day 2157 – civil appearance

after three weeks on vacation, and two weeks of bailing due to unforeseen circumstances, i’m making my appearance back at civil war. i was worried i wouldn’t remember how to gear up or how to skate. to be honest, my legs were gassed halfway through the ice time. living proof that there are some things you don’t forget once you learn, but there are things that will feel slow and be out of shape after a while. it’s a good feeling to be back on the ice, i’m sure my legs will have some affect tomorrow

day 2152 – softball sunset

i was afraid i forgot how to play softball after not having played for five consecutive weeks. my first test came early in the game when a pop up came in my direction in the bottom of the first inning. perhaps i was feeling anxious; i swung at the first pitch in my first at bat. after i got the first one out of the way, i settled down and took a few pitches until i saw one i liked. i connected in my next two at bats with two solid base hits and rbi

day 2102 – matcha birthday

an action packed birthday that came with many surprises. since i was up early for my parents’ flight, i stopped to get the my free frappuccino birthday drink – most expensive drink of their menu. the afternoon was spent at gstrings playoffs. though questionable about the tiering, we played our hardest and fought until the very end. the girls surprised me by bringing me a post playoff  birthday cake. a dinner with the squirtle girls followed by our regular saturday night hockey. i’m very happy to have capped off the eventful day with two goals at civil war. i had an amazing birthday doing the activities i enjoy, with the some of the most lovable people

day 2081 – triad jerseys

my linemates looking sharp in our new triad jersey and posing with them after game before the zamboni rushed us off the ice. i wasn’t so keen on having the light jerseys for civil war again, but they turned out nicer than the other team’s. my line didn’t score tonight and it’s my fault because i was robbed point blank. i really wasn’t having my night and had an earful after the game. i was told to play harder instead of playing down to my opponents’ level

day 2046 – squirtle final

i shouldn’t be playing with two messed up ankles, but here i am trying to put on my skates. we fought our way through back into the finals so there’s little stopping me from suiting up. we played a sound defensive game throughout before breaking the game open in the second half of the game and won 4-1. we’re taking huskies to the grand finals so we’ll get to duke it out on again on sunday

day 2025 – team squirtle

finally a group picture of the squirtle squad comes during game one of the playoffs. it was a close game one but good thing we took the win in the end. we were neck and neck for most of the game until we busted out with two unanswered goals. i detest this team because they have the dirtiest players who plays with no remorse. the guy who i almost got into a fight with last game came at me again with an outstretched arm and wanted to land an open ice hit when the puck is nowhere near. just glad we got the win against an unworthy team. the commitment was real when half the team including myself transported to play game one of fishsticks still wearing most of our gear. that’s enough activities in one day; i’m exhausted and ready to pass out

day 2019 – ladies locker room

there must have been a memo somewhere out there to wear purple today. i don’t think i’ve ever been so agitated and come so close to getting into a hockey fight. i was on the boards in a puck battle when he pushed me and i shoved him back. i guess he least expected me to stand up to a big guy like him so he tried to establish his dominance by throwing a jab at my head that i dodged. he then tried to put his arm around my neck thinking he could throw me down. i took exception of it and stood in front of him and stared him down as the refs ushered him into the penalty box
