Tell a funny/embarrassing story about yourself or your team.

When our team went to Costa Rica, we had lunch at a school where we were doing service. Later that night, we had practice at a turf field in the city. This place had one bathroom with no toilet paper, and about a third of our team got violently ill at the field. As I was throwing up in a trash can near the field, a little girl stood by the fence and watched me, then proceeded to look into the trash can when I went back to practice.
