the stoutness of this brew really clicks for me. It didn't really mesh with the 102+ temperatures during the cornhole tournament (lost in the group stages), but sitting by the fire pit later in the night... most excellent.
