It’s been almost a week since my last post. Some parts of my week are like a blur to me, but I’ll try to recap everything the best that I can.
Last Saturday was the regionals for Boccia. The day was freakin nuts and not just because I got up at 5:30 in the morning.
I arrived just before 8 with my Coffee and my Boccia gear. It was interesting seeing the staff and athletes arrive. I also got to see all the setting up that was involved. It was pretty overwhelming for a new guy like myself.
My games started shortly after 9 am and I had no real break until 3 PM. They had me face some of the finest players in Canada, which was a bit intimidating. I somehow managed to hold my own against them and a few even complimented me, which meant a lot to me actually.
I didn’t win any games that day, but managed to win some ends. There’s 4 ends in an actual game. My last game was heartbreaking. I came back from trailing 2-0 to make it 3-2 for me. The score was tied 3-3 after 3 ends, but he managed to score 3 points and I loss 6-3.
After that game, I was PISSED. Not to the point that I was telling people off, but pretty close. I was better once I left and cooled off. My Wife had arrived by then and gave me a massage’ on the sidelines.
After over an hour of waiting for my next game, they told me that there was no time for my last game. It would instead be played on Wednesday night, but she didn’t show up. After playing 5 games non-stop, my day was over.
As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t win any actual games on Saturday. When I showed up for practice on Wednesday, I was informed that I was invited to another Tournament in July in Scarborough, Ontario.
My actual reaction to this was simply asking how. How did I manage to qualify without winning a single game? Apparently I impressed the right people with my playing, plus they need more players.
Now I just need to see if it’s paid for and I’m off to Scarborough in July for the Ontario ParaSports Games.
I now firmly believe that a bizarro world exists.
The only problem is that it throws a potential wrench in to my trip to Montreal, but we’ll see.
After Boccia practice, I headed to Yuk Yuk’s to do my Comedy. There was a heckler in the crowd, which always makes things interesting. I managed to shut them up and had a good solid set.
What can I say? I lead a double life I guess.
It’s Victoria Day Weekend here this weekend. I think we’re supposed to honour a beaver named Victoria that wore a crown. Yup, that’s what we celebrate, folks. Put that image in your head.
— My Wife & I spent all Saturday evening in my bed relaxing, talking, and looking at my old photo albums.
— My Sister dropped by on Tuesday with my Nephew. It’s too bad she wasn’t in town longer.
— My Wife & I attended the Tulip Festival on Sunday and went to the International Village. Welcome to Ottawa, suckers! WE LOVE TULIPS WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY TOO MUCH! We hope you like unbloomed flowers. My Wife disturbed a vendor at the Mexico tent by saying that I wanted to buy a wrestling mask and wear it during sex. True story. We’re now banned from Mexico.
— Despite my new bed, I still enjoy sleeping in. I’m not lazy, I’m energetically challenged.
— Karma sounds like a good name for a stripper. I wonder if she’d pay YOU back instead or screw you? Something to think about.
Well that’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed reading this.
See you soon, Blog fans.
