day 2252 – dodgeball action

the game of dodgeball is definitely more familiar in week two. i was saying that the first week was a total blur and my ball awareness and court vision wasn’t present. even though we played one short, we as a team had better ball control. at least i made one catch, that’s one more catch than last coupled by better throws. it’s a lot more fun when you stay alive and in the play longer than thirty seconds

day 2102 – matcha birthday

an action packed birthday that came with many surprises. since i was up early for my parents’ flight, i stopped to get the my free frappuccino birthday drink – most expensive drink of their menu. the afternoon was spent at gstrings playoffs. though questionable about the tiering, we played our hardest and fought until the very end. the girls surprised me by bringing me a post playoff  birthday cake. a dinner with the squirtle girls followed by our regular saturday night hockey. i’m very happy to have capped off the eventful day with two goals at civil war. i had an amazing birthday doing the activities i enjoy, with the some of the most lovable people

day 2058 – obyf reunion

finally meeting up with the our balls your face gang at eastside craft house to celebrate our belated spirit owl championship. there wasn’t much to choose from on the menu to stick with my keto diet so i went with the grilled chicken salad. we had plenty of food and lots of good laughs. it seems like majority of the team is intending to return next season and somehow talked me into returning as well. i love this team, but i’m just iffy about playing in another tier 1 playoffs again

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
