I was working in Munich in 2007 for Sandoz.
Every Saturday, I took to Marienplatz to go to Starbucks. A few other Americans would get together for coffee.
One day, there were three people in front of me for coffee. I realized immediately they were Americans.
I asked them, “Where are you from?”.
One of the couples said their daughter was there for a women’s field hockey at Quinnipiac University. I told them that one of my friends, Char Morett was the coach for the field hockey team at Penn State. Her other friend said she was a Quinnipiac assistant coach, and she played for Char Morett at Penn State too.
The assistant coach also said that her head coach, Becca Main, was also at Penn State and also played for Char. She was meeting them at the fountain to get a group together shortly. She wanted me to join her to see Becca.
Becca introduced herself, and for some reason, she told me that she previously went to Pennsbury High School. It was another coincidence that it was the same high school as my son.
A few years ago, Char had a party at Penn State to celebrate her 50th birthday. My wife and I went and ran into a lot of friends, including Becca Main.
Today I work with my therapist, who also told me she went to Quinnipiac College. I have never met any Quinnipiac people before.
