Hosers vs. The Money Shot | Winter Playoffs
We played our second-round playoff game back on May 1. I’ve had the video edited and ready to post for some time, but I just haven’t posted it yet. This was the last game I played before my world got turned upside down. I went into the game knowing that if we won I might need to find a sub for the next game because my Mom had fallen ill and was in the hospital. At that point, I just thought I’d be heading out to North Carolina to be with her. I had no idea that by the end of the week she would have left us.
We lost the game 7-4. I stopped 33 of 39 shots. My expected G.A.A. was 1.43, so I let in almost two goals more than I should have. In the grand scheme of things has I played par for the day we would have still lost. In a way, I am glad we lost the game so I didn’t have one more thing hanging over me that week. All my attention was on Mom and getting out to North Carolina to be with her.
Mom enjoyed watching my game recaps. I think that’s why I have waited so long to post this one. This coming year there will be a lot of first without her, and this is just one more of them that I felt like I could put off. Well, not any longer.
When the Fall season starts I’ll be wearing the pink Toe Drag Apparel Shinny Skins socks I got her while she was going through chemo. I usually wore my Chicago version of these socks, but I’ll wear Mom’s from here on out (till the socks fall apart) so that she is there with me on the ice in some small way.
