Bellisomo's Blog - Training Camp

Hey guys, my name is Luca Bellisomo and I'm in my first year with the club. I'm a defender, primarily centre back although I've been out on the right side as well. Today marked the first day of our training camp in Seattle, and it went something like this... We trained this morning (Wednesday) at 10am in Vancouver. It was a pretty light session due to the fact that we have a game tomorrow against Portland. After training we had some time to grab a quick lunch before we met at 2pm at Burnaby 8 Rinks to board the Greyhound and got going. We arrived in Seattle at about 7pm, dropped our stuff off in our rooms (my roomie is Stefan Leslie) and went for dinner at Dino's, a little Greek/Italian restaurant. Taka was having a tough time with the menu, but Serge managed to help him out a little bit. There was a lot of dodgy sign language being used, and it's quite possible that Taka was more confused after speaking to Serge than before. Either way, Taka ended up having the salmon which he claimed to have liked (he gave me the thumbs up). And so now I'm at the computer in the hotel with Eddie Sebrango, who is writing some email's. I'm going to head to bed soon and try and get a good sleep in preparation for our game tomorrow. It is our first game this year against a league opponent, and so will be a good experience for us and an good indicator of how the team is looking. Can't wait. Cheers, Luca
