      We had 9 people on "da Wall" this Sunday...... not 9 people on each wall.  That's a pretty big friggin' pool to fill up with 9 people, but we improvised with some of the inflatable friends that Doug keeps in the back of his car for situations similar to this.  It turns out that Doug's inflatable friends go down even less than the rest of us go down.  Just try to go down on an inflatable friend in 13 feet of water - no easy task I'm telling you. 

      We also improvised by marking off a smaller section across the middle of the pool with pucks, that kept the playing area down to an area less at odds with our limited abilities.  It worked pretty well.

      Lots of time outs for "gear adjustments" etc.  The inflatable friends floated out of bounds a lot so we we eventually handcuffed them together with some other stuff we found in Doug's trunk.

      Dinner Club consisted of leftovers from the back of Brigit's car.  That was dee-licious I am a-telling you.  John P told us a story about his Mom and Pop who were  big-time hippy wrestlers called Lysurgic Linda and Larry.  A fun time had by all.

      Duy's Dominatrix dropped him off at the curb before play time, removed his chastity belt so he wouldn't drown, then picked him up promptly after the game affixing said belt with a ruthless efficiency reminiscent of the Borgias.    As he was driven off he yelled out, "Don't you guys just wish!!!"

      Ouch.

      Yeah...... probably.


      Ken showed up but let us know, among other things, that the deep pool was too hot and too deep to accomodate him.  He shall not be returning to play at Gunderson.  Are there others of you similarly afflicted?   (I also found out from him that someone had the effrontery to locate the Highland pool a long way from Fremont with a toll bridge in between said pool and said town.)

      It's not always easy being Goze.

      And That's how Goze goes,

              The other night we heard Matt was driving down from SF for hockey through 2 hours of traffic so we prepared a real Club Puck Hello for him and dicked around until about 10 minutes before the pool closed to start the game.   Needless to say he was SHOCKED, SHOCKED to find so little punctuality in a Bay Area hockey group.

              Today we started the game 10 minutes  before he got there, so in order to punish him for his lack of punctuality we made him wait until half time to join the game.

              What will we do next time to play with his mind?



              A couple practices before that we were all pleased to see Aaron join us for a practice.  As you may or may not know Aaron had a serious bicycling accident and head injury (from which he is well recovered - thank Goodness).   Not trusting to the opinions of the neurosurgeons, neurologists and other over paid health care specialists (yeah like, "I have a degree in science and a diploma on my wall so give me all your money."  Yeah well like FXXK YOU and FXXK science you parasite!!........  but I digress...........)...................

              ANYWAY......... not trusting to "traditional" medical opinions and being quite the amateur neurologist myself (as well as being steeped in woodsy lore) I decided to administer my own neurological test to determine if he was fully recovered.  If his behaviour was consistent with his behaviour before the accident then all was well.  So I administered my test question (designed to elicit an emotional response),

              "So Aaron, was there any personality change due to the accident, like maybe you became a nice guy and people actually like you now?"

              To which the subject replied,

              "FXXCK you, you pencil necked poor excuse of a limp-sticked hockey player!!!"................

              And although we were on the same team he still kicked  my ass all during the game.............

              Conclusion: No observable personality change after the accident.  The patient is cured.

              (And he still plays great hockey too!)

              Welcome Back Aaron!!!!!!!!!!!!!


              Today we had a total 20 twenty players although they weren't all in the water at the same time.  Casey and Andre had to leave early but Uncle T came for the last 1/2 hour.   Scott Seman's daughter, Rebecca, and one of her friends, Emma, also joined us for the whole game.   The weather was perfect, the water was crystal clear, and we played so much hockey most of us could barely walk after the game, except for Mike who was just warming up for his bike ride back home.........by way of Sonora or some other equally unlikely place!

              (It turns out there is a price to be paid for messing with Matt's mind.............  you have to kill yourself by actually playing over 2 hours of hockey!)

              And That's How Goze goes,

              Goze
