BIG 8 is a basketball and soccer tournament for people in the Varsity teams (15 years or older). BIG 8 is one of my favorite things during the whole school year because you get to meet new people, play sports, and have a lot of fun. This year will be my second BIG 8 as a basketball player, and I can't wait to go. I think it will be very exciting especially this year because all of my closest friends are going. One of the best part of this tournament is the game playing because here people actually come to watch the games and cheer for the athletes, which barely ever happens at Chapel. At BIG 8 there is actual cheering, and people, who show their support for you and your teammates. This tournament brings together eight different schools from all over Brazil, and even some other countries. This makes it even better because you get to interact with new people and make new friends. It is also a great way to have an amusing time with the friends you already have. You get to be together for a week and it usually brings you closer together. It's a awesome memory to have because you can look back and see how easy and fun life was, even if it was for only a week. And of course, another good thing is you miss school :)

It is sad how the teams here don't get a lot of support during their regular games. This is so different than in the States.
