Laying it all out there

I have wanted to type in my blog for a little while now and I just didn’t know where to start.  Therefore, I am just going to throw a bunch of different things out there and just see what happens.

First, I played like crap tonight in hockey.  Sure, there were some shots I had no business stopping.  A majority of the goals that were scored on me though were good shots in the slot or ones that went top corner on me.  I was disappointed with my effort and the effort of my teammates.  I knew it would be a tough road to hoe for the Stick Heads this season, and I guess I was right.  My goal was to be .500 in the season, and even that is going to be a challenge.  I have a lot of work to do.

Second, I have put Warhammer Online aside for a little bit to play F.E.A.R. 2 and its a great change of pace.  I hope to get back into Warhammer in the next few days, but FEAR 2 is simply awesome.  Not the greatest game I have ever played, and I think I enjoyed Dead Space more in terms of the storyline and scary factor.  Still, a very good game that is worth the money to pick up.

Third, Malys is going to have to pick up their gameplay.  Just seems like the last few weeks have not been clicking for us as a team.  Even though we are 1-1 on the season, I think that we are playing like a bottom half team.  Lets see how things play out though before I pass judgement.  Maybe we can turn things around and we are going to have to to become one of the better teams in the division.

Tonight after my game I learned the importance of why I am playing.  It isn’t to win, even though winning is important to me.  Its the friendships you make while playing.  Today, even though I was disappointed, I was a little upset with my play and it showed afterwards.  I was distant from my own teammates and just wanted to get dressed and leave.  I did chat with a few of the players on my way out and my teammates in the locker room, but I should have been more open.  Its the friendships you make around the rink that make playing the game so much fun.  I should be embracing that.  Especially as I get older and my playing days dwindle.

Heineken is still one of the best beers in my mind.  I prefer it over just about every beer I could ever have.  I should make a trip to the Hopcat eventually to expand my knowledge of beer though.

I am in the process of thinking about my MBA class schedule for the rest of the year.  I already know I am taking 3-4 classes a year.  That 4th class is still up in the air though.  If I take that 4th class, I would be taking both Fall semester sessions and then one in the Winter.  That would mean I am taking 21 straight weeks of courses and I don’t know if I want to subject myself to that.  Its either that or graduate a year later.  I am still weighing my options here, but one thing is for certain.  I will earn my MBA.

I am looking for ways to improve my WordPress blog a bit and I got to thinking about Video Blogging.  Maybe doing some videos of my goaltending and posting some clips and such.  I always wanted to do that and if I am going to do it regarding hockey, why not do it now while I am still playing.  I am still considering this as an option.

I am going to crash here soon.  I have been getting about 7 hours a night lately and I am just feeling that is barely enough.
