day 2359 – squirtle defense

mostly been a winger for squirtle all season, but getting my time at defense tonight. i much enjoy that our team can be in the same locker room as opposed to separating it be gender. we lost by a margin, but i still had fun. honestly my ankle is struggling when in that skate. the ganglion on the medial side is only getting worse and really bothers me especially in the second half of the game. i’m not sure what i need to do and how to address this issue. what will it take to continue playing this sport?

day 2338 – nacho christmas

i showed up fashionably late to nacho friends christmas party after my weightlifting session. it was a potluck dinner with a white elephant exchange. we also played playstation nhl and a couple board games. there’s was so much food leftover because everyone brought way too much to the potluck. i ended up taking home half the things i brought and then some. i don’t really know how i feel hanging out with some group – it’s no longer the same feeling

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 2226 – squirtle girls

friday night squirtle squad games are back in session. since i’m just part timing this season, i get to be a forward. my line was in the attacking zone for the most part but we lack some chemistry. we didn’t win today but it’s really good to see the squirtle faces again because we always have a good time in the change room. i even did a back flip inside after the game. i’m starting to not be too selective with my surfaces which i’m assuming is a good sign

day 2224 – nacho season opener

we had a rough start with some jersey cafluffle, but nacho friends season opener turned out to be really fun. because we’re a brand new team still trying figure so much out, it took us two periods to get on the scoreboard. i had a rough first period trying to get my legs underneath me and it didn’t help that i dove to block a puck and ended up feeling like my airway was obstructed. you’d think i learned my lesson, but i dove again in the third period to keep the puck on side which ended up to be the first assist of two. we lost 3-2 but it was a fun and tame game

day 2193 – squirtle announcement

it wasn’t a well kept secret, but the formal announcement was made at the dundas team dinner. squirtle assistant captain is tying the knot next summer and the date is set. so happy for her and looking forward to the stag parties we will be having. we had a round of shots to celebrate and i only had an order of salad roll because i wanted to hit up open gym for some flips

day 2164 – triad locker

i played pretty horrible game of civil war, but still had fun off the ice. all the fun horsing around in the locker room making jokes, discussing pick up draft, chucking tape balls and locking out people. the squirtle squad locker room is never a dull moment. i felt like i at least had my legs under me second game back, but playing centre and forechecking in an olympic-sized rink will do it
