Two Game Losing Streak

We lost our second game in a row last week, and now our place in the rankings is in jeopardy as the other teams are catching up. Somehow we started out gang-busters and won every game and then we lost two of our superstars, who in all fairness should have been playing in the upper leagues, and now things are more even. Just for the record, every team has it’s one or two superstars, ours were just a step above, and now we’ve lost them and yet the other teams have retained theirs. So while things have evened out, we sank a little bit lower than the others, in my opinion.

No sense in whining, though, because we still have a solid team, and we have to just go out there and play. It was a close game, we battled back, but they have one guy who can just skate around the rest of us, and though he doesn’t score every goal, the guy sure can control the puck. That makes all the difference.

In the end, it’s all about having fun... yeah, right. Just tell that to a group of guys pumped up on testosterone. I did manage to score a goal, however, and that’s always a thrill. Whatever the outcome of our season, I will say this, I love hockey, and am looking forward to the return of the ice, even if R thinks I’ve lost my marbles.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to piggyperson52 for the pic.
