One Rough Hockey Game

:: Tags: Friends, Fun, Hockey, Sports

My adult league hockey game this past Friday night turned out to be one of the roughest hockey games I’ve had in quite some time. They say you tell how hard you’re playing by the amount of rubber left on the blade of your stick and also by the amount of blood you leave on the ice. Well folks, I had both. A ton of shots, several assists, a goal, two or three blocked shots and even a skate blade wound to the back of the leg! Even though he caught me up high on the leg, the cut wasn’t that deep thanks to my wrap around pads, so I’m not too worried about needing stitches or it getting infected. However, I do hope that the blood washes out of my socks. Anyway, it was an awesome game and an even better win!

“Dylan showing off his first lost baby tooth” – Arlington, VA.

Dylan lost his first baby tooth the other day and the first words out of his mouth where… “So, how much do you think it’s worth?!” I think the tooth fairy was way too generous, but he and Julie did do a great job of promoting it… so I played along as a good father should. How do those little chick-lets even stay in his mouth anyway?!

The Circus Video

04/03/2016 – “The Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus” – Verizon Center, Washington, DC.

Here is a small home video taken at the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus the other night in DC. As you can tell, from the extremely low video quality, I took this with my iPhone 6… definitely not my first choice for recording equipment, especially in low light conditions. Dylan had a great time though… you can hear him screaming about half way through the video.

Dylan’s First Circus

“Dylan sporting his big red clown nose!” – Verizon Center, Washington, DC.

This weekend, Julie and I took Dylan, Uncle Mike and the Grandparents to the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus at the Verizon Center. I haven’t been to a circus since I was a kid and Dylan has never been to one, so this little excursion was sure to be a hit! It seemed to me that there were a lot more acts and animals when I saw it as a kid. I remember there being monkeys, polar bears and even Russian Cossack’s performing stunts on horse back. Thank goodness they still had the elephants and the lion cage. All in all it was a great show and Dylan really enjoyed it!
