played for first time in years

havent played roller hockey since the late 90's when i was a kid. I'm 25 yrs old.

key notes

1) im slightly out of shape, in my defense we were double/triple shifting because they were missing guys this weekend.

2) extremely glad i bought a full face cage, caught a 40+ mph ball DIRECTLY off the cage

3) i had an absolute blast, this is the greatest sport to play in the world. so much fun.

4) i need to work on my reaction time/speed. should have had a couple passes that i just missed with my feet or stick. half a second quicker and id have been good. i think thatll come as i play more though.

5) my feet are sore, hoping i man up and get used to it as my skates break in and i play more.

6) did i already say i had a blast? good times!

couple fun things...

our first possession of the game i got into a 2 on 1, received pass and wristed it glove side. quite the way to introduce myself. few minutes later i had a beatiful deflection, ball was coming through the slot about a foot off the floor and i tried to block it. hit my stick and roofed it, lol. my bad!

also banged home a rebound in the slot. and my 3rd goal was a weird one... blind backhand slapper that had eyes through traffic from a bad angle.

ive got a ton to work on but had so much fun and did better then i though. just have to pace my self and work on defensive positioning.
