      50% from the sport, 50% for having an excuse to wear a speedo.

      Another fine summary.  However I feel compelled to add a little commentary from the opposing team.  Yes, Ben's nether regions were tingling on occasion, but I believe the primary cause was the considerable hits he was taking from the opposing team.  Yes Rich, your team.  

      On the sidelines I repeatedly heard comments about the fact that your arms now seem to extend very close to half way across the court.  Are they performing arm lengthening procedures in China now?  4 weeks did seem like an awful long trip overseas.  Several people were commenting on the horrendous hits you inflicting.  You may have been a priest in a prior life, but I'm sure it was a Jesuit with an attitude.

      It was a fine day of hockey and a good time was had by all, but no need to feel sorry for poor old Rich.

      And yes the dog from the pound was taken back to a loving home completely unscathed and no worse for wear.

      A number of us showed up early today at 10am and mainly just dicked around until 11am when the scrimmage started.  That's just fine.  It was sunny and warm but not crazy hot.  Matt, Drew and Sara came down from SF. 

      I thought Casey said he would show.......... well he didn't, but we had 14 anyway.  A good game which ended up about tied but which felt like I got my ass kicked.  We put Drew, Ben and Matt on one team so they could get a chance to play together.......... so not only did they kick my ass but they were smug about it too.  Well, I deserved it......... I was a priest in a previous life. 

      (Did he actually just write that?)

      A 3 person maintenance team was surprised to see us show up for hockey.  They were replacing all the lights in the pool.  It was cool though, we stayed out of their way and played hockey until they were ready to test the lights.  At that point we all had to jump out of the pool.

      The workers had brought a small dog from the pound with them.  They were going to test their work by tossing the dog into the pool and seeing if he fried.  Of course we thought this cruel so we threw Ben in instead.  Besides a small tingling in his nether regions Ben seemed to be fine.  (I later found out that Ben's ardour for the sport normally causes tingling in his nether regions, so it was just business as usual.)

      A number of people mentioned that they REALLY like the morning game on Sunday..........and  would I consider some more morning Sunday games?  My normal response of "FXXK YOU, leave me alone, don't I do enough for you people already," seemed a tad high handed, so I said I'd diddle another doodle and see what the response was.

      Wendy brought Blondies for after hockey treats............... they were de-frickin-licious.

      It was $5.00 a car day at LGHS, so even if you think the bottom is slow or whatever, you can't really argue about the price!

      And that's how Goze goes,

        Sunday was a beautiful day.  Cool, clear water, and lots of sun.  A perfect day for hockey.  But guess what?  Ben bailed out on us.  Evidently he was worried about strength of the team that Wendy and Miles had planned for him.  However.....Miles didn't show up early.  What a bunch of wusses.  

        That left Wendy to her own devices to stack the teams herself.  But she stacked her team just a little too much.  Alright, way too much.  You can't leave her alone unsupervised for even a minute.  She got double crossed and was the first one traded to balance out the teams.

        My emails did get a couple of irregular players to the pool though.  Andy showed up with his son Charlie.  I can attest that Charlie is much nicer than his dad.  Charlie wasn't smacking people, barging, or trash talking at all.  With a little more pool time I think Charlie will surpass the old man as a hockey player.  It shouldn't take long.

        And Zac showed up with his new bionic cornea.  Remember how Zac always had that look in his eye where you weren't sure if he was about to hug you or break one of your ribs?  Well, he still has that look, but he can see the puck now.  And I'm pretty sure that he can tell which color the sticks are.  Welcome back Zac.

        Guess who else showed up?  Mike Hurtado.  But this guy shows up after practice.  WTF?  No after practice partying unless you put in some pool time.  Uncle T knows that.  Get in for the last 5 minutes and then go party.

        That was Sunday, now on to Tuesday.  We'll see you in MP.
