April, 2001 took me to Rimini, Italy for the world-famous "Paganello"
tournament. Thanks to Chris Hurwitz for putting the team together
(even though he didn't play on it).
Someday I'll put together some real pages about the tournament
[ed. note: it's now a year after the tournament, and I haven't done
this yet, so I guess I never will], but the clamor of people who
just want to see some photos is overwhelming...well, actually, I

"last supper" features Ozzie as our very own Jesus. Worth
The others more or less stand alone.
