Saturday night we played the Nighthawks Blue (I think… they have a lot of teams that we play, from B to Red to Blue to … I’m not sure. I think last night was Blue). I played defense with Kristine again, which was fun. Of course, with a couple of penalties, I think Kristine, Nancy, Julia, and I all ended up playing at least 2 shifts with each of the others. We ended up winning 4-2. I think the Megan/Amy listening to of Johnny Cash and the Laura/Niki listening to of George Michael before the games may have triggered something, because….
We played Chaos tonight and we won again! Both Amy and I and Laura/Niki listened to our songs again on the way to the rink. This game was a little tighter, with us winning 1-0 on a goal by Amy. Last night’s game was a LOT tighter than this one tonight – it felt like we were running around in our defensive zone a lot more than last night. Fortunately, both nights Renee was hot and stopped all sorts of amazing shots.
After our game tonight, we went to the 99 for about 40 minutes to grab a little food before coming back to watch Black Ice play the Bulldogs. They had a really good game – apparently their best one of the year so far – and ended up with a victory. So nice to see them win! We went back to the 99 for another 40 minutes so a couple of them could grab food and then headed back to watch Steph and the Renegades play the Needham Huskies. It wasn’t pretty…. (I think it was a crossover game, with the Needham team on the higher end skill-wise of that crossover).
We MISSED seeing Chanda today, which makes me sad. (You hear that, Chanda? We’re both sad – and so is Steph, and Lynn and Tracey Lee both wanted to see you and say hi too…) We did get to see Amy’s sister and her family for little Cam’s 4th birthday, and we also got to see LJF who’s in town for the weekend. She and her cousin came out to our place after meeting us at the children’s museum – we only had about 30 minutes out here but LJF really wanted to see the dogs. Maggie gave her and her cousin (who she met when we lived down in Philly) the body wiggle and happy squeak. That’s the highest praise that dog gives anyone, and it made LJF smile a lot. Yay!
Okay, off to bed. I’m wiped and work comes early in the morning.Â Zzzzzz…..
