Hopefully, the jitters I faced last week are behind me. I know I feel better, and I think not having played last night will be a good thing.
Tonight, we face the Blue Dragoons. Last week, they defeated a traditional middle to bottom team by a score of 2-1. Any game at this point will be a challenge for us. We do have some guys who can shoot, so it will be time for the D, and me, to step up.
I wasn’t going to by any more equipment, but my old Brian’s pads were really beat. They needed a lot of repair, and the stench coming from them….whew!
I stopped a Play it Again sports and found a set of gently user Rebook GP Pads. No where near top of the line, but for my level, they will work. I did go down to a 32″, from 34″. I had often thought I had been playing in too large of pads. I did put them on a while ago top to see how they feel and if I needed to make any adjustments. My first impression is good. I think I can do better in closing the 5 hole, and I may actually have a butterfly.
