After a great break from ice hockey and roller hockey, I got back into the swing of things. The two week break from roller hockey was always a great time to rest and recouperate. Ironically, this break mostly coincided with ice hockey as well which was really nice to boot. I really wish I could say that I didn’t think of that finals loss in ice hockey, but I did. I stewed about it a bit more than I would like to admit. Still, that break allowed me to put it into perspective and get myself re-energized.
My roller team won their first two games, and one of them against a team we have never beat. That really did help our confidence going into the second week which was a major key. We experienced a slight letdown in the second game but we still found a way to come through with a victory. A 2-0 start is definitely the start we were looking for.
As for ice hockey, we start on Wednesday and it may very well be the best roster that we have ever played with outside the charity events I have put on. The big question is, will we gel and play well as a team. The best roster doesn’t win championships. Chemistry win championships. It is championship or bust this summer in my eyes.
