day 1852 – chicks champs

both jabba and chicks had a good playoff run in their respective tiers, but it’s safe to say chicks one up’d jabba to take home tier champs. it’s too bad i couldn’t be a part of the playoff run and in the end it is probably best for my injury. i’m very happy for the group of guys and everyone’s contributions. even though i couldn’t be there for the celebration, i also received a hardware. i won’t be playing with this group for fall, but i’m expecting to return next spring season

day 1803 – battle of chicks


the game of the year is a sunday matinee game. this season i’m on the jabba lineup instead of the chicks, though i will always see myself born and bred chicks. it was a super fun game between the controlled rivalry. this will be my third hockey game within twenty four hours and i may not have played if it wasn’t for the game of the year. my quads were absolutely fatigued when i woke up this morning after two game night. all i want to do is stay in my compression pants and not move

day 1620 – game ready


first game back in league action after a three month haul of rehabbing and a lot of waiting. it was a painful process that i never want to go through again but i’m glad it’s behind me now. i’ve long for this day to come and i’ll admit i had butterflies leading up to arriving at the rink. stepping on the ice for my first shift was a little strange and that comes with no surprise. the calibration process didn’t take long; i felt much better and adjusted even on my second shift. perhaps getting the adrenaline going and focusing on the game itself got my legs back under me. it feels so awesome to be officially back in game action and no signs of ill-effects coming from my hand. the happiness that’s running through my body well after the game will probably keep me up, but i have a good reason to smile and points to show for

day 1486 – five star 

just got confirmation that my fifth star has been added to the team hard hat. the amount of stars beside my name is a pretty good display of what i have accomplished thus far. i’m proud of the improvement and success i had in my first full year, but also not settling for anything less than what i can be. i’m predicted to continue to grow as a hockey player, but where that growth and progress takes place is not yet determined

day 1482 – playoff pump

was super pumped for my playoff game and ready to play hard as i took my freshly retaped stick and sharpened skates to the rink. i played the strongest game i possibly could and had the firepower from the very beginning with a goal and an assist to show for. i skated on the top line, earned myself powerplay time and also awarded player of the game. even though the loss tonight ended the chick’s season, there’s still tons to take away from this season. i have taken great strides this past season and it’s really an accomplishment when the guys in the locker room nominated me as most improved player. better yet, even guys i play against are acknowledging my the progress i’ve shown

day 1453 – hamberite brunching

we rarely get to meet up but it’s good that we still keep in touch through the years. didn’t get much sleep last night but up for a precious get together when one flies over to visit. this is such a cool camera lens add on, i want one too. had a great day at hockey where i had a lot of fun and gave me some positivity. i played a great all around chicks game scoring a goal, knocking down a guy and good forechecking. a very satisfying performance to make up for yesterday’s terrible performance

day 1410 – marathoner

it was a marathon day. robot league playoffs followed by a hockey triple header for blings, chicks and sticks, and civil war, all consecutive with an hour rest combined. chiro was not thrilled but in the end he let it be and allowed me go through with it. i had much fun playing in playing in tier 5 hockey for my first time. so glad that higher tier game was the first followed by middle tier and then low because i was out of gas by drop in. my si joint started to give me sharp pains again in the second series of playoffs. it seems like tylenol is part of my diet nowadays just so i can satisfy my basic movements. it would be a lot more fun when i can play pain free again. when will that be??
