day 1858 – wally gets married

partying it up at a special wedding with friends from both dodgeball family and softball family. it’s an occasion i would temporarily put my dietary needs on hold since one of my long time teammate, friend and brother is getting married. the dinner reception had wonderful speeches and capped off perfectly with gelato served. i have to rethink my eating tactic prior to consuming alcohol; what i had eaten tonight left my unprepared. i drank a few more than i intended to, but it i guess i should have expected it with an open bar.at least i drank responsibly since i was walking distance from home

day 1740 – obyf lorraine’s back 

obyf lorraine’s back playoff took place today, but the outcome wasn’t what we were hoping for. we fought hard and took both series to five games, but today just wasn’t our day. we were in the middle of a stacked tier two where lots of upsets happened. the whole team was a bunch of cripples and as usual i lead the pack. nonetheless, the season good; this veteran team will likely stick around and make more runs

day 1688 – cupcake surprise 

cupcake and bubble tea for a surprise pre-birthday celebration. a simple way to show appreciation for a long time teammate, and a friend above all. this team has stuck together for so many years, even i forget how many seasons we have been throwing and dodging together. there’s something special about this team that’s not letting me walk away from vdl entirely. in any case, this could be a reunion tour for some of us so cherish it while we can

day 1604 – obyf party

potluck bonder for yet another obyf season, eight to be exact. bring your own drinks parties really get out of hand when everyone brings their stash and ends up with a ridiculous amount on the table. enjoyed my night chilling with this gang over food and drinks. even when out of dodgeball setting, dodgeball ends up to be a part our party; what a bunch of dodgeball addicts. we laid out how our season went and savored the winning moment

day 1586 – bandaid belt

each playoff we come close but just short as runner ups, but that changed today when our balls your face finally prevailed with the tier 2 bandaid belt after being eluded for three playoffs. this team is unbelievably unselfish and selfless which truly exemplifies the real meaning of what team means to me. many hard fought and tough competition in this tier, but we never unwavered. a well deserved victory for this iconic wednesday team. i’m exhausted and still slightly hungover, but i can’t be happier to be a part of this crew

day 1547 – lorraine replicas 

i came out to complete team lorraine as part of the dress up halloween wednesday. all i had to do with show up and my teammates brought the props to me. i know that i’ll always have my obyf teammates cheering me on, even when i’m the one on the sideline. their support for me and the team spirit they bring has been a difference maker during my coping time. i can’t wait to be back on the court with these neon guys, but i fear my chances of returning before this season ends is slim
