    SHOUT OUT: Trip's poor excuse for trash talk. Stay focused on what is going between YOUR two lane ropes, bro.

    **TOFU - “Three Over Fourth Under,” this was an underwater hockey training set my UW-H team used to do. The full set was 10x100 on a descending interval, 75 swim/25 UW kick. I don’t remember the send offs anymore, but I know that the last 1-2 were on 1:00/:58 or something speedy like that. At the time it was a benchmark for making the junior/senior national squad. I tried out my junior year for the Jr. Nats team. I was the only one to complete the set. However my poor puck handling skills at the time kept me off the team. To use a football analogy, I basically had the fastest 40, the most bench press, and the highest vertical, but I couldn’t run clean routes and catch a football. I had tried out at an early point in my UW-H playing career, and within 6 months of the tryouts, I had some of the best puck skills on my club team...just a day late and s dollar short at tryouts. Too bad too. The Jr. Nats team went on to win gold in Calgary that year :/
