San Diego skater down.
Finally, this game marked my first ejection! Like in basketball - five penalties and you are outta there. I still claim only three of those penalties were legit - but what can you do?! By the end of the game, six of the LA skaters had been kicked out, so I was in good company. So at the end of the third quarter, I got to watch the rest of the game with Jessica in the stands, with a beer.

There is an amusing write up at losangeleous.com, with more awesome pictures, including my very first jam blocking (which I did a terrible job at), and the rarely seen leg whip.
Our last game of the regular season is May 31st - we play the Sirens one more time. The Cookies are hopeful we can remain undefeated going into the champs, but I know this is probably going to be the toughest game of the year!
