Shortly before mass I got a call from my high school friend Rob that he was in town today and tomorrow to attend a couple of BU hockey games. We agreed to get together after tonight's game.

After mass I went down the street to fj and pinkfish's place for the tail end of their party. I got to see the aforementioned hosts as well as rsc, jwg, jss1113, and nooks, who I had just met. I was hoping to see danger_chick, especially since I wasn't able to attend her party the day before, but -- alas! -- she'd already left by the time I got there. I hung out there for about an hour and a half before I left to meet up with Rob.

It was good to see Rob. We went to high school in San Diego together. He then attended BU Law during my two years in Easthampton and my first year in Boston. He comes back to Boston about twice a year for hockey games, and he joins me and my Chargers Board friends at our annual Chargers road trip. I almost flew out to Korea to visit when he was stationed there. (He is an officer for the JAG in the Air Force, currently stationed in Mississippi.) He's the only friend from high school that I keep in touch with regularly.

When we were in Houston he confided that he had bought a ring for his girlfriend but hadn't worked up the nerve to pop the question yet. Today I found out he popped the question and received a positive reply. The wedding is going to be in San Diego on June 11. He told me that he and Pam want me to sing at their wedding.

I am guilty of counting my chickens before they hatch. I stand to win $600 if the Chargers advance to the Super Bowl and an additional $1250 if they win it, this off a $20 initial investment. I've been thinking of what to do with the money, as the Chargers actually stand a pretty decent chance of accomplishing both this year, surprisingly. Originally I had planned to pay off my credit card debt with my winnings. Then I thought maybe I would spend the few hundred required to attend the game if the Chargers travel to New England for a playoff game. However, now I'm thinking I'd better save that money to fly back to the States for Rob's wedding. I would be honored to attend and sing at the ceremony. Of course, I am so getting ahead of myself here.

I'm glad he has found someone with whom he has so much in common. He is a good guy, and I am happy for him.

Tell him Tony says hi!


I reffed/umpired with him and we used to play hockey together. I saw him and Todd last night. I assume he will be at tonight's game too.

Holy small $%&* world!

Helloooo?!? Of course you do, silly! How do you think I know you?! When you walked into that party at zzbottom's last year, I recognized you not as wildraven but as Tony who I see at hockey games with Rob and Todd every time Rob comes to visit! ;) Yeah, I asked about you last night, and they said you were there but left right after the game. They'll both be at the game tonight at Agannis, so be sure to say hi for me!

Feeling like an idiot
OK... Brain fart...

Somehow, when reading LJ, I think I'm in another, non-hockey world.

Heck, when I write about my coaching (something I like to look back on later and see what I was thinking at what time), I feel I am out of sorts and probably confusing to some people.

I still get all brain-crashed when worlds collide.

See ya!
