Carol and I joined our son Tim and his wife Kiersten at the Portland Winterhawks game last night. They are season ticket holders and were able to arrange for seats right next to them up off of center ice. It was the first game in the playoffs this year and Portland beat Everett 4-0. Both teams played strong defense, but Portland was better on the scoring opportunities. They actually scored a short-handed goal!
This morning I refereed 4 flag football championship games. All games by the kids were very close and the last one went into overtime. So that made the day long and then we had a lightning delay for 30 minutes which made it even longer.
And of course, it just had to rain! We had some fairly heavy showers throughout the morning and into the afternoon. So the field was a mess, everyone was slipping and sliding and getting full of mud. Needless to say, it was fun! Now I suspect the washing machines are working overtime!
The above cartoon says it all!
