day 1683 – hootie

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, played in a splint and found any way to 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

day 1668 – wild wild west 

the atmosphere and theme at this pubnight was way better than the last. the food was at boston pizza was mediocre at most serving only pizza and fries, neither made me feel good after eating. the photobooth was a hit as it should be. although i was running around most of the night, i had a much better time running into and mingling with many. i got a chance to catch up with some old mates, talking and laughing at some of the old times. it’s great to see so many familiar faces at events like this

day 1624 – gstrings girls

appointed photographer and driven to dickens as photoweek for thursday continues. it forced me to see people and be sociable. it’s the only time i left the house cause i didn’t go into work yet again and it’s driving me up the wall. the swelling makes it uncomfortable to sleep at night, and can’t predict how the swelling will fluctuate throughout the day either. i feel useless that i can’t even take care of myself and don’t want to get out of bed to face the day

day 1623 – obyf oddities 

acting obyfs cause more than half of the originals were not present for photoweek. showing up to the gym not being able to play is a bad feeling, but i’m taken there for my teammates. i don’t know how long i’ll be in a cast and in reality how long i’ll be out, but the bigger question is how long i can handle myself before the negativity begins to be harmful to my health and before i self destruct 

day 1610 – growlers 

i had no handle on what damages could happen today, but i have three appointments lined up. honestly think i make terrible decisions but i really wanted to play dodgeball after sitting out for an extra ten days. it’s taped up to the point where almost no skin on my hand is visible, yet it still hurts to grip the ball, catch the ball, throw the ball. i came out not thrilled expecting more, but at least playing today didn’t make it much worse

day 1508 – dodgeballers unite


tournament of champions is not just any dodgeball tournament. of course there’s vdl, rdl, cdl, sdl, but it’s super cool to see teams from calgary, edmonton, toronto, victoria, seattle. through the round robin, my team was in the middle of the pack of the open division. we played well in the playoffs and went further than expected. we fell behind two games in two series, only to come back and win it. i made some good catches and snipes but my best came with the clutch kill to avoid a fifth game showdown and push the team into next round

day 1441 – obyf return

i’ve been longing to pull this jersey over my head all season long. it felt like i never left wednesday nor obyf because i walked into so many familiar faces. my legs couldn’t support me since they were majorly cramping, but made my mark with two sick catches. always have a great time playing with this crew because this team leaves no one behind. i got home and immediately fell on my bed cause i could walk no more
