day 1819 – basement rink

north shore winter club has one of the worst ice surface i’ve ever seen. it clearly never took hockey players into consideration when players have to lug giant hockey bags through sets of doors, up and down flights of stairs and across other change rooms. stomping down the stairs in full gear to get to the rink, only to see ice is actually a large pool of water. i left it all out there playing one of my stronger games to end the jdp regular season. i had a close call early on that looked like it crossed the goal line. had another opportunity on a two on one where i dove to get good wood on it. despite not scoring, i did many good things including passing, puck battles, forechecks, and just being in position

day 1143 – hockey storage

my hockey gear has migrated into it’s proper placed – organized in my garage corner. the storage was designed by yours personally. i put a lot of care and went through many iterations to use my space with maximum efficiency. i didn’t feel any pre-game jitters but definitely felt anxious to get my first action at game pace. i had a good first game and a lot of fun; skated hard, played my position and focused on the big picture. happy to say that my back wasn’t an issue aside from the times i got bodychecked

day 1105 – night ball

it was more of a rest day for me with the exception of a softball game on back to back nights. the whole team played a good game and got the win. i had a good game with base hits, runs batted in and some defensive plays. closing the regular season on a high note and ready for playoffs. but the high ended as i later found out mo’s grandma had an accidental fall. i hope she’s okay but still waiting for updates

day 684 – golden state’s game

forget about training today, i am sitting back to enjoy game 5 basketball finals. after a disappointing game 4, i still believe it is golden state’s series to win especially because i do not want lebron to win. no denying he’s a good player, but i don’t like his cockyness. it’s been a close series and an interesting one nonetheless. at least they didn’t disappoint today and hopefully they close it off on tuesday so i can witness it
