Derby Dismay

I will have to start with another apology this week, this time for not posting any sort of blog last week. As some of you may know, last week was a bad week for me with the destruction of Dorothy meaning it was only right for me to Boycott any writing until she was fixed.

But good news!! She’s all well and good and looking better than ever with her new hard-mesh face and tightened head – thanks to El Capitano – and she even had her first outing on Saturday in the local derby with Portsmouth 2nds – although it didn’t exactly go to plan.

Pre-match was an absolute dream for me, practicing with the made-over Dorothy let me realise that actually I’m not that bad at throwing a Lacrosse ball, I just had to play with a semi-retarded stick for a month or so. Despite having to get used to the ball bouncing off the net a bit more, the modifications have made me a lot more confident in throwing the ball, which will hopefully eventually rub off on the rest of my game as I get more comfortable with it.


This is yet another new feature, plucked from the infinite mind of yours truly, called ‘the Broken man Chronicles’. This is a different way of saying Injury of the week, but I think that sounds too common for CrazygoalieLAX.
