While it is true that I own goalie gear (using some borrowed skates), have done it a dozen times in rentals, and occasionally come up with some seemingly impressive glove saves (thank you, twenty five years of softball), I am absolutely not a goalie. It turns out this fact is not enough of a deterrent to keep the tournament guys from asking me to play in net this weekend.
I’ve always thought this tournament would be fun, as are most tournaments. Hey, competition is a blast, man. The good news (for the teams) is that they will get an equal chance to fire away at me, due to the two ten-minute period format of the tournament. I will sucketh equally for both teams.
And why not? What else are you going to do on Easter weekend? Go to church? Brunch? Eat a lot of ham and mashed potatoes for dinner?
Of course, I will still do all of these things. After I play ten games over the next two and a half days. I guess there is nothing wrong with earning your Easter dinner.
There may be video if I can talk Scott into sticking around.
