Once again, another Sunday night meaning another loss, 7-1.
Its hard for a goalie to be positive after another beating like this. Two goals, I would take back. Otherwise, as a team, we really sucked. We were outskated, my D was out of position, and it seems I spent most of the night looking thru my opponents legs.
We have one game left this session. We are playing the Mayhem, the gay team. To be honest, I though it was common knowledge that the Mayhem was a gay team. But our captain said something about it in the locker room, and there seemed to be total surprise by most everyone. And some comments were made that I felt really bad about, to the point that I believe if they knew I was gay, I wouldn’t have been welcomed on the team. I guess it really shouldn’t surprise me.
One thing that has really hurt me this session is the lack of respect I get. I know, I’ve had bad games, we’re getting killed ( but the D in front of me..geez), but I have made some GREAT saves, but I do not get any recognition from the team, in general, when I make those saves. No whooping and hollering, no ” great save”. The best I get is a slap on the pads, from one guy.
Nothing has been said directly, by the captain, if he wants me back. Although I have heard him say that the team he has now is the team he wants next session. While a part of my really wants to skip next session due to the later games, there is a part of me that realizes that this one game a week, and the Drop in and stick n pucks, make for great workouts. And I would miss it. If he wants me back, I would have a team. Although I did have to pay 170.00 to play this session. If I decided to play, which I am inclined to do, staying with them would be much better than jumping to another team.
I haven’t spent muck time, or should I say enough time, on the bike. At least hockey has helped my stay in shape. Any I am maintaining my weight, which is good.
