This past weekend was a double-header, and was also something of a Grandparentpalooza! Nana and Papa both came to the first game, and Grandma and Grandpa Bickis came to the second! It was so nice to have such a big cheering section!
The first game was against the Whitecaps, and THEY WON!!!! It was a total nail-biter. Alex got two goals, one on a PK, and Blake got the third to bring them above the Whitecaps’ two. Our regular goalie was late to the game because he was competing in a triathlon, so Hunter stepped up to the plate and was AWESOME!
The boys had a couple of hours to kill until their next game, so we took them all to BW3. They played Trivia while they waited and had a great time. In the meantime, Mike and I were entertained by their Coach, who has officially dubbed Brendan “Goofball.” I’m not sure if that’s an improvement over “Skinnyribs,” but I doubt we have any say in the matter.
The second game was awesome as well, although they didn’t win. Brendan played incredibly well (the whole team did), and nearly got a goal! He charged up there with the ball and shot, and then some kid came out of nowhere and deflected it away from the goal. Shucks. But we’re still super proud of him!
