Game On

Entry 110 for Saturday August 1, 2020

The core questions:

Credit goes to Ben and readers of his blog for these “Four Questions” and the five stretch questions.

  1. What did you do today? Listening to the pre-game show, watching the big game between #Oilers and Chicago and listening to the post-game show.
  2. What did you enjoy? The routine of listening to the hosts Tom and Connor on the pre-game show and then Tom with Hernán on the post-game. Hernán was definitely fired up as he often is.
  3. What did you find difficult? The #Oilers did not play a good game. The structure was not there and Chicago came much more ready to play.
  4. What has changed? Hockey is back. This may seem minor but having a pastime to keep my attention really helps.

    And then, the stretch questions:

  5. What are you grateful for? I keep saying health and family but that is real. #Covid19 deaths have been close with some of my students this summer.
  6. Which changes do you want to keep? NHL hockey is back and I sure hope that the #Oilers go far in the playoffs. Even if they don’t, I will be following these Stanley Cup playoffs more than other years.
  7. What are you scared of? I feel like we are going to be in this same situation for another year at least. Are we prepared?
  8. What has stayed the same? This whole routine, work and work with no view of some vacation times until December.
  9. When did you last laugh? I had many laughs today during the radio shows. Then I cried for the #Oilers loss.
