Captain’s Log. Diaper Date 2691. Daddy Chronicles: Lost a Step.

Today I feel old. I remember my dad complaining about his knees and joints after playing basketball. I remember thinking that it was an excuse.

I now know that not to be true.

Last night I played in our annual Charity Basketball game. 20 minute halves. Hockey style changes. Large team. I played maybe 10 minutes combined over two games. I feel as though I played every minute of both games.

I think I have lost a step.

It’s funny because I remember in the past feeling like there weren’t enough minutes in the game. I have gone from running the floor to enjoying cheering from the sides.

I may have lost a step but the important thing is that we did some serious work for our charity. More news on that coming soon.

In the meantime, I’m gonna sit here and ice. And contemplate retirement.

That’s all for now…Captain out!

    Ah it remember that feeling, I think my groin muscle does too after a crossover gone wrong. I’d like to think that now we get to play smarter, not harder… At least that’s what I tell myself.

      For me smarter not harder is soon going to be watching from the bench! But you are right. Lol
