I decided to play ball hockey again this year. Tonight was my first game of the season. It wasn’t so good. I took one shift on defense and made a brutal pass that resulted in a goal. The rest of the game on forward wasn’t too bad but I’m not the speedy offensive threat I once was. I’m closer to a third line grinder now. Ho-hum. We lost by three goals. It looks like it will be a long unremarkable season. Fortunately I’m doing it primarily for the exercise. There are a few new guys this year. I think I like the team better this year than last. I do have a nice bruise on my left knee, and both nails on my big toes are cracked. I think this will be my last season.
