With rollerhockey over with, I took a week vacation and went down to Dallas last week. In that time, I did very little to nothing when it came to photography or goaltending. I needed a chance to get away from things for a while. I did a lot of computer gaming. Rome: Total War was a new game I got hooked on. I did a little paintball, grilling, and otherwise did very little to nothing. It was a good break from the norm.
When I stepped off the plane in Michigan on Sunday, I was ready to start playing hockey again. My first practice is on Wednesday, and I have ice hockey on Thursday. It will be my first time playing in almost a week and a half and my body is fully healed and ready to play.
Last season was a disappointing one for me. In the last 2 sessions prior to the last one, I had won 3 trophies and many playoff bound teams. I got nothing this last time around, and that empty feeling revisited me. When I get that feeling, it just means I need to work harder.
I have Ferris State hockey to cover this weekend in a home and home game series with Michigan. On top of that, I may be covering some of the Griffins games in the next few weeks.
