day 493 – playoff time

IMG_1654

a big day that my wednesday team has been playing hard for all season long. this season flew by so fast and now it’s time to shine at playoffs. we gave it our everything today, won many series but came up just short in the finals. came up ever so close to bandaid belt tier 2 champ, but i am so proud of my teammates and so proud to be a smd. important thing is our confidence and teamwork never wavered, we won and lost as a team. we have come so far from last season, it gets better from here

day 483 – purple team

image

it’s game day for smd, but i am listed as game time decision. the past 48 hours has been very unproductive while i have been trapped at home battling a nasty cold. the amount of sleep i got during this span out numbers the amount i get on a normal week. i guess it’s a way for my body to tell me it’s exhausted and well overworked. still feeling crappy from the cold, not sure if i am in condition to be useful on the court

day 471 – our winning ways

image

we definitely pulled away from the pack to dominate our tier with an impressive win loss record the past four weeks. working together with our strengths and improving on our weakness, coming together as a team has gotten us to the top of the board. watch out, we are coming back to tier 1 for the final stretch. keep the wins coming down to the playoff stretch

day 282 – season wrap up

image

we’re wrapping up a good season of dodgeball and celebrating our championship season. already talking about carrying the momentum into next season and making another run at the title in next tier up. it was a great season despite my ankle taking a lot of beating from the get go, definitely had a blast and learned a lot. the success we’ve had over the course of the few seasons playing together is tremendous and i want to keep it going

day 259 – no i in team

image

it’s getting to that point in the season when we need to get serious and gear up for playoffs. today’s main concern and focal point is all about teamwork but we will need to stick to the game plan and work harder since we are playing one player short. with that in mind, we still should have some fun

day 132 – professional photography

image

photos from dodgeball playoffs posted by a professional photographer and this particularly picture caught me eye. never knew what i looked like when playing in a serious match. i guess this is my in game body position and alert and focused game face. credits to peter so photography for all the sweet pictures

day 123 – what a day, glad that’s over

image

my marathon day included taekwondo, dodgeball playoffs, instructor seminar, and training twelve hours consecutive. just wasn’t my day, nothing really went my way since i never felt into my dodgeball games and my mind, arms and legs were super exhausted towards the end of the day to be any use for training. need to brush it aside and look forward

day 98 – late night snacking

image

with the team at soho on cambie stuffing my face with my favourite baked rice with spinach and sole and taro slush after a dodgeball night, i should have ordered something lighter because i am too full to fall asleep and too fat if i fall asleep. i will have to choose between getting fat or not sleeping

day 63 – dodgeball photoweek

image

team photo week with the entire our balls your face extended family of smd and smb looking sharp and sporting spanking new matching jerseys that i designed. always interesting nights when the two teams play head to head. never expected to be recruited by a team that was once my former team’s biggest rivals, its all about incentives!!

day 57 – unexpected reward

image

a thank you card along with gift card for my efforts in helping design the team logos and jersey layouts. was not expecting this at all, just doing what i enjoy doing is a good way to keep fine tuning my skills. i guess this is called good karma, what a kind and classy captain i have
