Drum Roll Please...

I finally scored a goal!!!! After months of anticipation I waited until the last shift of the last game to finally put one in! Yahoo! It was a breakaway goal and I just shot it hard and by golly it hit the back of the net. Yes!

It was our playoff night so we had to play both Jill's purple team and the pink team. The first game we lost 2-0 but played well. It was a very rough and physical game. They have an awesome defense and I don't think Jill saw a shot from our team. We tied the pink team 1-1. (Thanks to me...hehe)

My Dad, Mom, and the boys were there. Joe had to go into work because his phone system blew up. I'm sure he'll blog about it. My family must have been going crazy! I know I was.

After the game the coach gave some feel good talk about how everyone has improved and all good stuff. He comes back a few minutes later with a puck and I don't remember really what he said but he tells everyone that he is giving it to my son, the little blonde for being our team's biggest fan. I didn't even know he noticed Austin but I guess he did. Austin was on Cloud 9 when I got out of the locker room. So it was a pretty special night.

They are going to have a summer session of hockey. Jill and I will be in NYC next week so we will miss the draft. Will we end up on the same team? Or will we continue our friendly rivalry? Time will tell. Our team finished 2-3-2. Not bad, and totally fun win or lose!

Yeah Dawn!!!!
We all knew you could do it!
We most have just missed it. (DARN!)
How cool that Austin got the game puck!
I wish we would have stuck around. I just hate how I smell after the games and needed a shower BAD!

Thanks Jill, it was cool and how nice that I got a goal and it didn't have to be against you. :)

Hope you're fresh as a daisy now. That's an occupational hazard I guess.

Congrats Dawn!! (been without internet since Sunday so am playing catch up, sry)

So cool that my little buddy got to keep a puck!! How exciting!

Let me know how Tommy does in play-offs. Drew's first game is tonight at 7:15. They ended up tying for 2nd/3rd place in regular season.

Happy Birthday Dawn!! Hope it was great!

Thanks Sherri, we went to the Tiger game and they won!! I'm 2-2 this year. Austin is 3-3 lifetime.

Tommy's team was eliminated yesterday 5-4 in extra innings. Bummer. Tommy had an RBI and scored a run so that was cool. Now it's 8 & under ball.

Awesome job!!! I wish I could have been there to see it. One of these days I'm getting to a game!!

Dawn said...

Thanks Angie - yes you have to come to a game sometime. It is quite comical.

sherri said...

Bummer that his team was eliminated, but an RBI and a run in is GREAT!! WTG Tommy. Good luck in the 8 & under team Tommy!! Let us know a schedule and we can try to get to a game.

WTG Tigers....Looks like Austin is good luck!!

Yeah! How exciting, bet your adrenaline was going! I remember going to IHL games with my grandpa when I was little, it was the coolest thing when they would flip a puck up to you, even cooler if you actually caught one from the game! I still have about 30 of them somewhere and a couple broken sticks too. Okay, sorry for the trip down memory lane. Anyways, CONGRATS!

Sherri - The Reese tourney is the last weekend in June. I'll let you know.

Kelly - I used to go to IHL games in Saginaw, you probably used to cheer for the Ft. Wayne Komets right? That's so cool you got pucks and sticks. You need to get Kenzee skating!!
