It really has turned into a twice-a-month affair, this livejournal business...hasnt it.
So in recap..
My odometer ticked over to 27 2 weekends back. Oh how time is fleeting.
Didnt do a great deal. I was supposed to play my first actual game of hockey, only we travelled all the way out to Moorebank (toll included) only to find the game was cancelled because some retard at the hockey ass fucked up.So we travelled home and did some drinking. Then we went and ate our fill of Mexican and then had an early night.
The next day we had planned on getting tattoos, but I changed my mind on what I want at the last second and cancelled the whole thing. I just dont want something lame.
Most days have been spent trying to get my body used to the stresses that hockey puts on me. Sure, Im a fit guy, but running on a treadmill, and lifting weights isnt enough to get your muscles ready for all the bending, turning, sprinting and so on.
That said, we played hockey last weekend. There are 2 teams in our 'club'. We are called the Bentstix...its a gay/lesbian club. So the 2 teams are 4.1 and 4.2 and are both in the mens comp.
Im in 4.2, and we played the first game...we lost but only 1-0. Apparently this team was really bad and were losing by 10 goals last year...so I guess thats not so bad.
4.1 didnt have enough players for thier game, so I played for them...and we drew 5 all. I scored a goal, kinda. I dont think it was really deserved cause I fucked up the shot, but the other team deflected it in...so I was a hero to equalize on the buzzer. 'Hero'.
My gym routine has changed to allow for hockey AND hockey training. But its a nice change.
Actually, I am SOO super happy to be playing hockey again. I forgot how I feel being in a team, having that comeradery you get from working as a team. Also the guys on the team - well most of them, are super nice. And it looks like I have made a few new friends. And it being a gay team makes it feel all the more like a team.
Im suprised there wasnt really any homophobic behaviour from the other teams...except for one old fella who got a bit worked up. But their team was embarrassed by his actions.
I guess no one will really give me any lip, Im a lot bigger in build to any of the guys. Well, alot of the guys are on the heavy side...but thats cause they DONT work out.
In fact, some bloke wasnt looking where he was going and ran head first into my left arm...I guess Im a lot more solid that i thought because I didnt budge, and he went off with a neck injury.
The gay games are being held in Copenhagen in a few months. I wish I could afford to go. If I had known about it all a few months ago, I could have saved for it...but I think its all a bit last minute to do it now. But 2 weeks of hockey in another country would be sooo ultimate.
Last night (Matt made the most amazing meatloaf) and I shaved my head, except for a little strip down the middle top. MENACE!
So, Easter weekend...lets see how this goes. Hopefully Ill make the most of it.
On this day last year, Matt and I went and looked at the place we now live in for the first time.
