day 2293 – nucks verse preds

the canucks have been doing surprisingly well out of the gate this season. i’ve been keeping up with the canucks games on television as much as i can. my linden jersey was ready to catch it live at rogers arena for this first time this season. the young players and new prospects have been doing really well. so glad to witness pettersen score two goals on his birthday. i’m still debating if i should buy a 50th anniversary jersey with pettersen stitched

day 2252 – dodgeball action

the game of dodgeball is definitely more familiar in week two. i was saying that the first week was a total blur and my ball awareness and court vision wasn’t present. even though we played one short, we as a team had better ball control. at least i made one catch, that’s one more catch than last coupled by better throws. it’s a lot more fun when you stay alive and in the play longer than thirty seconds

day 2058 – obyf reunion

finally meeting up with the our balls your face gang at eastside craft house to celebrate our belated spirit owl championship. there wasn’t much to choose from on the menu to stick with my keto diet so i went with the grilled chicken salad. we had plenty of food and lots of good laughs. it seems like majority of the team is intending to return next season and somehow talked me into returning as well. i love this team, but i’m just iffy about playing in another tier 1 playoffs again

day 2032 – post game hyack

post game team dinner after a game we lost with minutes left in the game. the team played sound defensively, and i felt i had a solid game as a defense. first time having a penalty called against me, an interference penalty when i laid a hip check on one of the wingers. i had a lot of fun playing this game, much of it had to do with the quality of hockey instead of fending ourselves from fighters. it’s must win games from here on or our season will be over

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 1558 – polar


the start of november has seen some cold days, so cold it’s already reached below zero temperature. the sunshine makes me want to walk outside, but the cold went deep through the skin and into the bone within a minute. i haven’t put away my summer clothes yet and already miss the summer days. daylight savings ending makes it darker and colder earlier. deep inside my heart feels as cold as the air outside; i only wish there’s a fix to what’s wounded inside

day 1532 – nucks and sensĀ 

pushing through the crowded rogers arena during intermission taking photos with my all time favourite canuck. the canucks off to a good start getting points in the both games played. specifically chose to attend this all canadian matchup against senators because of alex burrows. it was a nice gesture to play a special burrows tribute video during a stoppage. although the canucks didn’t take the win, it was a good game getting our value of overtime and shootout
