We are the Champions, my friends.....

Well, DD had another game last night. Against our arch-rival team. As you might guess, from the title, the outcome was decidedly in our favor. Yep..... final score: 5-4, the girls won. And poor little Brat actually lost a game to a bunch of "loser girls". Ahhhh, the irony. He did get two shots through on DD, but she saved countless more shots that he made. One particularly nice "deke" this kid tried to make on DD, she pulled right out of the air, snapped it in her glove and then dropped it on the ice in front of him after the whistle was blown.

And DH said (because I was unfortunately at work and didn't get to see the game) that as soon as the game was over, the kids lined up to shake hands & congratulate each other on a good game played. Well, the brat threw a very public temper tantrum, on ice. Threw his helmet, gloves & stick across the ice and stomped off without lining up to shake hands. DH said that quite honestly, that sort of behavior SHOULD land a player in the penalty box for 2 minutes at the start of their next game, for bad sportsmanship. I just reminded DH that quite honestly, the worst of it, for the little boy, will be when the rest of the parents on the team, and their kids, make this kid's life miserable because of his behavior. EVERYBODY saw his tantrum last night, and his lack of sportsman-like behavior. And it won't be quickly forgotten.

So, our girls were thrilled, of course. DH said the entire locker-room ROCKED with them haphazardly singing "We are the champions", missing half the words, off key and out of sync, but rockin' none the less. Ahhh, success.

In other news, the temp here the last couple of days has been getting into the high 20's, and this morning, before the sun even came up, the temp was 30 deg. F. Yes, ALMOST freezing. And there's report of rain in the hills. Which is going to make the drive to town a real b*tch. Ahh well, can't win 'em all, I suppose. But, it makes being outside nice. It's also nice that it's 9:04 and the sun is rising. I can just see pink clouds on the horizon, and through the clouds (light ones, at this point) I can see robin's blue sky. I LOVE it when the sun returns. We spend TOO much time in the winter, without real sunshine. Or, not enough to really get to see, if you work inside at all. Well, it's the end of Jan. and we're seeing sunrises IN THE MORNING, instead of at noon. We're seeing sunset after 5, instead of 3 in the afternoon. It's sunshine, and even if it's not REALLY warm yet, it's still sunshine. Loving it!!!!!!!!

Ok, I think that's it for today.

Hope YOU have a Blessed Day!

Congratulations to DD and her team! That kid is one huge spoiled brat. I'm sure he'll catch hell for it eventually.

I'm so glad that you are seeing more of the sun. I hope it shines warmly and brightly upon you and yours.

Congratulations to DD!! That is fantastic. And you are right, a temper tantrum on the ice will not be soon forgotten by other parents or the kids! The Brat will get justice.

So the sun was just coming up at 9:00? Do you seriously see the sunrise at noon and set at 3:00PM?? Man, that would be one short, depressing day!

Okay, the girl has earned her tattoo...

Victory is so sweet, especially when it comes against the cross town or even the cross gender rival.

Bully for the off spring.

Some day that spoiled bratty boy will get his come-upance! And I hope you are there to see it.

You have to remember, tho', it's truly not HIS fault, but the way he has been raised. Doesn't make his behavior any easier to bear, but it is the parents' fault.

So glad that your team won - finally .... they are headed to the top ... true champions, all the way!
