The stretch run

I got as much out of my game last night as I could have wished.  The champions from this league last season gave us a great game, and we only had 6 guys to start and finished the whole last period with only 5.  Still, I am very very impressed with the resiliency of our team.  We lost 4-3 after keeping it tied up until just under 2 minutes in the game.  Sure, I wish I had that goal back that they scored, but I couldn’t have been more proud of my team for competing so hard.

This week is going to be very hectic for me as I enter the stretch run with all my roller teams at Rivertown.  Malys has clinched a playoff spot, but they could finish anywhere from 1-4.  The division is just that tight.  A win ensures us a 1st or 2nd place finish.  That is what we will be working on today.  My Marketlab team will clinch 1st with a win or a tie.  I am confident we will win on Thursday night this week.  As for my non-playoff teams, both Shock and Awful have a game on Tuesday and Structural Standards has a game on Thursday.  I am very much looking foward to closing out their seasons with a victory in both games (I hope).

I also have a paper due for my MBA class that is pretty much done and that just needs to be tinkered with a little bit.  I have worked hard on this assignment and I am hopeful that I will get a good grade on it since it is 1/3 of my grade.

Friday will be my day of rest and preparation for the games that are coming on Saturday.  I will be ready to perform at the level I am used to performing at in playoffs.  High intensity and a winning performance.
