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 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 1228 – runner ups

no better way to settle the tier champ but having a rematch of last season’s finals. we started off the playoffs uncoordinated and making too many ill-advised moves; luckily we geared down and the teamwork started to show. i made some careless mistakes in the first half, but my catches started coming in the second half and made a pivotal catch. the team battled all the way to finals to force a game five and coming so close to defending our title. it was a great run, until next season

day 1181 – fifteen for fifteen

safe to say it was a dominant night when my team goes undefeated and gets all fifteen wins. the schedule eased up the past two weeks but we’ll go back to reality when we play some high tier one teams again. i wasn’t planning on playing tonight but i couldn’t resist because standing on court side watching is boring. two days before i leave town, i think i am handling my nerves a bit better than usual

day 1153 – trifecta

glad to report productivity was quite high today; it was a good balance of both work and exercise. a crazy way to finish the last six hours of my monday but definitely sets the tone for the week. i had everything all in one night – first was coaching, second came dodgeball and third was hockey. played an okay game with two good scoring chances and the team got a lucky overtime win. i survived off the snacks that i could fit in on my drives to and from events. i am so done for the night; i just want to pass out the minute i get home

day 1146 – season five

richmond dodgeball season five is officially underway. this is the closest rdl game we’ll ever have because it’s played at a vancouver school. rdl has been expanding every season since the first; this season we’re proud to have twenty eight registered teams. my first real dodgeball action after three months of healing my throwing shoulder and elbow, and the rust is so noticeable. sour catch kids as a team has a lot to work on to get our teamwork back in sync
