day 1911 – dodgeball night

humpdays after work, as usual, consists of flipping and kicking, then rushing off to dodge some balls with our balls your face. the first weeks of the season has been focusing on the team chemistry since there’s new faces on the team. we’ll get through the kinks in the meat of the season and get it playoff ready. part of the fun of vdl isn’t so much about dodgeball balls, but seeing the familiar faces

day 1871 – eastsider

a flashback to the time when gstrings girls got together to celebrate our spirit owl win. one of the most fun dodgeball team i could ever be a part of. the chemistry we’ve developed on the court and the bond we’ve created off the court is something i wouldn’t give up. even though we’re taking a break, here’s hoping we will be reunited for another run for the money

day 1777 – winner winner

who would go to penta when i could be hanging out with these girls. presenting season 24 and 25 gstrings, back to back to back season winners of hootie the spirit owl. we ordered nothing by appetizers including nachos wings, yam fries, salad and brussel sprouts. a bill that was suppose to be over one hundred and twenty came out to eight all thanks to being sprit winners. pigging out on finger food after bootcamp sounds like an acceptable combo. even though gstrings won’t be in next season for various reasons, the return for season 27 is already in the talks

day 1747 – spirit owl

hootie the spirit owl is once again in the hands of gstrings. we are well on our way to defend our third eastside craft house gift card. this playoff, we have a good chance at the title and i had set my eyes on the tier five wrench. things didn’t unfold the way we wanted to; we started off on the wrong foot and got swept on our first series. we dug deep, rallied as a team and made it a lengthy playoff. we clawed back series after series and made it one game short of going through the back door finals. though i’m disappointed we didn’t come out as champs, we certainly fought like one. i’m proud of these ladies for not giving in when we easily could have called it quits. this officially closes the books for season twenty five, a comeback season for me

day 1740 – obyf lorraine’s backĀ 

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 1691 – she-unit

showing up in plain white beaters and snapbacks for another year of kings and queens tournament. the tournament competition level was very high as always and although we didn’t make it far into the elimination rounds, it’s always good to be with the gang. good thing my chiropractor was on site to do some heavy taping on my shoulder so i could hold it down enough to play. i must say it was weird playing in white beaters and i don’t think i’ll consider that again

day 1688 – cupcake surpriseĀ 

cupcake and bubble tea for a surprise pre-birthday celebration. a simple way to show appreciation for a long time teammate, and a friend above all. this team has stuck together for so many years, even i forget how many seasons we have been throwing and dodging together. there’s something special about this team that’s not letting me walk away from vdl entirely. in any case, this could be a reunion tour for some of us so cherish it while we can
