day 2155 – sechelting

as canada day long weekend approaches, i’m thinking back to the easter long weekend when the squirtle squad went to sechelt for a couple days. we didn’t do anything out of the ordinary, and we didn’t need to because being with each other was what it was all about. i hope we’ll plan another team outing very soon because i miss these faces after not having seen them since i left for my eurotrip. there’s so many activities i’m still itching to try

day 2142 – party in downtown

i was tired coming back from lengthy vacation and everything that happened at work. although i showed up fashionably late, it’s still important that i make an appearance at a birthday party. saw everyone from squirtle whom i haven’t seen for almost a month, had a drink and left charles bar extremely tired. i didn’t get home until 3am, i can’t imagine waking up for my appointment tomorrow morning

day 2053 – nerf shenanigans

the championship win was just an excuse to have a squirtle house party. it’s just another reason for the team to get together for a bonder. i skipped the dinner, but arrived just in time for the team shots. it was a fun night that had just about everything. we went from having nerf wars, to jamming with guitars, to playing story games, to some light sparring to some hockey goalie tutorials. the party went real late and i didn’t get home after past 4am. i haven’t had such a late night in a long time, but i’m glad i did

day 2048 – squirtle champs

huskies and squirtle go head to head again for the second time in three days. the grand final was neck and neck down to the wire until we sneaked out the win with an overtime goal. i played in the back end again and made some bold gambles which sacrifice my body with sprawling plays at the blue line and diving in the last minute of regulation. a few times i tried to jump into offense and even had a few shots on goal. i’m so happy to have been a part of the team building on the friendship. this season and our championship win was truly a team effort

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 2032 – post game hyack

post game team dinner after a game we lost with minutes left in the game. the team played sound defensively, and i felt i had a solid game as a defense. first time having a penalty called against me, an interference penalty when i laid a hip check on one of the wingers. i had a lot of fun playing this game, much of it had to do with the quality of hockey instead of fending ourselves from fighters. it’s must win games from here on or our season will be over

day 2026 – open practice

squirtle and fishsticks merge to hold an open practice so both teams can get ready for their respective game twos. also a good time to run through defensive drills to since i’m put on defense next friday. for some odd reason, my shin pad and skate tongue was causing a havoc for my left foot. lots of ice this weekend so i’m glad there’s no powerskating during this long weekend
