Note to readers: Tiang is a term we use whenever the ball hits the goal frame. Technically, it should be diang. But I guess we’ll just go along with tiang, eh?
Yesterday’s training was one of the very few trainings that had all eight of us down to train together. And, of all days, it had to be a day where almost everyone willingly joined the new tiang club—SPTC—because almost all of us kept tianging.
When I was doing some stationary shots, there was this time I tianged four times in a row. Four times! It was so frustrating that I got really angry and it made my following two shots in
I did not practice keeping for a long time. So, initially, practically everyone’s balls kept ramming into the goal. But after getting the hang of it, I managed to keep pretty decent balls. Especially those thrown by the alumni guys And Jackson tianged three times in a row! Jacky was much worse. Almost all his balls kept tianging.
Geok Cheng was saying that we practically tianged more than 50 balls yesterday :?
We played pretty okay with the guys. We managed to score three goals, too. If only we can play like this on Saturday (minus all the tianging), we could probably trash the other two teams
It would be Joycelyn’s last match with us So Geok was saying we should try and let her score as many goals as she can this Saturday
It is always amazing to discover the bruises and cuts and abrasions one can get after a training session. It is more of a wonder when one does not realise how one got the injury to begin with.
Check out my bruises on my right arm from keeping:
As well as those on my thighs—courtesy of the Vampire (that’s the brand of the boat):
This one on my left may not look as gross but it hurts much more. I mean, its causing me to limp!
Now, my body is aching everywhere—arms, legs, back, neck… I wish I can have a clone of myself so I can get some massaging done on my back.
