A great story from a WAKA Kickball player

I wanted to take a moment to tell a quick story...

I was born and raised in Anaheim Hills, California. I've lived here my entire life. I've been actively involved with Waka for several years now and have met countless friends while playing in several different leagues.

Last season, I met a wonderful young woman through Waka and we have been dating for several months now. Unfortunately, she receently got laidoff and decided to move back home to the San Fransisco Bay area and asked me to join her. Now understand that I've lived my entire life within a five mile radius so the thought of leaving everything I've ever known is somewhat terrifying to me. One of my biggest reluctances to move is the fact that I'll be leaving all of the friends I've had my whole life.

My girlfriend took my hand, looked at me reassuringly and said very enthusiastically, "You don't have to worry about friends, they're are Waka leagues where we'd be moving to!" Thats all she had to say.

I'm currently packing up all my stuff and looking forward to moving this Saturday and joining my new Waka League in Yerba Buena that starts next Wednesday.

All I really just wanted to say, "Thank you." Not only is Waka a comfort to me in this transition period in my life, but it is also the only reason I met my wonderful girlfriend :-)

Thank you,
Andy B.
