20160731 - Hockey

League game - 1 hour

Played the top team in our division. We gave them their only loss earlier in the season.

Lost 3-6. Basically we would score, they would score. Until they scored three goals that we couldn’t answer.

Knees complained until after a couple of shifts. I kept up the the fast kids pretty well.

In other news… I was informed by a vet tech friend she has now seen everything.

Lincoln, Ne. - Two women brought their neutered male French Poodle in for emergency care. They insisted that s/he was transgendered. Wearing a pink dress with a pink bow, “Tiffany” is now recovering from surgery.

20160802 - Hockey

Skills Camp - 1 hour

Camp is still not over. Lot’s of edge skating drills, 1 on 1, 2 on 2, 3 on 2 scrimmages. 1 on 1 with using angles as defense to cut off the offense.

Ended with a double down and back the length of the rink sprint.

Iced my knees at the rink and went home.

Besides the normal workouts, I’m doing a pushup challenge to bring awareness to Veterans suffering from PTSD. 22 Veterans a day take their life. The challenge is called #22 pushups for #22Kill.

The idea is to do 22 pushups for 22 days straight, and upload the video to one of 22Kills social media sites.

Sometimes I have to do a retake on the video. This is one of the reasons why.

^^That’s hysterical! And while I’m pretty liberal, that dog story is disturbing.

So glad you are doing better health-wise.

I was invited to do this 22 Kill thing a couple months ago. Never got it done. Would like to do one set on top of Enchanted Rock. Oliver just wants to help! I face this problem often. Got GT’s tail with the ab roller one day… :joy:

20160803 - Hockey

Wednesday Night skate - 1 hour

Went in concerned about my knees, after a couple of shifts they felt ok. Had enough people on each bench to make it a fun skate. Several good shots on net, one almost got through on a one timer. Needed to be another inch to the right, got stopped by the corner of the goalies leg pad.


Oliver main purpose in life is to jump up on the sink and meow until I turn the water on for him.

That and eat cat food.

Don’t forget shit cat food too. At least he wasn’t clawing onto your back while doing push ups.

Planned on more accessory work, but I stupidly answered a phone call from an ex girlfriend between the two sets.

She asked what I was doing, I said accessory work at the gym. She promptly went on a 30 minute discussion about her life. Meanwhile I had the fan at that end of the gym blowing cold air on me…

Finally got the call ended, went to do the next set and that was the end of that.

In other Omaha news, minor excitement as we sent the baby tornado across the Missouri river to Iowa.

She just wants you for your body. Wow! On the waterspout! It seemed pretty happy right there.

Congratulations! Glad you are back up!

So happy to hear it, Tom. What a relief that this thing has turned out to be not such a big deal.

The thing was, it was a big deal.

Fortunately, I’m a active healthy person, and I was able to recover very quickly.

It amazes me how my brain was able to work around the damage and in 2 weeks pretty much totally recovered.

I’m also fortunate that the damage was so localized. The ER Docs were convinced for a while all I had was sudden onset vertigo because I had no loss of strength, no slurred speech, and no drooping of facial muscles.

And then the entire 1 cm sized object that was on the mitril valve on Tuesday, and gone on Friday…

I’m thankful every day. :smiley:

So to start off my weekend right, I won 2 passes to a local rock concert next Friday from a radio station. :slight_smile:

Cool! Who ya going to go see?

The Beat Seekers
Forever Endeavor
Super Moon

They’re on Youtube.

It was one of the “Caller number 10” contests.

Heard announcement, got out phone, contact list, radio station entry

1st call - busy
2nd call -busy
3rd call - ring…

Thought to myself, well that’s wrong…


Same station, DJ that I won the tickets that ended up with me being next to Shirley Manson in my pic here.

20160806 - 54th Birthday

Made it through another year. And time for change.

You’ll find my new training log here.

I’m old, not obsolete
