Because we had won all our games in the first round, we skipped the quarter final. In the semifinal we played against the Pikes, another fraternity and won 1:0.

The final was postponed because we had tornado warnings and that was too dangerous to play outside.

So the big day has come on June 10th and the weather was awesome. We had to play against the Delts, which we already knew from the first round. The game was exciting and the atmosphere was great and at least we won 1:0!

After that we had a great party at Campus Village which nobody will ever forget.

Toronto

Our second station in Canada was Toronto. We stayed there from Saturday till Monday. The weather was perfect and so we had a really good time there. A highlight was the tour with a police boat. Three police men took us on a short trip around the Central Island of Toronto. Just amazing!
Aside from that it was a cool weekend with a lot of fun, and we were sad when we had to leave Canada.

Niagara Falls

On friday, May 22nd our apartment made – together with 3 other German guys (Tobias, Ilker and Peter) – a trip to Canada. Our first station was the Niagara falls. The falls were very impressive! Furthermore the Canadian Side is much better than the American is. The city of the same name like the falls is a very touristic place with a lot of attractions like a kermis. There are also nice clubs. At the evening we did party at one of these very nice clubs near the falls and it was great fun!

Texas Rangers vs Detroit Tigers

Just one sentence: boring, more boring, baseball…

After we had seen basketball and icehockey games, we finally saw a baseball game in Detroit on May 19th.
The weather was awesome and the stadium of the tigers is awesome as well.

In addition to the game: The atmosphere was very low and the game very boring. We only saw 4 points (no home-run) and at the end the Tigers won 4:0.
