day 1734 – triceratops

so much driving back and forth from vancouver and richmond just because i’m part timing in dinotown. after a play where the ball grazed my thumb the wrong way, it started not feeling right. knowing it’ll never be back to normal, i thought it was at least in a borderline functional state. just as i thought my thumb was back as good as it’ll ever be, i start getting doubts. i had to lay off immediately and make sure it doesn’t get worse. if it doesn’t get better, i’ll have to wear my splint again just to play 

day 1510 – hand pain

it’s back to square one. after my making my first catch of the dodgeball night, my hand was in excruciating pain and could no longer grip a ball properly. being me, i thought that if i taped it would allow me to play; if i taped more i could continue; and if i tape enough to make it immobile, i could finish the night. i finished the night, but once the last game was over, i realized i no longer have a functional hand. it does open nor close, it doesn’t hold a fork, nor a steering wheel; it basically doesn’t function for my basic needs

day 1363 – robot war 

nine dodgeless days is over as robot war strikes. a simple game of dodgeball with player stat tracking to spark trade talks. the few twists to the rules but i’m ready to contribute to team doraemon. day three of liquid diet consisted of three slices of toasts and one banana; i’m surprised i still had energy in the tank to play. these restrictions suck and i would experience spurts of dizziness throughout the day

day 1347 – blatt

who knew sour catch would be competing for blatt this playoff. it was a tough tier to be in and no surprise our playoff didn’t last long but maybe that’s not a bad thing because my shoulder is beyond wrecked when it doesn’t fully rotate. i do believe the team played the best we have all season; we laid it all out on the court and didn’t give an easy pass to either riceballz or pork. already looking forward to next season but first need to heal

day 1335 – phoebe and friends

maximizing my time at rdl doubling up in tier two for both time slots. phoebe and friends is a fun them to sub for. sour catch getting some time in tier two so we can focus more on our play without worrying about getting pelted by fastballs. i’ve been playing with a little out of focus the past few weeks; got to step it up as playoffs is closing in. gyming and dodging with a stiff neck and shoulders is not desirable 

day 1321 – exec lineup

execs delivering announcements before commencing with week seven play. even though it’s spring break for schools, dodgeball doesn’t stop. i cannot imagine how fast the season has gone by and pubnight is this weekend. it was fun tonight running between the courts of tier 1 and tier 3. i kept my warmup sweater on and refused to take off no matter how hot and sweaty to avoid any explanations

day 1234 – hat worthy

adding another star to my name after tonight’s game. had good ice time and fought hard for that hat. i’ll be first to admit i wasn’t fully ready for tonight’s game after eating at gyu kaku with fellow rdl execs, but still got it done. this meeting is more of a celebratory dinner to appreciate everyone’s effort, carrying their own weight and make it another smooth season. it got wild in a hurry when we realized we ordered too much drinks and had to chug the rest down. i was on my best behaviour for the better part considering the amount of food presented in front of me, but even then the amount put into my stomach makes me feel way too fat
