we played that year with circus tents in the background – seemed fitting

More of Eric’s technique, this time demonstrating how soccer is really a dance, really a tango

But now I am completely confused – what is Eric doing?

Man Down! This was the year I was at 50% or less throughout the entire triathlon

Every year on the Wednesday before the triahtlon, The Commissioner reviews the Book. And one thing she has consistently changed is the soccer line-ups. So what you see below is a starting point, but don’t get too wedded to it. And bring both blue and white shirts for soccer.

Gary                                                     Shimp
Steve Ball                                           Marshall

“Hey, coach” – 2 – Gotta have a left foot

I keep telling my soccer-playing kids that they have to have a left foot, they have to be able to control the ball and shoot and react and play with their left foot at least almost as well as their right foot. Or maybe not

Makes me want to book tickets to Seattle next spring to see him play.
