And here come some more…

Three playoff games arrived in my inbox today.  I have a local big-school girls’ game shortly, then travel a couple of hours away for more girls games over the holiday weekend… the championship, literally the last game before regionals/state.

Wow.  I’m honored yet again.

A little bit of a milestone as well:  one of those weekend games is the first I will have that is not at an educational institution, but at an edifice designed exclusively for spectator sports (it’s a minor league hockey venue).  I’m pretty stoked about that as well.

None of these are loser-out, winner-to-state games, so in a way, they’re not as intense as some of the games I experienced two years ago (or even last year).  But in some ways, they’re bigger…the Monday game will be the second in a little over a week where girls will be cutting down the net while I’m in the locker room.  So that’s pretty awesome.  I’ve been keyed up all day about it…and my primary job is to keep myself calm now.

Weirdly, I have junior high games in the middle of all this playoff goodness.  Shouldn’t be a problem getting up for those.
