…we may have lost, but we laughed a lot. What else can you do when half your team is a no-show? Season 1 starts next Friday.
Just registered for Kingdom Indoor Center’s Co-ed Pre-season Friday night league. Super excited to return to my favorite local indoor facility!
Last indoor soccer match of the summer season, and once again our ragged little 30+ coed house team faced off against a bunch of 20-something-ball-hoarding-semi-pros. Usually our team uses its time on the pitch to recklessly chase after the ball but today we tried something different.
Today – we played with HEART.
For the first time we actually heard each other, looked for our teammates, and [for the most part] stuck with our defensive marks. We fearlessly challenged their best players, managed more than a few flawless assists, and scored FIVE fist-bumping, chest-puffing, war-whooping goals. Instead of feeling exhausted and disappointed at the double whistle, we just grinned through the sweat.
Best. Season End. Ever.
Side note: as per last game tradition, I managed to deflect a good solid kick off my inner right leg – this time my calf instead of my knee. Bruise formed immediately and
hurts like hell doesn’t hurt at all; you can barely even see it.
