Well, the trip is over. Back at work trying very hard to fight off a cold that's sneaking up on me. In total I put around 2800km on the car this past week. I managed to do Prague to Montreux in 7hrs. A little crazy given I was on snow tires and it was 25C on the road!!! Ahh well. Last thing I wanted to do was spend even more time in the car. To be honest, I'm a little sick of driving. No more big road trips for a few weeks, atleast.
So, the tournament. Was fun. Lots of fun. The group of guys I was with? A hoot. Could have been the first time I've played for a team where everyone got along. No personality conflicts, nothing. I'm hopeful that some photos will surface soon online. I don't have that many. The tournament organizers ensured that there were videos taken and lots of photos. There is a very nice team photo that was done. I am hoping to find a copy of it so I can post it online.
In total we lost 3 games, won 4, and finished 3rd in the tournament. I believe that I managed to win the top knucklehead category with the most penalties in the tournament. I finished the last game with 16min in penalties. I don't agree with the reasons ... c'est la vie. I had fun. The ovation I received as I left the ice in with 4 min to go in the last game (game ejection) was the highlight for me. I don't know if they were clapping because I amused them ... or if they were clapping because they didn't like me and were happy I was leaving. I'll believe in the clapping for me because i'm the best. Yep.
