Sweet Cal serves up his first weekly take on life in and around the Big V
Sweet Cal Diary
I apologize in advance Big V world for this poorly executed attempt at a blog, but the powers that be have indicated that for some unknown reason, people may actually want to hear about my budding career in the Big V. Don’t worry, it won’t be war and peace, I don’t have a long enough attention span for that, so I’ll settle for around 422 words.
I’ve had the most minimal amount of training in recent times on the account of me being away for 2 weeks soaking up the sun along the Great Ocean Road, getting my tan on. Now I’m feeling fresh and as pumped as I have ever been for the upcoming season in 2K11, but the bodies just gotta keep up with the mind.
This was brought under the spotlight last night when me and my 17 year old brother went hammer and tongs on our ring at home, using up several bottles of WD-40 to get rid of the rust that had accumulated. I had momentarily forgotten what it felt like to be corked in the quad and have slap marks on my forearms (it was the only way my little bro could stop this 80kg freight train scoring in the paint at will) but the memories soon came flooding back 3 ice-packs later.
At the time of writing, I have my first training session back tomorrow night with the McKinnon boys and I’ll have my work cut out for me to catch up as they have an extra week of training under their belt. No problems though, I’ll just have to bust my ass and be the hardest worker on the floor to make up for the lack of talent at my disposal.
This coming weekend is the Warrnambool tournament which should be a good experience. Considering I’m only a sophomore and if you have read my older articles, I hadn’t even played rep before my rookie Big V season, this is all kinda new to me. So I’m just hoping I can come in, make some 3 balls and look good at the same time.
From a team perspective, it’ll be great to head out as one unit, get some of that bonding stuff down pat and take the exciting drive back down through Colac, trophy in hand.
Well to be honest, that’s it for now, told you it’d be short and sweet. I’ll probably have another dip at this next week, if it doesn’t get the axe.
