day 1717 – jersey for humboldt 

got the free pass to wear hockey jersey to work to honour the victims of the humboldt bronco’s. to think of what these hockey families are going through, the loss of their children overnight. it hits a soft spot in me; playing hockey myself and knowing how much dedication is needed to be in a sport. of the many jerseys i have, my mom chose my canucks jersey so i opted to wear my fishsticks jersey to work

day 1647 – fishy game

it’s friday anf i have hockey; this combination usually means it’s a good day. i fit a workout in  between as part of my warmup to get me psyched up for this game. i was feeling strong going through my warmup and light power lifts. fishsticks as a whole played a well rounded game and dominated the ice in every way. i for one had a solid game with many nice passes, and a breakaway that could have ended the game. though we had many missed opportunities and didn’t come away with the win, but i have an assist to show for. feeling the frustration of being blindsided with no call, i played with more aggression and took someone down to send a message. quite satisfied with my game performance and know that i’ve just tied up my bet 

day 1599 – open practice


was in for a treat to an exclusive canucks event of open practice plus meet and greet. boeser’s line up was by far the longest but so thrilled to have taken a photo with this good looking fellow and even gotten his autograph. it may have been another casual practice for them, but i watched with excitement and my nerdy side came out. i left happy having gotten a few more photos and autographs, including arguably the best goalie in canucks history

day 1571 – home and away 

another one of my design creation turned into something rad for the entire team to work. took my manager’s advice to opt out of the reversible and get two separate jerseys. i can’t wait to be back on the ice to debut this jersey, but first i must wait to be cleared by my surgeon and physio. six weeks in a splint was what i was told by my first doctor. one doctor, one hand specialist, two surgeons, one physio, and one hand therapist later, i’m still unsure what my status is

day 1378 – recoil

found my blue jersey just in time for spring season opener tonight. it was a fun game, getting our first win of the season helps. my ribcage feels so aggravated i had to pop more tylenols. it’s not a good sign when even lying down hurts. the constant recoil is a concern because it’s never been so unstable before. it’s calling for another visit to the chiropractor office this week. i’m starting to think the whiplash from the car accident jolted something out of place without me knowing it. i’m starting go feel like

day 1356 – robot league

the hype of robot war league just got higher after i got my baymax shirt specially delivered. what’s also hyping is the countdown to my sunny vacation is within twenty four hours away. worked really hard in the past months and definitely earned this time off, both away from work and away from home. i hope it bodes everything that i have been looking forward to and i can’t wait to enjoy my vacation hitting up the sunny state that hosts disneyworld

day 1340 – civil war

i’m stoked to hit the ice again as the war between friends, the civil war, kicks off tonight. the feeling of a pro when i arrive at the rink and my number 10 jersey is already hanging in the rabbits locker room. the self printed jersey is a nice touch. i’m told that i’m starting on the noob line but i’m in the running for that spot in the regular line. it goes to show that what i work for doesn’t go unnoticed. just keep working at it and improving my game every time; if that opportunity comes, i’m taking it
