day 990 – rdl champ

image

i couldn’t have been more satisfied winning rdl tier 2 champs. every sour catch kid stepped up and played together down the stretch to make this happen. it was a hard earned championship where we had to fight through many tough series and come back from the loser’s bracket. it did come with a cost. i took two shots in the head in a single play – one being a ball that struck me in the collarbone area, the other being a follow through elbow in the back of my head. it was a scary moment because i don’t recall dropping down on the floor like a rock and being unresponsive for a good minute or two. regardless, i just wanted to get up and continue playing because the finals meant the world to me. i can deal with the consequences after it’s all said and done

day 432 – head hunters

dodgeball is a fun sport when played properly but a dangerous one if played incorrectly, that’s the case for tier 3 games. needless to say, it was a really rough night full of head shots, poor and nonexistent reffing, undisciplined players who blatantly cheat. i was very agitated throughout the night when my head was aimed at countless time before one finally connected. having just suffered a concussion three weeks ago and an upcoming competition, i would feel absolutely outrageous if i suffer another just because players fail to understand the rules and safety of the game. i was just trying to do my executive due diligence and explicitly told off several players, there was no improvement
