Bragging daddy alert: Hat trick
Colin logged a hat trick earlier today in his Tampa Bay Metro League game against one of the Ellenton teams. Each goal, if I do dare say so myself, was pretty clutch:
~ His first goal, a wrist shot that caught the top corner in the first period, tied the game at 2;
~ the second goal, a low wrister that came a period after he took a pretty hard spill into the end boards, gave his Lightning team a short-lived 6-5 lead in the third; and
~ his hat trick goal, off a goal-mouth scramble with 36.5 second left to play, forged a 7-7 tie.
As easy as it would have been for him to call it a day after hurting his back a bit and getting the wind knocked out of him, the fact that he kept playing, hustled his tail off and didn't quit when his team was behind, showed exactly the fire that burns inside.
All I can say, buddy boy, is well done. You led by example. And that's all I can ask.
