Me: 
Will there be any racist teams there?  I do not want to see any White Power groups playing basketball.
 
Waiting,
Sal

Trip: 
NO.  RACISM & OTHER IGNORANCE WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

Me: 
Fantastic.  This is how I know you are having a good tournament.  I have been to a few in the past where they were VERY RACIST.  They said words I WILL NEVER REPEAT. EVER!  The only thing that racists are good for is NOTHING! I HOPE YOU AGREE.  I will be excited to play in your great tournament.

Trip:
Ok, Great.  I do agree with you. 
Also, Please send me an email with your 4 players name, age, and info and sign up on the website to register for the tourney.

Me: 
Fantastic Trip.  I am very excited to play in your tournament!
 
I lost the website link, could you send it to me again?
 
As far as our team goes…
 
It will be me, Sal Fontaine, 32, Italian.
 
Then I have two black guys – I think their names are like Jamal or DeMarcus or something like that.  (Where do they get those names? LOL)  I got them because they are tall and probably good at basketball.  I really want to win
 
I havent chosen a fourth player yet, but it will probably be either my neighbor or this guy I met at work.  They are oriental and mexican respectively.  They will be the alternate and probably will not play (and they are short)
 
I am not sure how old my teammates are but I can find out soon.
 
Also, do we get to choose a team name?

Trip:
Absolutely, please choose a team name.  You have to send me the names and ages of each teammate and they must sign up at <ripoff website>

Look forward to seeing you there. 

Me: 
We will be called “Slam Drunk”
 
Do we get jerseys?

Trip: 
No, there are no jerseys, you guys will need to bring one white tee and one dark colored tee

Me: 
My teammates have quit on me.  They claim they never said they would play with me.  Can I play 3 vs 1?  I am very good.  I need the money.

Trip (1 day later):
It was really fun.  I had to play with some other guys I didn’t know, they weren’t very good, but we got 3rd place.  1st place was a $900 prize.  Oh well. 
Sign up at <ripoff website> and we’ll play together next time.

So… I don’t know where to begin.  Trip says racism won’t be tolerated, yet he tolerates me quite well – he even offers to play with me at the next tournament!

Trip, you sir are a true conundrum.

Namaste.
