Last week N had a big LAX game up in the even bigger city of Burlington. This is unusual for LAX because it's much more low-key than hockey and the season is short and games are few and far in-between. I think last season he had 5 games, and this year he's had twice that, and the season is only half done. Either way, we made the long and brutal trek and then had to jet back home because he really wanted to play ultimate frisbee (UF). The season is just getting underway and we haven't had much of a chance to play.
To complicate the matter, it was a warm day, maybe even hot, so when we got to the field it was a bit of a scorcher. We arrived a little on the late side and the games were already in progress so we slipped right in and it was fun. Since it was late we didn't have time to get home and prepare drinks, so I picked up some Gatorade at Mike's and went for it. It was fun, not the usual intense crowd because the high schoolers were busy, but competitive and challenging. I'm glad we made it, and my legs were big-time sore the next day.
Hopefully we'll have more of the same in the coming weeks. Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Nancy Witthuhn for the pic.
