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 the 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

day 1997 – planet ice delta

playing forward at delta for the first time this season and it paid off. i finally scored my first goal this season and it was quite the beauty. swooped into the offensive zone and one-timed a big rebound off the end boards. it was a big win for the team that put us at the top of our division; definitely worth celebrating upstairs at boomers bar and grill. i did what i had to do so i’m content going back on defense for the remainder of the season

day 1992 – hockey split

splitting time between powerskating in the morning and squirtle game in the evening. i probably should have been wise enough to take it off to rest up my sprained ankle and wrist; but who am i kidding? for as long as i can tape it up, my sports must go on. i find powerskating helpful and hope it translates in my game. i didn’t have the best of games because the opposing players coming down my wing were pretty quick and skilled

day 1968 – fishy game

i have missed quite a few games this season due to vacation and illness, but here i am playing in the final fishsticks game of 2018. this is one big team full of dirty players and yappers who pounced on our short bench with three quick goals. despite being the underdog, we slowly chipped away and eventually ended the game with a tie. i tallied our first goal and it could have been easily a hat trick. i was robbed on two point blank opportunities. i was gased by the end because of our short bench, but it definitely felt good contributing on the score sheet once again

day 1915 – hockey is back

it’s good to be back at the rink after missing the past few hockey games due to overlapping schedule. i was afraid i’d be slow coming out of the gate but i held up and even registered an assist. the scoresheet isn’t really an accurate representation of the high scoring game. it was a fun game but man i’m tired from invigilating a blackbelt test that went wrong in far too many ways. being put in the spot to do something i haven’t practiced in three years isn’t exactly cool. good thing i managed to do it and come out unscathed
