Wet Wet Roads

A big thanks to all of the players who made it out to their games yesterday. Some of us were worried in the office as the roads were getting pretty bad. But, all of the teams made it and played their games.

Yesterday I (Andrew) checked out a Dodgeball game at Jennie Elliot. This is a great school for dodgeball as the gym is small and the lighting in the school is great. Kristen is out GC at this school and she has been doing a great job. She brings personality to the games and is really laid back. My example of this is her footwear. She rolls into the gyms wearing crocs and no socks. I think once the weather warms up we might see flops and Bermuda shorts.

When entering the gym, the Happy Clampers and Short Bus Squad were playing a game of Docter Dodgeball. This game was straight up insane. Apparently the game had ended in a mercy and they had been playing Dr Dodgeball for a while.

Following this game was team Heads Up taking on the Bluenosers. I really enjoy both teams. Heads Up is a singles team and everyone is there to have fun. The Bluenosers are also fun and they have some stand out players.

The match started and both teams came out strong. One player on Heads Up named Lennox has to have one of the coolest hair-dos. But he also has a very good throw. A player named Dawne on the Bluenosers also has a really nice throw. Her windup makes you think it is going to be a rocket. Well these two players went at it and at one point Dawne jumped in the air and Lennox threw the ball high enough to catch her in the air. Most players weren't looking but they all heard the ball hit Dawne. It made a loud "thump" noise.

Great play by both players and in the end they shook hands and Lennox apologized. The Bluenosers also have a player who wears very bright clothing. He rolls into the gym with an outfit looking like something Kobe Bryant would wear. Whenever he catches a ball he stares at it like a child staring at a Nintendo on a 1986 Christmas morning.

I wanted to post some GC comments today but I want to save them for a rainy day. I do want to thank Don Reiter one of our Floor Hockey GC's for sending in one of the longest game reports ever in CSSC history.

Saturday is our 1st Volleyball Tournament of the season and Stacey has been working hard to get all the equipment, gyms, and schedules prepared. A task such as a Tournament can be pretty tough but she takes time out of her day to relax. Her activity today was a round of office mini putt golf. She received the putter for Christmas and has been using it to relieve stress. She also uses to threaten me (Andrew) when she doesn't get her way. Errrr

Well tomorrow is Friday (cue "Working for the Weekend") and I suggest taking in a show at the Loose Moose Theatre. The Loose Moose is an Improv Comedy Theatre and has shows every Friday at 8:00pm and 10:30pm and on Saturdays at 8:00pm.

I've been acting there since I was 16 and it's always a good time. I remember visiting a gym last week and hearing "hey it's the Asian loose moose guy...". Check out their website here.

Another suggestion involves some drink recipe's I came across while surfing Canoe. You can mix the drink that best suits your current dating situation. The first one is called the Love Birds. The recipe is as follows:
  • 1 Part Starbucks Cream Liquor
  • 1 Part Absolut Raspberry
  • 1 part Hazelnut Liqueur
  • Shake with ice and strain into a glass. Garnish with fresh raspberries.
On the flip side you can try the Breakup:
  • 1.5 parts Starbucks Liquor
  • 1 part Sauza Blanco Tequila
  • Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass.
The final one is the Make-Up:
  • 1 part Starbucks Liquor
  • .5 parts chocolate liquor
  • 1 part Absolut Vanilla
  • Shake with ice and train into a martini glass rimmed with white chocolate and sugar.
Remember to always drink responsibly.

I've noticed that players are not posting comments. I encourage you to do so and the first player to post a comment (relevant or funny) will win two tickets to the Calgary Roughnecks game on Feb 23 vs the Toronto Rock.
