day 1864 – team platters

typical platter choice of the team after a squirtle squad game. there are quite a few alcoholics on the team so pitchers of beer are also staples, along with nachos. it is the official start of delta coed fall season and a win registered for the squirtle is a strong start to the season. we already have more wins than we did for all of delta spring season. i’m sticking to playing the ‘d’ for this team to learn more. of course there’s plays i wish i to redo, but i think i held up in the back end for the most part

day 1738 – birthday game

squirtle squad planned a birthday celly at boston pizza after playing a game of hockey. its really funny the team went above and beyond and used their creativity to customize my squirtle ice cream cake. this is a supportive bunch that’s helped me in my game of hockey, only wanting to make me get better while having fun. this is my second full game playing at defense and i think i’m already getting more comfortable than the first. i’ll watch the game footage when it becomes available and try to pick up things i can do differently to improve my backend game. i think i made the cut for a spot on defense

day 1720 – wings night

my first full game slotted at defense and it was nerve-wracking but lots of fun. i wasn’t confident with my backward skating and defensive positioning so i was worried i’d let the team down. i trusted that i had decent hockey iq so i was in position most of the time and lucky to have my d-partner when i wasn’t. i must admit it was quite fun to play on the back end; i wouldn’t mind playing there once in a while just to get a different perspective of the game and learn something new. the squad went crazy after the game and ordered platters of eighty wings and nachos

day 701 – oh canada

canada day was exactly opposite of how a statutory holiday should be like; not only am i at work but i even worked overtime. it was a long and exhausting day with no shortage of frustrations and surprises throughout. so much effort, time, preparation, sweat and anger has been put in order to make this inter school competition possible, not only on the front end but also on the back end behind the scenes. on the bright side, today i got to see all my students put forth their efforts , many of which made great improvements. but man, was i ever tired at the end of the day and not many ounces of energy left in me
