Ball Hockey ended last night on a sour note. We got owned badly. They were simply better, faster, stronger and well organized. We are just a bunch of guys in comparison. There are two divisions in our league and we were great in ours but moving up to play the best in the other division and a great disparity was uncovered. I guess it wasn’t ironic then that there was really nothing said amongst my teammates before we left. No formal goodbye, great season… people just… left.
Ultimately though it was fun. It is a little frustrating to have a mind that wants to challenge and be aggressive and a body that says uh, no. Playing a physically demanding sport in my late thirties against mostly twenty year olds really makes me feel my age at times. We did win our division however and had a winning season. Most of the guys on my team had a good attitude. I would consider playing again if we were in the same division. I’d rather win in a crappy division than lose in better one. *smirk*
The quest for a car continues. I’m still uncertain what to do. We have added a few more cars to the mix as well to test drive. At some point, maybe even tonight, we’ll test drive the Mazda 3 2.0L and 2.5L and a Subaru Impreza (I believe the 2.5i). All of these cars rate well on Consumer Reports, so regardless which we settle on I think we’ll get a reliable car.
