Good news, our lads beat Sweden on Sunday in the opening day of WCF Golf Croquet World Team Championship block play with a 4-2 score. Today we play the Irish, which will be a really big game as explained below.
USA v. Sweden
Our play today was solid, but not spectacular. Ben, Danny and David were solid in winning their singles matches. Our doubles teams split, with Ben/Sherif winning their match but Danny/David losing their match. The highlight in doubles was when Ben made hoop 9 from the boundary line with a two bounce jump shot that took us to 5-4 in game two of the doubles.

Happy New Year's Eve! We're getting this 39th edition in just under the wire, but I feel like 2012 was a good year for the Morning Coffee newsletter. Growth certainly hasn't been explosive, but it has been steady. At this point, it's clear that it is the crown jewel of the Croquet Network media empire. That's a happy little surprise as the original intent was just to provide a reminder and links to the now defunct Croquet Network print and digital magazine issues.
