day 1683 – hootie

back to back season winning the spirit owl with gstrings. we uphold to being a highly spirited team in regular season and that’s no different at playoffs. an early exit wasn’t what we expected but we came out of our zone and my team knows it. the hardest part of being on the sideline while my team was on the brink of elimination is knowing i could step in to help but at the same time couldn’t. if doctors gave me the nod, i would have in a heartbeat, played in a splint and found any way to have it taped so all surrounding joints are immobilized. at some point i just realized people are right and i need to take it easy at the right moment. regardless, i still wanted to be there for my team

day 1676 – bandaid belt

each playoff we come close but just short as runner ups, but that changed today. our balls your face finally prevailed with tier 2 bandaid belt after being eluded for three playoffs. this team is unbelievably unselfish and selfless which truly exemplifies the real meaning of what team means to me. many hard fought and tough competition in this tier, but we never unwavered. a well deserved victory for this iconic wednesday team. i’m exhausted and still slightly hungover, but i can’t be happier to be a part of this crew

day 1637 – lorraine replicas 

i came out to complete team lorraine as part of the dress up halloween wednesday. all i had to do with show up and my teammates brought the props to me. i know that i’ll always have my obyf teammates cheering me on, even when i’m the one on the sideline. their support for me and the team spirit they bring has been a difference maker during my coping time. i can’t wait to be back on the court with these neon guys, but i fear my chances of returning before this season ends is slim

day 1623 – obyf oddities 

acting obyfs cause more than half of the originals were not present for photoweek. showing up to the gym not being able to play is a bad feeling, but i’m taken there for my teammates. i don’t know how long i’ll be in a cast and in reality how long i’ll be out, but the bigger question is how long i can handle myself before the negativity begins to be harmful to my health and before i self destruct 

day 1500 – 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??

day 1459 – playoff sub

was originally going into tuesday playoffs to do exec duties, but ended up subbing in tier 3. we got far into the playoffs, but disappointed with the third place finish. nonetheless there’s a lot to take away from this playoffs. i was really pleased with my play as i was on my game. never have i made so many catches and three of them ended up to be clutch game winning catches. i hope to carry the momentum forward towards next week’s gstrings playoffs. my throat is really sore from reffing countless games

day 1441 – obyf return

i’ve been longing to pull this jersey over my head all season long. it felt like i never left wednesday nor obyf because i walked into so many familiar faces. my legs couldn’t support me since they were majorly cramping, but made my mark with two sick catches. always have a great time playing with this crew because this team leaves no one behind. i got home and immediately fell on my bed cause i could walk no more
