Dateline San Jose: In extraordinary fashion team Pepper has delivered team Cancer a devastating defeat. Cancer brought all it's power, a team led by T-Cell Lymphoma known for it's strong crushing offense and also a team known for their trick plays and fouls. And team cancer did not pull any punches in this match they hit hard from the beginning. If you let team cancer score first then teams usually don't walk away winners. But Team Pepper led by their captain Emily, beat cancer ever step of the way. For every curve ball thrown Emily's way, she deflected the threat, and seemed to do it with a smile. Team Pepper looked a little disoriented early in the match, but you could see that once they got in line things just started clicking. Cancer, as usual, wasn't a good sport, played dirty and still got completely shut out. As for MVP, it's pretty clear who gets that award today. Yes, Tracy, Chris, Haley, Dr. Link and Karolina played really well, but Emily Pepper really deserves the credit for the win. Team Pepper is looking to retire with a 1-0 record.

(733 is how many days it has been since Emily was diagnosed with cancer, we won ever day.)

I was betting on Team Pepper the whole way!! Celeste reminded me when I tucked her in on Friday night after her birthday party, that today was also special because it was Emily's last day of chemo. We are so happy for you guys and so relieved. Yeah Team Pepper! You should be so proud of yourselves! -Cathie
