EYEWITNESS ACCOUNT: February 24, 2048

One evening at the Kaname household, Mitakihara Magi head football coach Tatsuya Kaname was busy making the morning coffee. He noticed his sister, Dr. Madoka Kaname, was reading the news, visibly bored. "No meetings with anybody and no administrative stuff to take care of," she groaned. "Tatsuya, what should I do? I am so bored."

"Hmmm, let's see, Madoka," he said. Cue the light bulb. "Oh, that's right, have you been to the Mitakihara Country Club?"

"No, I haven't. I only know that the Country Club is the home golf course for our university teams, but that's it."

"You wanna work on your golf swing, my dear sister-wife?"

"Don't I have to pay greens fees, though?"

"If I recall," Tatsuya said while sipping his Java, "as the first family of the university, the Kaname combine has lifetime membership to the Country Club. So we get to play for free."

"But are you gonna play, Tatsuya?"

"Play? Ha! I'm gonna be your caddy." Half an hour later, Tatsuya was driving the two of them to the Country Club for a round of golf. 

"So what's the deal now with the football team?" Madoka asked him.

"Well...the coaching staff is going to meet on the 1st to prepare to host a series of tryouts that will take place in March and April. Then we are going to appropriate scholarships and get our team finalized by June."


"Now, here's the kicker Madoka: we are trying to get all 70 spots filled, but there are no guarantees we can get this done. This is a process that is going to take time. Hopefully we can fill those slots."

"It's nice to see that this course is open during the night," Madoka said as Tatsuya parked the car outside the clubhouse.

"There are two courses. One of them is the 18-hole Championship Course, used by the university's golf teams. The other is the 9-hole Test Course, which simulates different environments and has some unique perks. Your choice, my dear sister-wife."

"The latter."

As Madoka worked on her golf swing, Tatsuya thought about the current state of the football team and whatever needed to be done to get a full roster of 70 ready for 2048. The program took a big hit from the tragedy, and golf was one way for the two of them to put it all behind them.

"Hey, you scored...what is it...a -10?" Tatsuya said as the two of them walked back to the clubhouse.

"Yeah, pretty much," she said, clearly embarrassed.

"You're good at this. You got the gift, but your probably knew that by now. Shall we eat?"

"Yes, let's go, Tatsuya!"

"There you are!" Sayaka Miki said, greeting them.

"You guys! I didn't expect you all to come down here," Tatsuya said. 

"We watched you via our little TV up in the corner," Kyouko Sakura said, pointing.

"Kaname-san, you are pretty good at golf," said Mami Tomoe, who was quietly munching on a Danish.

"Coach Kaname is the greatest caddie in the world," Sayaka said, elbowing him a little. "Riiiiight?"

"Yare yare. Well, that can only mean one thing...Pierre!"

"Ya?" said the bartender who owned the clubhouse restaurant.

"A plate of sliders for Madoka Team No. 1 and a plate of fries, along with a tray of suicides."

"Drink, right?"

"Yes, the drinks."

"Ya! And you get it half price because we all know who you are, n'est-ce-pas?"

"Oui, oui, Monsieur Pierre."


"So this is what I get for having to play golf in the offseason because we don't have tryouts for a few weeks, ladies," Tatsuya said as the food arrived for the groups to eat. "The food and drinks, by rule, are on me."
