Marketlab had a nice start to their season with a 7-5 win. A game where we would nab the early 3-1 lead in the first, but give up 4 goals in the second period to go down by 2, and then rebound with a good 3rd period and win by 2. It was a see-saw battle, but one we came out on top with. Its early in the season, but a good start like this really helps matters.
I played average again, but I was also hobbled by a lower back strain that was really just killing me at times. My team played very solid in front of me really limiting their quality scoring chances. I was probably playing about 75% of my full capacity though.
After that game, I went home, ate, and then crashed early. When I woke up Friday morning, I had zero back pain. I have to wonder if it was some kind of pinched nerve or something instead of a strain. Either way, it was good to feel 100% better for my vacation.
My wife and I celebrated our 10th anniversary today in Chicago. Tomorrow we start hitting all the museums and the aquarium, and then get back here for a nice nap and then hitting the Jimmy Buffett concert in the evening. I should get some sleep soon in preparation for what lies ahead.
