What’s up Stealth Fans?!?! Looks like I’m going to be blogging for you guys through the rest of the season (which we all hope lasts until May 16th weekend for the Stealth right?) as well as all summer long.
So let’s get started. We lost to Toronto on Saturday in a game that meant nothing to either team. We couldn’t move up or down in the standings and they had been eliminated from the playoffs. We’d also been battling for a playoff spot for the last 6 weeks and finally clinched one with a huge win in Denver last Saturday so getting up for this game was a little tough for all of us. Despite the loss, it was pretty cool to play in Toronto as I had a ton of family and friends that were finally able to come watch me play. I would have loved to have given them a win to go home with but it wasn’t to be and some of them were kind enough to let me know about it afterwards…
On to more important things now. It’s Playoff Time!! This is the most exciting time of year for me because there is nothing I like more then playoff lacrosse. Especially when it’s only one game like the NLL is, there’s so much pressure, normally little plays become huge and the energy surrounding the game is such a rush. We’ll be heading to Portland in a little over a week to take on the Lumberjax in the first round. As you probably remember (I know WE ALL do) the Jax beat us at the HP last year in the first round to knock us out of the playoffs. What better way to start the playoffs then to get some revenge by doing to them exactly what they did to us last year?! I’ll be getting back to San Jose on Wednesday after spending a couple days at home in Ottawa to see my family, then it’s back to business and making sure I’m ready to play come Portland.
See you next week!
