With game time about three hours earlier than usual I was able to have a little cheering section, that was a fun treat for sure.

I also played pretty well in the game, at left wing again. If I could shoot or if the sub goalie wasn’t more skilled than he probably should be for this league I may have even scored a goal or two. On a personal note it was pretty nice to probably be the team’s most dangerous offensive threat, but for the team it is pretty sad that I was the team’s most dangerous offensive threat.

We had a sub goalie ourselves who is only a slight step below the guy who was on the other end, so it’s not too shocking that it was a low scoring game. They scored one in the first, as I watched from the bench, one of their guys skated through basically our entire team and put it in.

They generally handled play but we did create a decent number of chances, many of which I was involved in. I managed to have one particularly good break away and was by myself on the goalie, but that was the first time that’s ever happened and I wasn’t really sure what to do. My shot was on net at least but not that hard of a save.

We were pushing late to try to tie it up when they got a break and put it in with a well placed shot, much better than I could’ve done. We kept pushing but couldn’t get anything in and it ended 0-2. I was -1, trailing and covering my man on the break that scored in the third.

It was a fun game and a much, much needed temporary distraction and awesome that the little guy seemed to be really into watching too. I’m not really holding my breath for this team to get a win or anything but at least we aren’t getting horribly blown out.

If you’re lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.

That music shuffle thing

I was tagged by inquisitivekitten so I’ll give it a go.

The prompt is:

You can tell alot about a person by the music they listen to, put your music on shuffle, don’t skip a song and list 10 then tag 10 people.

I apparently don’t listen to music like normal people do anymore because there is no possible way I could put my music on shuffle and have it randomly shuffle through everything I listen to. Personally I like that, not all music is good for all moods. The compromise I have done is to go to iHeart radio and pick the first song it selected for each of my various stations, ordered by most listened to.

  1. Wonderful Baby - Don McLean on the Don McLean station
  2. Easy - Barenaked Ladies on If I had $1,000,000 station
  3. Old Dominion - Eddie From Ohio on the Eddie From Ohio station
  4. Lost in This Moment - Big & Rich on the Big & Rich station
  5. You Don’t Mess Around with Jim - Jim Croce on the Jim Croce station
  6. Stay - Alison Krauss on Whiskey Lullaby station
  7. Little Plastic Castle - Ani DiFranco on As Is station
  8. Just The Way You Are - Billy Joel on the Billy Joel station
  9. Hole in The Sky - Robbie Schaefer on the Robbie Schaefer station
  10. Mother and Child Reunion - Paul Simon on the Paul Simon station

And a few more because there were only a handful of more stations I have

  • Louisiana 1927 - Randy Newman on You’ve Got a Friend in me Station
  • A Good Day to Run - Darryl Worley on Have You Forgotten station
  • Everything at Once - Lenka on The Show station
  • Try - P!nk on the P!nk station

I feel it’s a decent overall representation of what I listen to, although I do get most of my classic rock from a local radio station that’s not included and I’ve got some CDs that I listen to in the car that aren’t covered.

Now, for tagging, randomly selected among people who I follow and who also follow me (I skipped the people I was certain had already done it):

Remember when you said you’d bare your soul to me

And then I tried to be nice and a good friend and then you said you didn’t like me very much and we shouldn’t be friends at all.

I thought you’d lied about baring your soul to me, but then I realized you actually did just that.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure it makes you happy.

Now the car matches the dog.

For clarification, this is just the midpoint of the headlight replacement process. There was no accident and the cop just told me it was burned out without giving me a ticket.
 As for the smell, it’s no dog in that regard but the new car scent is long gone.

My kind of snow. On the trees but not much on the street.

Somehow snow in Minnesota doesn’t seem to do this as often and sadly there are no mountains around here. I miss mountains in the winter most of all.

I did one of my own, fits right in.

Now I is an artist?

Considering the guys on my team that were missing tonight I was not at all surprised when the game was so lopsided the goalies would’ve switched ends halfway through if it had been pickup.

Still, we created a surprisingly decent number of chances but lacked that last little bit all night long and only managed to put one in pretty late.

On the other end I knew I was going to have to play great and for the most part I did. They very easily could’ve had twice as many as they did, yet I also felt I had at least a half chance to stop three of their five. I was pretty happy that I made a good number of impressive saves, especially ones on plays where I normally might have had problems. The rest of the guys on my team all seemed really happy with me, so I guess that’s a good thing.

It was a fun game though it’s always a bit more fun to win, or at least be closer.

Oh, and I broke a buckle thing in my catcher as I was putting it on, that was super annoying.
