the last game(s) of the regular 2015-2016 hockey season!

the last game(s) of the regular 2015-2016 hockey season!

after 4 months of sitting in hockey arenas on weekends, i almost can’t believe the season is just about over. two games against onalaska today, the kids lost the first game 3-4 but won the second and last game of the regular season 4-3!

it’s always good to end the season with a win!

the next time they play a game it will be against dodgeville in the state championships on march 12th. they lost to dodgeville by one point in a game earlier in the season and i think they really want to avenge that loss. should be a good game.

fixing a weird product design decision with a little hockey tape.

fixing a weird product design decision with a little hockey tape.

i’ve been borrowing odin’s yi action camera to capture 2K video behind the net using a suction cup mount on the glass. works great ( someday i might get around to posting some of the video )!

except someone on the yi product team must not play hockey because there’s an light on power button on the front of the camera that blinks when it’s recording which reflects off the glass and is super annoying in the recorded video.

it’s a curious product design decision since there’s light on the back of camera also blinks when it’s recording. why do you even need a blinking light on the front of the camera? in addition to being annoying, it seems like an unnecessary drain on the battery.

hi. ho. nothing a little hockey tape can’t fix.

target market.

target market. I.

seen while watching odin’s hockey team play a game in la crosse, wisconsin. i’m sure the la crosse parents were wondering why i was taking a picture of the organic fuel marketing on the glass. most of the viroqua parents know i’m a brand manager at organic valley SO I CAN’T HELP MYSELF!

it’s a little less subtle in “real life” but not obnoxiously so :-)

target market. II.

odin is a voracious fuel drinker and i swear i don’t force him to drink it. he doesn’t know anything about refueling after a game, he just loves the taste.

would it be too much if i brought samples to hand out to the la crosse parents at our next game? just kidding. sort of.
