Illustration Friday – Detach

Everyone weekend I take to the field and play Hockey! I love the game!
Sadly though, this years’ season I’ve had quite a bit of bad luck, with injuries. Specifically my right ankle.

So far I’ve spent a month off after I rolled it so badly, it bruised half way up my shin. Then coming back all fired up – but I copped a heavy whack into the very same ankle, by a hockey ball hit at a tremendous speed, at close range – not 30 seconds into the game. GRR!

YEP! What I wouldn’t give to be able to detach that injured ankle, joint or foot and replace it with a brand new one!

I shouldn’t of, but I did play Saturday just gone, as the team would of been short players, and I did my best to half limp/run…. it was an important game, we needed to secure our place in the top four, to continue onto hopefully a Grand Final in coming weeks.

I can happily say we won (2 – 1) and I’m just praying my ankle heals up super fast, this next week, so I can keep playing to the end of season and come home with a medal in my hand!

    If your ankle goes bad, it looks like you’ll be able to be an artist instead. Love the illustration. Very humorous take on the topic, and the current status with your ankle.

    Thanks for visiting!That stinks about your ankle. At least you injured it doing something active. I’d probably roll it that bad getting out of bed…I dig the drawing. Nice work!

    Great drawing and that’s exactly what I thought hockey was invented for! It was also the last sport we did outside when the ground was already frozen, so falling over also hurt like mad. Cool.

    Thanks for the laugh (at your drawing that is, not your injury) You are brave to play hockey… glad you won!
