Second Place

So, according to the hubby, the championship game went very well. We lost, 5 to 2. But everybody played a good game, kept it clean & friendly, and had fun. Our girls got medals for second place, and of course the Healy team got trophies for first.

The Healy coach approached DD after the game and told her she played an excellent game, and that he's really impressed by how thoroughly she covers her corners while in the net. He also said, though, that he's told his team to take it down the center when approaching her, because she's really rusty on covering her 5-hole (between the legs) and that they're most likely to get a shot on her if they place it there. That's how they got 4 of their 5 goals, I guess. So, she's taking it as definite constructive criticism and understands that she needs to brush up on the skills that would allow her to block the 5-hole better. Now, let's see if she actually WORKS with that information. *grin*

So, slight disappointment on the part of our team, but all in all they had fun & they're happy with second place. (Esp. considering they lost to ALL the other teams in last year's christmas tournament, coming in last place.)


A very yummy Salmon recipe to share with y'all. This is the fish recipe I made Saturday night when Dad came over for dinner. No title for it, just very good!

6 to 8 Salmon filets, skin on one side
1 bottle Lawry's "30 Minute marinades" Tequila Lime with lemon juice
lemon pepper
1 whole lemon, cut for juicing
brown sugar

Marinade the filets in the marinade for at least 30 minutes, preferably several hours to overnight.

Place a large piece of foil on grill and place fish on foil, skin side down. Grill should be heated at low to medium heat.

Sprinkle fish lightly with lemon pepper. After 5 to 8 minutes, squeeze lemon over fish filets.

After 10 to 15 minutes, fish should start to peel away from skin. Seperate & flip filets over to otherside, "face" down onto the skin.

Grill another 8 to 10 minutes. During last 5 minutes, sprinkle fillets with Brown Sugar.



So, any good thoughts or prayers you may with to send Dh's way, I'm sure would be appreciated. Today's the day he goes in for his root canal. And he's not looking forward to it at all. He was in a pissy mood yesterday, kept grumbling about how his tooth doesn't hurt any more. *sigh* I told him that if the dentist says he no longer needs the RC, then great, but otherwise he needs to get it done so that hopefully the tooth doesn't start hurting AGAIN, when he least expects it. Anyway, Dh's appointment is at 1 pm.

I'm going in to work late today. I don't have to be to work till 4:15, then I work till 9:15 tonight. Tomorrow I start back to my regular schedual.

Have a Blessed Day!

Hey K,
Sounds like T got some good comments from the other coach and hopefully she'll work on that aspect of being a goalie. I'm sending positive thoughts S's way... hope he is able to go through with it and get his root canal done.

Love ya!

Congrats to DD's team for taking second place!

Ugh! I am so sorry to hear about DH's root canal. He'll be in my thoughts. Those are so awful.

Congrats on the win! Second place is pretty darn good.

Your fish recipe sounds great. Salmon is pretty much my favorite fish.

I hope all has gone well for your hubby at the dentist and that you have a good night at work.

Root canals are no fun at all.

If you think he was pissy before going in just wait until its over...

Hey, second place is better than not playing in the big games.

Congrats to the girls. Second place is fantastic! I'm sure they would have been happier with first place, but they should be proud of themselves for getting second place. Well done to them!

And, good luck to DD on improving the skills she needs to improve.
