This year I’ve had a later than normal start to the curling season. Tonight is the first game for the Southsider’s Mixed League and my second game of the year. Technically tonight should be my third game of the year but I missed the first game in the Dental League.

I went home for Thanksgiving this year, but the Thursday before turned out to be the night of the first game for the Dental League. The funny part about that is that I had a wisdom tooth pulled out that Thursday. So last Thursday I was telling everybody that I had to leave town to have my tooth pulled because all the dentists were curling.

I’m looking forward to tonight. I guess I can’t say that my mixed team is all green now since they have last season under their belts. If they continue to progress as well as they did last year then I’ll have a team of all stars by the time finals come around!
