First playoff game was last night. We stepped up -- short shifts, skated really hard, everyone brought good attitude -- we won 5-0 against a team we had tied 1-1 last time we played. Much celebration ensued.
I was exhausted, having been up till 6am the night before, but still managed to have a great time. Also, I scored one goal -- if my humility were not entirely fake, I wouldn't have even mentioned it.

Hey did you hear about the leper hokey team? There was a face-off at center ice.

ANY way congrats Bryan!!. Looks like the picture was taken soon after the big 5-0 win with the score still showing on the scoreboard.

We did have fun. Si, a shift is a minute or so on the ice. I played center last night, so my two wingers and I (which makes a "line") would vault athletically over the boards onto the ice, where we would skate hard for about a minute then haul butt back to the bench so the next line could take our place. That would be a shift. Actually, last night we were short a guy (Scarface John sat out), so we played with only two centers -- me and Damon -- he and I just changed off whenever we were tired, which was usually about every minute.
I knew that would be interesting.
Blogball, you're right -- the photo was right after last night's game -- I wondered if anyone would notice the score. You may notice we outshot them 33 to 20, which is nice.
You may also notice the glaring lack of brown-skinned people on our team -- hockey is a pretty white sport...

"vault athletically over the boards" -- :-D
hope you don't trip with your toe pick or anything (oh wait, "toe pick" = figure skating? tho same-o, same-o as hockey, probably...)
