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 1675 – mummified thumb 

the thumb sprain wasn’t going to stop me two straight days. it’s still troubling, but showing up to dodgeball with a mummified thumb is what i had to do. playing in tier 2 has its difficulties, understanding the rules and playing with honesty are two big ones. even for a team who won back to back sportmans award, playing against cheaters boiled our tempers and unraveled when certain players are blatantly cheating. it was not a fun night when we had to point out individuals who are repeated offenders

day 1534 – gstrings girls

appointed photographer and driven to dickens as photoweek for thursday continues. it forced me to see people and be sociable. it’s the only time i left the house cause i didn’t go into work yet again and it’s driving me up the wall. the swelling makes it uncomfortable to sleep at night, and can’t predict how the swelling will fluctuate throughout the day either. i feel useless that i can’t even take care of myself and don’t want to get out of bed to face the day

day 1533 – obyf oddities 

acting obyfs cause more than half of the originals were not present for photoweek. showing up to the gym not being able to play is a bad feeling, but i’m taken there for my teammates. i don’t know how long i’ll be in a cast and in reality how long i’ll be out, but the bigger question is how long i can handle myself before the negativity begins to be harmful to my health and before i self destruct

day 1303 – gstring 

just as we expected, we were bumped up to tier 2 after the retier. we’ll most likely stick in this tier for the remainder of the season so these are good matchups come playoffs. i was suppose to ease up for my legs’ sake but somehow ended up falling over a bench mid game. photoweek got more interesting when gstrings showed up with our lingerie. i was really bothered by some issues were brought to my attention at the end of the day and that kept my up at night 

day 1174 – dri-fit jerseys

love my new silky smooth sour catch kids dri-fit jerseys that came fresh off the press and just in time for photoweek. had no idea sizes of this brand runs so much bigger, it drapes over me like a dress. i had a solid night at both my games – throwing out many and catching was on point at dodgeball, making good plays, winning some battles and having some scoring chances at hockey. my legs are ever so tired. most importantly, i had a ton of fun playing the games plus fooling around

day 1162 – obwf

i kept my word to be out of both dodgeball and hockey action for a full week and now i am back. it’s season 22 photoweek; the team is slightly different this season, playing under the name obwf than our normal obyf. still being cautious and still testing out that back, but happy to report my back felt okay at the gym and at dodgeball. definitely a big step in the right direction, but always need a reminder to ease myself back in
