My desire to compete is high today. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it is the prospect of taking the Golden Eagles to a playoff birth. They are 2 points out right now, but have been in a lot of close games. I have to do my part and get them the rest of the way, but it won’t be easy beyond any stretch of the imagination. Nothing ever is easy when it comes to hockey. I seem to have a knack for making things hard on myself at times. However, it won’t be self inflicted tonight.

I think a lot of my feelings right now have to do with the fact that I did so well skating out last night. It makes me really seriously think about skating out on 2 teams next session instead of one. I just don’t know what I am going to do yet. Can my body handle the punishment? I have a lot of other things I would like to do over the summer, but the session is only 10 weeks.

Oh well, I can think about it more this weekend.


I had my best game of the season in a losing 5-4 effort.  I notched 2 goals and an assist.  Unfortunately there were only 6 guys that showed up to play, so I was dead the second half of the game.  That brings my total up to 2 goals and 8 assists on the season and I only played 5 games.  I am just getting lucky bounces, but I am happy they are coming.
