Thanksgiving 2015: Off to Dubai
(Flying Emirates Business class is like nothing else!)
In all honesty, to my surprise, I was named to the squad that will participate in Dubai and South Africa to start off the World Series.
Surprised becuase there are some really quality players on the squad and I wasn't sure how the coaches would do selections: reward the players that have been training together for a long time or give an opportunity to a player new to their system, that has a strong potential to get better. I'm not saying I didn't think I deserved it, I obviously did enough to earn that spot. My enthusiasm grows each day because I know the longer I'm with this group training, the better I'll become.
So that's that, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I'm on my way to Dubai, thinking of everyone enjoying good food and good company.
