Now, you all know that I’m a pretty good football player. I’d like to think I’m a good athlete in general. That’s why I didn’t think twice when asked to strap on the pads and play goalie last Saturday night at the Mammoth Mascot Game. I’m used to pads, but being a Lacrosse Goalie is borderline ridiculous. After making sure my lower half was taken care of, the next thing I wanted to protect is my face. I mean, when you got a face like mine, it’s worth taking care of. Unfortunately, they don’t make masks for horses, so I had to make my own. I was torn between a “Jason” like hockey mask, or the cage. As it turns out, that plastic is pretty hard to get ahold of, so I went with the wire cage. After getting my bearing in the crease, I did a pretty solid job of defending my territory. I blocked a couple of good shots, and even denied Rocky on a breakaway. (you can see the aftermath in the pictures below) In the end, my team won! I did get called out by Wooly at the end, so we had a little Sumo match, that ended with me giving him a good whack in the shins with my goalie stick. What!? He started it! Check out the pics.
