We won but my nose lost. Wahm wahmm wahhhhmmmmmpppppp.
After waking up to a bloody pillow and then dripping blood into my cereal, I went to get it checked out. It’s a clean nasal septal fracture with a hematoma (but luckily no deviation). Thankfully, I’ve never been much of a sweller, so it’s just a little wider than normal, a bit bruised, and a bit scratched. They sliced open the hematoma, drained it, and then they shoved what basically looked like a skinny tampon with a weird splint thing attached to it up my nose.
Gang Green took home first place in the Midwest Derby Girls Summit Mini Tournament. I had a friendly (yes, really) chat with my Jam ref and the outside pack ref (who came to check out my face) after everyone had packed up and out. She honestly didn’t realize that a person should be ejected for intentionally bashing my face in. She sent the player to the box, but she didn’t eject her. I was hit in the nose 3 separate times, and I had marker from arm numbers ALL OVER MY FACE.
The other team was getting frustrated, and I know what that feels like…so no hard feelings. But it’s just a reminder that, even when I get frustrated during a bout, to keep my head in the game and play with good sportsmanship.
Things like this really make me so much more appreciative of OHRG’s amazing ref staff. They work really hard to stay on top of everything and perform to the best of their abilities at all times. After a game like this, I just want to hug all of our refs and support staff for being wonderful at their jobs.
Our Charter Team (ranked #11) played Arch Rival (ranked #10) last night. It was a really big game for us, in our fight to get to Regionals. Unfortunately, OHRG lost…but I wouldn’t count our CT team out yet. Brewhaha is coming up and there are some games that could help CT make that ranking jump.
