Week off in the schedule. Even with 13 days to recover, my ankle and shoulder are still barking (never get old). I'm getting pretty disheartened about the whole season. It's a league where the rink puts together teams that are supposed to be balanced based on an early draft skate, but we've lost our first two games 11-2 and 11-1. Last game we only had 8 skaters show up, and I am not in good enough shape to log 28 minutes on D, especially when most of it is actually spent actively on defense in our own zone.
Trying to maintain a positive outlook for tonight's game. If everyone shows up and the other team is a little weaker than the ones we've had so far, maybe we can keep it competitive-ish. Tonight would be a good night for the hockey gods to let me pot one to keep spirits high.
I'm a little tempted to just eat the sunk cost and abandon ship for another rink, but I like my teammates and don't want to leave it even worse for them.
