day 1924 – 98 degrees

been looking forward to attending the concert of my favourite boy band back in the 2000’s. the inside of vogue theatre had an old smell and uncomfortable seats. i saw a dozen familiar faces and funny enough the person who sat on my other side was also someone i knew from dodgeball. good thing we didn’t have to stand the entire time. i had a good time jamming away, but i just wished that they sang more from their own album and less of christmas songs

day 1911 – dodgeball night

humpdays after work, as usual, consists of flipping and kicking, then rushing off to dodge some balls with our balls your face. the first weeks of the season has been focusing on the team chemistry since there’s new faces on the team. we’ll get through the kinks in the meat of the season and get it playoff ready. part of the fun of vdl isn’t so much about dodgeball balls, but seeing the familiar faces

day 1800 – canucks showdown 

saw so many familiar faces watching the canucks prospects summer showdown. there’s a few highly touted prospects i’m really excited to see and hopefully one or two of them will make the big club next year. i enjoyed the format of the event cause i got to watch them in five on five, four on four, three or three and even shootout. the carve burger was okay, but there was no nutritional value. i guess going with the poke bowl would have given me some preferred veggies

day 1728 – penta social

went expecting to social with other penta players, but it wasn’t what i expected. there wasn’t much mingling involved, just eating, listening and drawing prizes. the social in this league is very different than the ones i’m used to going to; maybe the demographics is very different. the food was sub-par and disappointing, but at least we walked across the street to have a scoop of earnest. i’m surprised to see so many familiar faces within penta, many of which i met playing dodgeball

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 785 – dodging difficulties

note to self to never have my physio appointment scheduled the day before dodgeball nights. not only were my legs sore, my butt and core were also just as sore which took away all my dodging abilities. maybe too much compensating for my soreness led to pulling my back which nullified all the work done by physio yesterday and put me back at square one. despite all my body problems, i still had a great time seeing all the familiar faces again and meeting new ones of course. it definitely felt weird not being in league ops for the first time in seasons, i think i kind of miss it already

day 49 – new dodgeball season

first week of the season is upon us!! back for more dodgeball with new team but many familiar faces. i am curious to see how rusty my throwing and dodging skills are, how much chemistry i have with new teammates and how sore i will be after laying off for a full year. this gym seems a lot smaller than i remember, but it’s still the same game of dodgeball i  know
