First win of the new session

It wasn’t easy, but it was a win.  Something my Bulldogs team needed after starting 0-2.  Now, we have something to build on, and next week will be a tough game.  Right now, I am just happy with the win.  I hope my hard times are behind me.  The captain of my team said something after the game that I have to agree with.  Baby steps.  I told him I would be happy when I reached .500 again.  You have to take it one game at a time.  This hole I am in isn’t my fault entirely.  I have to have realistic expectations.  Looking at what I have ahead of me, taking it one game at a time is the way to go.

I have a few more games this week to play, including one fill in game tomorrow.  I now want to turn Village Bike Shop around and get them a good win tomorrow.  So many things I want….  🙂

The olympics are always fun to watch, but I can’t wait for the next season of TV to start up.  I guess I miss new episodes of CSI, The Shield, and so on.  I am almost finished watching The Shield Season 2 on DVD and it is awesome.  I can’t wait to watch Season 3 again.  Nip/Tuck and Rescue Me on FX are great shows and will keep me happy until the next season of TV starts up.

I am starting to notice some slight aches and pains in certain parts of my body.  My left ankle is a little sore for starters and my neck is stiff.  I am starting to think that playing as much as I am isn’t good for me in the long run.  As much as I want to succeed, win, and accomplish my goals….my body is trying to tell me something.  That still isn’t going to stop me though…well….short of my body breaking down.  I think about that every now and then.  Especially since I haven’t been out with an injury for longer than a few days.

Beck – The Golden Age
I heard this song in the movie trailer “Friday Night Lights” and I had to hear it again.  It has a nice relaxing beat and if you hear the lyrics, it really speaks volumes…

Put your hands on the wheel
Let the golden age begin
Let the window down
Feel the moonlight on your skin
Let the desert wind
Cool your aching head
Let the weight of the world
Drift away instead

These days I barely get by
I don’t even try

It’s a treacherous road
With a desolated view
There’s distant lights
But here they’re far and few
And the sun don’t shine
Even when its day
You gotta drive all night
Just to feel like you’re ok

These days I barely get by
I don’t even try
