day 2266 – nacho game day

this is the most skilled team we’ve versed so far this season. it was evident they were very seasoned as seen with their passing and chemistry. they had danglers, great passers and sharpshooters. we lost the game, but probably played one of our best team game and stayed with them the whole game. like any other wednesday, my legs were dead tired by the time i got home for another late dinner. i was happy to see all the chasiu baos waiting for me at home and devoured all of them after all that expenditure

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 2231 – nacho game

this team of white girls was not only huge, they were also fiesty. thankful no injuries resulted from any of the rough plays. i got an elbow to the head, shoved away in front of my own net and countless chops to the stick. i laid out a big hit, unfortunately it was to my own teammate when we were both rushing towards the puck at the blue line. we drew first blood but they tied it in the third. luckily it ended in a tie game even after a frantic overtime

day 2207 – espr playoff

team espr at the riverway field bright and early for the softball playoffs. it wasn’t the playoff result we wanted, but we had a really fun season, my fourth with this team. each person took many strides throughout and proved that we could contend with teams from the top of tier c. for me, it was switching from first base to hold down the fort at third base. the captains handed out team awards this year; i won the comeback player of the year after missing some games due to injuries. but what i least expected and was winning the female mvp of this season

day 2180 – three bag

left my jersey in the wash, but at least i found a shirt to wear. first time i’m fielding on the right side of the diamond at third base. i was ready to take some balls off the body because the ball really kicks up after a bouncing on gravel. ended the night with only two bruises, one on the bicep and one on the stomach. i haven’t figured out how to take high balls off the backhand but i did made some pretty good stops and threw out two runners at first base. the team played really well defensively considering we were playing opponents a tier above

day 2157 – civil appearance

after three weeks of 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. i understand why people could puke first day back after some time. 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 of 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
