Apart from the whole Stucky obsession, the other thing keeping me busy these days is sports! And it's March madness, so time to bring out the icon for that other Bucky. (Though how awesome would a Winter Soldier Bucky Badger icon be? I wish I could still draw.)

The Wisconsin Badgers beat the Virginia Tech Hokies (and seriously, Virginia Tech, the Hokies?) on Thursday night, so they'll be playing Villanova this afternoon. Considering Villanova is a #1 seed, this could so south quickly. Or not.

I won't be watching the game live because I'll be taking Ros to her second last hockey practice of the season. Yay for the imminent end of the hockey season! Although also boo, because that means I've only got two of my hockey lessons left. I'm enjoying it rather more than I thought I would, though I still kinda suck. My goals were 1)stopping, 2) crossovers and 3) changing direction without stopping. I've got the stopping down, the right foot crossovers are coming but the left ones are still terrifying, and I can kinda go from backwards to forwards without stopping but not forwards to backwards.

I don't know that I ever want to play in a league (though scrimmages are actually fun now that my skating's a bit better and I finally splurged and got a properly fitted pair of skates), but I may sign up for lessons again next year.

My final sports news is that we finally got the pictures from our Taekwondo Black Belt Spectacular. My favourite is actually from the technical rehearsal of the self defence part of the ceremony, me kicking my partner, one of the fourth degree candidates:

Here's me throwing my partner.

And this is me doing my musical form. I sort of love the costume, and love even more the fact that I put it together totally from things I already owned. Though, man, it was a scramble back stage to get from my ghi into this and then back again.

I have unfortunately become one of those people who gets their black belt and then drastically cuts back on their training. Mostly because I tore my piriformis muscle (which is a little muscle behind your glute, so I officially have a pain in the butt) at a class in September and the stupid thing is taking forever to heal.

I hope you're injury is healed up soon! Darn it anyway! Have fun and don't be a stranger. (Well, any stranger than you already are!) *runs and hides*

I briefly had it down to no pain, but it keeps flaring up again. I fear it may just be I'm at that age where some injuries just don't heal up well. Booo.

I'll make sure I'm merely strange, not a stranger. ;-)

Those pics do look so awesome! Sorry about the pain in the butt *g* (I am laughing, because apparently butt jokes are funny for life, but also am sorry and do hope it heals up quick)

Hey, I've been making that joke since it happened. ;-) Also, it is both a literal and figurative pain in the butt, so there's that.

You are an amazing woman P, I take my hat off to you for your guts and determination at giving anything a crack including coaching. I have no idea where you find the time in your hectic life to fit everything, writing included! *g*

Thanks for sharing your piccies, it must have been nice to receive them after all this time and you are a clever clogs making your own costume, are there no end to your talents?

I hope you pain in the butt heals soon. I reckon I got a similar, if not the same, injury trying to learn to ski a few years back (failed btw), it took a few months to heal unfortunately.

There are things I won't try. Like skiing! (You're brave for trying that. Ros really wants to do more downhill after she went on a class trip, but I reckon that's just going to end in a bad injury for me.) But I'll try anything that's unlike to, ya know, kill me.

Also, I didn't so much make my costume as accumulate it, but I'll take the compliment.

The pain in the butt is a *real* pain in the butt. I hope yours healed okay.

I didn't even know you were taking hockey lessons but I'm glad to hear they went well enough to want to sign up again. :D

That first picture of your kick is great.

I started after Christmas. Huh, I posted a pic of me in full gear on FB but apparently forgot to put it here. I mostly did it so I didn't suck whilst helping out with Ros' team on the ice, but I've been enjoying it in and of itself. Who knew!

That was a nice side kick, if I do say so myself. ;-)
