this is the end of our poomsae training sessions before saturday’s bc championship. this is one of the largest killarney team we’ll have at a provincial competition. through the past several weeks of training, they’ve work really hard and improved a lot. i want to keep growing killarney’s competition team and create the comradery that we’ve never had before. hopefully this will lead to something good like taking some of them to bigger stages
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
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
got the free pass to wear hockey jersey to work to honour the victims of the humboldt bronco’s. to think of what these hockey families are going through, the loss of their children overnight. it hits a soft spot in me; playing hockey myself and knowing how much dedication is needed to be in a sport. of the many jerseys i have, my mom chose my canucks jersey so i opted to wear my fishsticks jersey to work
third last game of the season for fishsticks so filling the scoresheet is what i needed. i did exactly that tonight, taking the lead in my bet with a one goal two assist night. i was tired heading into the game having worked from nine to eight with a two hour gap in between teaching shift and promotion test, but not so tired after such good production. i’m sure i’ll feel the fatigue even more tomorrow trying to wake up for my 7:30am shift after a late game. i’m just happy that i feel like i’m rounding into form again as playoffs are ramping up.
looking at some old photos of when we last played queen’s tournament, and now we’re looking ahead to this year’s. frankly, i haven’t played since september and i can’t tell if i’m missing the sport or missing my friends. it’ll be a real test for that thumb of mine come next week when i step back into the court to field balls. i’m not sure how i feel but i’m sure that’s not relevant. honestly i don’t know how my physio hand specialist feels about that, but making my comeback is bound to happen
back to back season winning the spirit owl with gstrings. we uphold to being a highly spirited team in regular season and that’s no different at playoffs. an early exit wasn’t what we expected but we came out of our zone and my team knows it. the hardest part of being on the sideline while my team was on the brink of elimination is knowing i could step in to help but at the same time, couldn’t. if doctors gave me the nod, i would have in a heartbeat, risked everything to play in a splint and have it taped so all surrounding joints are immobilized. at some point i just realized people are right and i need to take it easy at the right moment. regardless, i still wanted to be there for my team
