1st hockey game!

Oh my gosh what a blast! I am really in bad shape though. We only skate for 2:00 minute shifts but I'm just dead about a minute in. Joe gave it to me pretty good that I didn't skate hard the whole time and it's because I would have probably needed to be taken off the ice on a stretcher if I did. It was a 2-2 tie. Jill played great, denying me big time on my one great chance all alone on a breakaway. She of course was screaming at me my whole way in. :) We razzed each other all day; we have a nice friendly rivalry. I only crashed twice, one time hitting my head pretty hard. I got up very slowly, Joe got that picture. I think you can almost see the pain on my face on the blown up picture. :) How many times can you hit your head hard before getting brain damage? LOL. It was on my offensive end and good ole Jill was yelling are you ok Dawn? And some die hard on her team told her to "focus!!" Too funny, I'm glad at least Jill still cares.

Joe took some pictures tonight. I'm not witty enough for great captions...sorry! Hope you like them. I have my team pictures for Chicks w/Sticks tomorrow. Another day of fun!

Congrats on making it through your first night! The first game may have been rough, but I'm sure you kicked butt. Hope you have a great season.

What a great time!
We made it through our first game, now Saturday will be a breeze. I like your pictures. Your slide show did not mess up your blog, what is my problem?
See you at practice.
