day 912 – troublemakers

image

as i sit in idleness today, someone sent a picture to remind me that i am missing my annual exec retreat. a season end retreat south of the border which will undoubtedly involve massive amount of eating, drinking, passing out, waking up hungover and then repeat. i’m disappointed that i am missing out on this retreat for other commitments. but when i think about it again, i am doing my body a huge favour – forgoing things that can’t be undone to the liver, and then i get over it

day 864 – troublemakers

image

i liked our playoff bracket and our chances heading in. it wasn’t the results we were hoping for but nothing to hang our heads upon. some of us were battling a cold and some of us were gimped, and given the circumstances i’d say we tried our best. we had two good series, one hard fought series and another i’d like to take back. but even if we made it any further, i felt my elbow was done after the third series even though i had a kinesiologist tape me up. something is noticeably wrong with my hand but i don’t recall what exactly happened. keeping it loose during the pre game team huddle, i am still proud of how troublemakers handled the season finale today

day 853 – dodge life

image

today was a highly anticipated night of dodgeball – the all friend’s rivalry. it’s not everyday all three opponents are my friends, teammates, enemies and biggest rivals. there was no letdown and no shortage of fun tonight, it must be the best week of this season by far. playing thirty games a night is now a norm for me because not only do i play for my team, but i sub for other teams and even play against my own team. all this dodgeball craziness happened after a training session, which i recently found i play better when i am already all tired out. it was one of those nights that had fun written all over it and if it weren’t for the photos, i wouldn’t even realize how much fun i actually had

day 825 – stupid train

image

i swear i was stuck here for ten plus minutes waiting for this long ass train to cross. quite possibly one of the most boring ten minutes of my life watching it slowly make its way from right to left but there’s nothing i could do about it. at some point i got so impatient i put my car into park and even tempted to turn off my engine. at least i had a very active and fun filled¬†night with gym followed by a solid hour and a half of dodgeball. that’s two straight days being physically active but i am expecting to be mighty sore tomorrow

day 811 – teammates tattle tale

image

when things feel slightly improved i feel like i can be normal again but in reality i am far from it. shouldn’t be playing but here i am in full gear trying to give it a go¬†even though a dozen people didn’t approve of it and tried to drag me off the court. it’s a chance i wanted to take because i wanted to see what state my knee is in and what is it capable of, if anything. what can i say, i live on the edge with a life full of high risks

day 783 – rdl debut

image

dodgeball season is officially in as tonight marks my rdl debut both as a player and an exec. playing on a new team with a new organization in a new gym location, but not all that new because it’s the same old game of dodgeball which i have been so accustomed to. no these are not dodgeballs, they are mini dodgeballs also known as stressballs. although there’s no difference between it because i throw balls at people to relieve my stress anyways
