War story

I got my bell rung

I braved the sleet and snow to head out for my weekly game of hockey last night. With about 10 minutes to go, I cut across the middle at full speed and got caught with my head down. I Didn't seem him coming. I got filled in pretty good. I managed to drive my front teeth through my lip and they are a little looser than I would like.

I managed to get the swelling of my lip down by keeping a cold beer pressed against it for a few hours after the game. I'm not concerned about my face being banged up(some could argue it's an improvement), and I'm not even worried about the bruised ego.(It was #7, Ill remember) What I am concerned about is that I think I have suffered a serious brain injury. Every post I have read this morning makes sense. Even Macguru's. ;)

Yeah, It's not cheap, and they don't give away the icetime either. Well worth it though.

Some pics of my squad. [doncaster.on.ca]

I'm surprised at how cheaply we can practice.
Granted, the practices are Sunday nights at Thursday nights ... not your choicest times, but still.

I had a friend helping me pick out my gear and I kept saying, "Why do my gloves feel so loose? Are you sure these fit me right?"

So he paused, put the gloves on, and said, "Look, they're loose so you can do this."

Then he flicked both arms downward quickly and whizzed two bare-fisted punches past my face before I could blink.

"Oh. I get it now!" :)

Had my first practice tonight. I was pretty wobbly at first but started to get the hang of things after a few minutes.

We scrimmaged at the end of practice and I actually got off a good pass to a teammate. It was a total fluke, but I was pleased.

:) I'm hooked.
