day 1740 – obyf lorraine’s back 

obyf lorraine’s back playoff took place today, but the outcome wasn’t what we were hoping for. we fought hard and took both series to five games, but today just wasn’t our day. we were in the middle of a stacked tier two where lots of upsets happened. the whole team was a bunch of cripples and as usual i lead the pack. nonetheless, the season good; this veteran team will likely stick around and make more runs

day 1326 – queen’s tournament 

kings and queens is by far the best tournament i’ve ever been to. the level of play was really high as all eight teams were stacked in both brackets. the atmosphere and competitive level was like tier 1 playoffs, only much more spirited. i had a blast playing at this tournament; i’m really proud of the team’s play. i’m just happy to be on the court even if it took layers of gauze and tape to cushion the underside. it didn’t feel great inside my shoe and the mobility was limited, but i played well while still being cautious

 

day 975 – portland highways

driving south of the border on our way to portland hotel. started our drive so early just to beat out rush hour traffic. the border wait was minimal and the drive was smooth until we hit the affernoon traffic at downtown portland. when i see weaving stacked highways, i always think of portland and los angeles. getting to portland was half the battle, preparing myself for the big day tomorrow is the other half. sleeping earlier tonight would definitely do me good

day 968 – stacked balls

nothing better than starting good friday with a morning gym session. staying off my leg and tapering off gym volume this whole week. still wanting to train but need to train smarter; can’t say i’m not a gym junkie. kept it real light today with a short and sweet weight training workout. i have a feeling today is going to be a great day. lots of things to keep my mind preoccupied and take my head away from pre-competition anxiety

day 422 – draft day

it’s finally friday which means it’s the usual friday night taekwondo training. here’s today’s after class special, taiwanese kimchi fried rice paired with basketball fantasy draft. picked up pretty much all the players i had in mind and can’t wait to see how my team matches up through the league. wouldn’t say i drafted based on building a winning team, but drafted based on players i liked, hopefully that still gives me a good chance
