How TGirls Stay in Shape

  • Ok, maybe this isn’t the way most TGirls stay in shape, but I spent the past three days letting burly Canadians throw me on the ice and beat me with sticks:

    Yes, that’s actually me in the blue there about to get checked into the boards by three guys, each of whom has legs as big around as my waist. Look closely, it’s true! Never ever challenge Canadians in a game they invented. Ok, actually it was a lot of fun, but damn do they take hockey and broomball seriously. Yes, I was playing broomball, which in the US is like hockey for people who can’t skate, but in Canada it’s a real sport. And for those of you who don’t know, it’s played on ice but you wear shoes, it’s played with a ball instead of a puck, and the sticks are a different shape.

    Lucky for me though, Canadians also take their beer-drinking seriously, and off the ice they’re pretty good about sharing too :)

    I know, I know, what’s a cute gurl like me doing playing a rough sport like broomball? Well, all I can say is at least it’s not rugby . . . Actually though, I catch and throw like a girl, so that really limits my choices of ways to stay in shape! Running fast, using a stick, and kicking I can do :)
