Envision the win

“Envisioning the win?”

That is what Eric asked me before our game. My team, Dekleine Builders, played Village Bike in what turned out to be a up again/down again game that ended the only way it could, in a 10 penalty forfeit. We went up 4-0 and Dekleine looked well on the way to victory. Then, Village came back to tie it 4-4. With less than 30 seconds left in the period, we scored to make it 5-4, and then the wheels came off. Village Bike took a bunch of rash penalities in the 3rd period and then forfeited the game with less than 8 minutes left in the game. It was a tough win to be honest, and I am convinced that Village can pull an upset if they play hard in the playoffs. Dekleine will need to be on their toes.

The good thing is that I won both games I played. The bad thing is that my body didn’t let me forget it. I played two games, went home, showered, and went to sleep. My feet were sore and my back was a little stiff. To be honest, it reminded me of playoff Saturday. Except this time I only played 2 games and was done. Maybe my age is catching up with me slowly or something.
