Scotch and Whiskey Night

4 years in the making, the night finally comes where the fabled scotch and whiskey night happens.

The idea: Every one brings one bottle of scotch, then we try them all!

(Pretty good turnout... and yes - I did end up trying them all... wuhahaha)
And yup, the kilted Scotsman showed up too. Air fedexed (the kilt) just in time!

Sooo many scotches... Mmmm... I was I could keep them all :)

Next night: miracle berries... .. .

4 years in the making... the mixers arrive... :)

The 3 bottles on the right, total cost: $188.11... not too bad at all (that's 4L+ of alcohol).

Hattrick and 3 Assists... Half the Team's Offense

So the working out is paying off -

Today, even with a slightly injured left ankle still, I finally broke my drought.

We won 12-0. One could argue we weren't playing that great a team. But the highlight was I scored 3, and assisted 3!

In the Fifa scoring system, I would have a rating of 9.5+ :)

Blowfish Fin Sake... Mmmm..

Tried for the first time sake with a blowfish fin inside it.  Very unique taste.  A bit fishy, but really yummy.

The lady was really nice and pretty talkative.  Very interested in her spheel :P.

The cool thing is this place is right near my place too!

Sunday Soccer

After 4 days of working out, have to say I feel ALOT more in shape. Though still far from it, was feeling good.

So started playing, felt pretty good for the first few minutes. Then ouch, light sprain... shook it off. Kept playing... Result: Got home. painnnnnn. Lol... So old, so old.. and out of shape.

On another note, had some good passes, good detches, but still 0 goals scored. Still just afraid to shoot the ball...
