health, hockey

Another ball hockey game in Inglewood tonight. The team Iโ€™m on is the most penalized in the league. We have twice as many penalty minutes as the second most penalized team. I think a pattern is emerging. We get behind early, get frustrated, take penalties, get more frustrated and the score just balloons like it did tonight. I think we lost tonight by a touchdown. Iโ€™m a little concerned some of my teammates might get into a serious altercation. There are many guys with no composure who are full of piss and vinegar. If used properly that attitude is awesomeโ€ฆ in our case, unfortunately, it just results in penalties and powerplays for the other team. Granted I think the reffing tonight was brutal. There were tons of missed calls, including a high stick that drew blood. I have no idea how you can follow the ball and miss a guy dropping to the ground and hold his faceโ€ฆ Iโ€™m playing for fun and exercise. Iโ€™m beginning to think it isnโ€™t much fun at all. I played okay today, I drew a penalty (I think our only powerplay โ€“ which we scored on)โ€ฆ I added more bruises to my collection. Sighโ€ฆ

It is raining a ton. Iโ€™m hoping all the work on the week re-seeding the front lawn will be worth it.

Looking forward to the weekend alreadyโ€ฆ
