day 2102 – matcha birthday

an action packed birthday that came with many surprises. since i was up early for my parents’ flight, i stopped to get the my free frappuccino birthday drink – most expensive drink of their menu. the afternoon was spent at gstrings playoffs. though questionable about the tiering, we played our hardest and fought until the very end. the girls surprised me by bringing me a post playoff  birthday cake. a dinner with the squirtle girls followed by our regular saturday night hockey. i’m very happy to have capped off the eventful day with two goals at civil war. i had an amazing birthday doing the activities i enjoy, with the some of the most lovable people

day 2051 – setup

i think i need to take it easy for a while to heal up all my injured body parts. i need find things to work on that doesn’t require punching on take offs or hard landings. at this rate it will be so difficult for my ankles and wrist to recover. i’m glad that both my winter hockey seasons are over with and have a couple weeks before my spring season sports start up. for the time being, it’s just dodgeball. this is also the time to really gear down and eat properly, something that’s been going really bad

day 2043 – dodgeball rolling

first week of the dodgeball season for me and not a very good start at all. i landed on the ball and immediately knew that shit just happened. now i have no good ankle to stand or walk on. the first thought that went through my head was how much pain i was in, but rather how i could get back cause i have flips to do and hockey games to play. to look at it postuvely, it’s still early in the dodgeball season so i’ll be able to get back

day 1740 – obyf lorraine’s back 

obyf lorraine’s back playoff took place today, but the outcome wasn’t what we were hoping for. we fought hard and took both series to five games, but today just wasn’t our day. we were in the middle of a stacked tier two where lots of upsets happened. the whole team was a bunch of cripples and as usual i lead the pack. nonetheless, the season good; this veteran team will likely stick around and make more runs

day 1730 – ramen fuel

chomping down ramen for fuel and fire after taekwondo do and before a night of dodgeball. there’s all the reason for my teammates to bet on me tonight, but i didn’t disappoint. i needed some dodgeball fix, not to mention i didn’t want to miss two weeks in a row. the showdown that i won today is quite the battle; one that i can stand tall with. i played relatively well tonight considering the circumstances i had to face. i just need to rectify that very little stands between me and sports. one thing to figure out how in the world i can better grip the ball; my grip will have to adapt to something else 

day 1691 – she-unit

showing up in plain white beaters and snapbacks for another year of kings and queens tournament. the tournament competition level was very high as always and although we didn’t make it far into the elimination rounds, it’s always good to be with the gang. good thing my chiropractor was on site to do some heavy taping on my shoulder so i could hold it down enough to play. i must say it was weird playing in white beaters and i don’t think i’ll consider that again

day 1654 – queen’s tourney 

looking at some old photos of when we last played queen’s tournament, and now we’re looking ahead to this year’s. frankly, i haven’t played since september and i can’t tell if i’m missing the sport or missing my friends. it’ll be a real test for that thumb of mine come next week when i step back into the court to field balls. i’m not sure how i feel but i’m sure that’s not relevant. honestly i don’t know how my physio hand specialist feels about that, but making my comeback is bound to happen
