Since they won a game, they got to play a consolation game on Sunday (for 5th to 8th place) - at 10 AM. Everyone was less than thrilled at the early time - since we all live out of town, that means getting up at 8 to leave by 9 to get there before 10. But we all made it out - even Pat's cousin, whom we invited the night before after being down one man on Saturday. Turns out the other team didn't show up - we won by default. Everyone showed up for nothing. Well. Not nothing. They all won a toque. Everyone agreed they'd most likely do it again next year - it was a lot of fun!
I brought the camera but left it in the car both days (I had it Sunday though). So all I have are 3 crappy cell phone pictures. The first one I took is probably the best - and also at a lower resolution. Awesome, I know. Here's one of my sexy hockey player (giving me the finger - Dalton, a friend of Matt's, beside him laughing):
And here are a couple action shots of them getting ready for the second half of their winning game: Pat's the one moving in both - Dalton is #3 & crouched down in the other picture. My younger brother John is 24, with the grill in the background.
Clearly, I was a fan & not a photographer.
Besides the tournament, we had a pretty good weekend. We spent the rest of the time with friends & family and we actually saw everyone we wanted to - that never happens! On Sunday evening, after a few drinks, Terri-Anne (my sister-in-law) read me, my mom & Emily (John's girlfriend) our tarot cards. Mine was a very accurate reading. A new step predicted in my learning & career (starting my PhD within a year), spending money is where I am my own worst enemy & the description of my personality was pretty bang on.
We left early on Monday since I had to go to work briefly to take care of my adipocyte cultures. We had a great trip though & look forward to heading North again at Easter! Maybe I'll take a few more pictures then...
