Shameless Bragging

I know it's not polite but I just gotta say this ladies hockey thing is going so well right now! The Saginaw Spirit had their annual "Pink Out" game on Saturday where the guys wear pink and part of the ticket sales benefit breast cancer research. They also honor survivors and remember those that have died of this deadly disease. Before the Spirit played, they had us gals and our teams play. It was a blast! I had 2o personal fans there as well as many of Tommy's hockey families were there as they are big Spirit supporters. Our teams skated to a 2-2 tie and I scored a goal!!! It was my first goal since having Ashley and only my 2nd goal ever. And I would be lying if I didn't say I felt awesome hearing them announce over the PA system, "goal scored by #22 Dawn Papesh unassisted." I told you I was shameless. It wasn't even that sweet of a goal as it bounced off another player's skate but it was a goal and I was stoked!! And the boys were so excited.
Here I am going in! Great camera work I must say. ;)

Tonight I headed out to Bay City thinking I was having a practice and we ended up having a game. 5 of our girls didn't show up so we only had two full lines. 60 minutes of hockey! Tiresome! But holy cow, I scored another goal tonight, then another, and another. I am now the proud owner of a hat trick! It was sweet. The girls kept getting the puck to me and somehow it found the back of the net. We held on to win 6-5! Yee Haw! I'm loving it!

And that my friends will be enough of my brazen boldness.

Dawn what a bummer that you didn't think it was a game. Did anyone get to see you in your glory?

Keep it up, and I'll just sit back and be a loser.
