Well It's About Time

I've been playing indoor soccer on Sunday's now for about 8 years...all on the same team. Of course the players have changed here and there, but the biggest change is that we are now the "old guy" team. Don't get me wrong, we've got a couple of whipper-snappers out there...but we've got more guys over 30 then under these days.

That means a couple of things...but mostly it means we run out of gas in the 2nd half and end up losing a lot of games. That sucks.

It's very frustrating and lately we have been on a losing streak to end all streaks. In fact we've lost so many games in a row I almost can't remember what it feels like to win. Hell, it's gotten to the point where I don't even care if we win or lose, I just want us to play well enough to be competitive.

That said, for some reason, all day today I had this feeling we were going to win tonight. And hot damn, would you believe it, we did win...and I scored 2 goals. With next week off because of Easter, that means we're going to carry this new streak...the unbeaten one, through the next 2 weeks.

Can you say "on a roll"?


  1. I named you MVP of the match for your two goals, the 2nd ended up being the difference in the match as we won 4-3. Plus it was a hell of an effort to beat the goalie to the ball and head it in! That was some magic back from when we were the youngin's.

  2. I'm pretty sure I blacked out for that play but I appreciate the love...and the vote for MVP. Now go get healthy so you can run around and get tired with us in the 2nd half.
