day 1351 – 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

day 1347 – blatt

who knew sour catch would be competing for blatt this playoff. it was a tough tier to be in and no surprise our playoff didn’t last long but maybe that’s not a bad thing because my shoulder is beyond wrecked when it doesn’t fully rotate. i do believe the team played the best we have all season; we laid it all out on the court and didn’t give an easy pass to either riceballz or pork. already looking forward to next season but first need to heal

day 1326 – queen’s tournament 

kings and queens is by far the best tournament i’ve ever been to. the level of play was really high as all eight teams were stacked in both brackets. the atmosphere and competitive level was like tier 1 playoffs, only much more spirited. i had a blast playing at this tournament; i’m really proud of the team’s play. i’m just happy to be on the court even if it took layers of gauze and tape to cushion the underside. it didn’t feel great inside my shoe and the mobility was limited, but i played well while still being cautious

 

day 1299 – execustar

got my taste of execustar fielding all sorts of questions from these two. it makes me think about the many ways i’ve contributed and the amount of people i’ve come across through playing and volunteering in this league. my poor butt took two hard falls at skating today so that makes three in as many days. i think it’s time for that overdue physio appointment

day 1221 – ex throbocop

image

it’s unfortunate i can’t physically be there to play or support my fellow throbocop, but i’m sure thinking about them and wish them the best of luck in playoffs today. thinking back of how we dominated on playoff day to grab that a tier champ in out first season. it’s exciting to see much improvement in everyone’s game. i am still aiming for that bandaid belt that obyf has come ever so close to a couple times

day 999 – pineapple league

image

i am excited to get my new jersey even though i wasn’t able to play in the first week of pineapple league. my team represents the great grapefruit, characterized by our cool looking pink jerseys. the first ever summer hat league where all my teammates are randomly drawn. i’m playing with six others that i’ve never teamed with; it’ll be an interesting experience. it’ll be a short but fun season with many twists and slight changes to dodgeball norms

day 936 – sour catch kids

image

here’s my monday team rocking those colourful shirts for photo week. a team selfie photo while we were waiting for the official photographer to get her camera ready. i quite possibly made the best catch of my entire dodgeball career with a shoe top grab. it’s been a very active day for me having done so much exercises, even my fitbit said so. i shot up all categories which explains why i am outrageously tired, sore or probably a combination of both

day 924 – season opener

image

another season of obyf begins tonight. sticking together as a team for sixth straight season; we throw together and grow together. getting my share of dodgeball in the three hours span and ended up subbing for one and a half teams. the extra playing time really allows me to work on my catching game and i can really see it’s coming along. my elbow issue is back again which is a little concerning being week one with so much dodgeball left to play. the bright spot is it forces me to focus more on catching

day 908 – post week one

image

week one of rdl season four in the books and it was a successful one. the gang having post dodgeball late night snack – their late night snack. playing together as a team for the first time, we had a very good night racking up nine wins against some tough opponents. i think this team has great potential and will only improve as the season goes on. for someone who went through a tough high rep training prior to dodgeball and exhausted to the point where putting gear on was quite difficult, i played ridiculously well. but why am i surprised as history shows i play better tired

day 864 – troublemakers

image

i liked our playoff bracket and our chances heading in. it wasn’t the results we were hoping for but nothing to hang our heads upon. some of us were battling a cold and some of us were gimped, and given the circumstances i’d say we tried our best. we had two good series, one hard fought series and another i’d like to take back. but even if we made it any further, i felt my elbow was done after the third series even though i had a kinesiologist tape me up. something is noticeably wrong with my hand but i don’t recall what exactly happened. keeping it loose during the pre game team huddle, i am still proud of how troublemakers handled the season finale today
