day 1586 – bandaid belt

each playoff we come close but just short as runner ups, but that changed today when our balls your face finally prevailed with the tier 2 bandaid belt after being eluded for three playoffs. this team is unbelievably unselfish and selfless which truly exemplifies the real meaning of what team means to me. many hard fought and tough competition in this tier, but we never unwavered. a well deserved victory for this iconic wednesday team. i’m exhausted and still slightly hungover, but i can’t be happier to be a part of this crew

day 1388 – obyf social

another casual but always entertaining obyf end of season party. play as a team on the court, every one for themselves when playing exploding kittens. before we know it, the eight of us have been together for eight seasons going on nine. it’s amazing how obyf has developed into an iconic wednesday team. playing with this bunch has been so rewarding because we’ve never had a bad season no matter where the standings put us. we’ll be taking another run for another title

day 1299 – execustar

got my taste of execustar fielding all sorts of questions from these two. it makes me think about the many ways i’ve contributed and the amount of people i’ve come across through playing and volunteering in this league. my poor butt took two hard falls at skating today so that makes three in as many days. i think it’s time for that overdue physio appointment

day 1215 – obwf playoff

image
we weren’t expecting to make it into tier 1 playoffs, but i guess we’ve proven ourselves enough this season to hang with the top teams. the outcome was the least of our worries; more importantly, we played as a team and gave them a run for their money. i have played with this team for seven seasons now and i have enjoyed every single one. i never want to leave this team but i might have to take a leave of absence from this team for season 23 as priorities for school come first

day 1190 – subbing machine

image

it was a busy night for me running around subbing everywhere. i played both time slots at dodgeball tonight on four different teams because three other teams needed girl subs so i was highly sought after. after quadruple shifting, i got my butt to 8 rinks for my hockey game. my legs are very heavy from all the activity and my hand is also a little banged up

day 1162 – obwf

image

i kept my word to be out of both dodgeball and hockey action for a full week and now i am back. it’s season 22 photoweek; the team is slightly different this season, playing under the name obwf than our normal obyf. still being cautious and still testing out that back, but happy to report my back felt okay at the gym and at dodgeball. definitely a big step in the right direction, but always need a reminder to ease myself back in

day 924 – season opener

image

another season of obyf begins tonight. sticking together as a team for sixth straight season; we throw together and grow together. getting my share of dodgeball in the three hours span and ended up subbing for one and a half teams. the extra playing time really allows me to work on my catching game and i can really see it’s coming along. my elbow issue is back again which is a little concerning being week one with so much dodgeball left to play. the bright spot is it forces me to focus more on catching

day 859 – exec christmas

image

vdl playoffs didn’t exactly go the way i wanted. i was very disappointed with one of the mistakes i made and really wished i could take back. bottom line is i didn’t come up with that clutch play that quite possible could have rewritten the series. in the end the team that made the clutch plays deserved the win a little more. it was a great season nonetheless and we will come back stronger next season to fight for the title that’s eluded us twice. post playoffs christmas party for the execs to close out season 20. tonight, i learned that i am a terrible blind drawer, but i am okay with it as long as i can still draw with my eyes open

day 848 – that leg kick

image

someone’s got evidence that i do indeed have a high leg kick follow through that’s victimized many of my teammates. i think it just comes naturally i don’t even notice it and the fact that i am nimble makes it scary as to how high it can get. this is the second last week of regular season play before we head into crunch time playoffs. i better get it together although i have made an abundance of catches lately which somewhat boosts my confidence by a smidgen. with all the seriousness gearing up for playoffs, it’s still important we still focus on having fun

day 799 – obyf groupie

image

season 19’s best dressed team looking sharp once again geared up in our full home uniform. today’s memo was to neon it up which some of us failed to do, but then again i also neglected to wear my neon yellow shoes. good to see the entire team present for another season of hurling balls at each other. obyf back for another season and keep working on things now and make it all count in the playoffs
