Pond Hockey

09:50 sunrise

And a gorgeous sunrise it was this morning.

3 games, 3 losses
12 total goals for us, 43 total goals against

Team members: Miss Conduct, Rusty Trombone, Tinker Balboa, the White Russian, Barbie McAsskicker, and me, Jamifer.

And so went the 2009 All Northern Pond Hockey Tournament. Team Punky Bruisers (think roller derby) went in knowing that our skills were likely to be no match for people who actually know how to play hockey. We thought that our dazzling costumes would distract opposing teams from the puck. Alas, the temperature was cold enough that striped tights, skating dresses and hot pants were mostly hidden beneath down coats and snowpants, but so it goes. I got frostbite on my toes for the first time since I was a kid (holy crap it hurts when they thaw out!!). Three straight losses meant that we got to go home early and now I can grab a nap before the post-tourney party tonight.
