Win some, lose some, hurt some

This past week my hockey team, the West Wind, took part in the Western Japan Roller Hockey Tournament. And unlike last year where we fought and clawed our way to third place, we took a 1-1 tie in to the dying moments of the game , but ended up losing 3-1 in the quarter finals. I scored the lone goal and the welts on my body clearly show the 5 block shots I had, which lead to winning team MVP for the tournament. But winning MVP on a losing team is like kissing your cousin. Try explaining that in Japanese.
