Once again, the summer soccer league has started. Sista's in Soccer is a ladies rec league that I joined last year, and had so much fun, joined again this year.
For those of you who know me, I know, it is shocking that I would join an organized sport. Actually, it's shocking that I would get off the couch...hahaha!! For those of you who don't know me, well, I think you just figured it out~this kid is pretty lazy.
Last year, I say with my head bowed, our team came in last place. I think it's kind of funny. I am not a particularly competitive person, so I was just playing for fun. I recognized that I was not a superstar, rather, an out of shape 20-something woman who was giggling on the field. We scored one goal the entire season, and it was during our last game in the play-offs. Yes, all teams made it to the play-offs; it's a non-competitive league, and fair is fair. We let out such a whoop and holler when we did score that I am sure the other team thought we were jerks, surely not realizing that it was our first and only goal. Oh well. Mind you, in our defence, half of our teammates bailed shortly into the season, and we were left many games with only one or two subs, while the opposing team had a full rotation. I think we turned green with envy. Well, I turned green because I thought I was going to puke from all the running. But we'll pretend it was envy or something.
We had our first game of the season this past Sunday. We have several ladies from last year on the team again (aka, those who didn't bail out), and lots of new ones. I'm pleased to announce that we lost the first game 2-0 (because last year we lost 12-0 at the first game....we've had a change in goalies, thank heavens). And now that my legs are aching, my back is a little stiff, I can't wait for practise tonight, and next Sunday's game. I can feel it, we are going to score 2 goals this year.
