Sunday Afternoon Soccer
"Anonymous" asked about Sunday afternoon soccer, so this is a perfect chance to talk up my latest soccer exploits. But first of all, we're playing in St. Marys at Geiger Park from 3-5 these days.
This past week I was the master of the poached goal (but, as I said, in soccer, unlike big game hunting, poaching is encouraged). The first one I got was a rebound; the original shot was low to the keeper's left and he parried it straight to me, so I put it low between him and the post. The second was a huge defensive error: the defender had the ball to my left and was being chased by a forward. Defender passed across his goal mouth about 20 yards out... straight to where I was running. I hit a first time strike to the keeper's right. Finally, I was frankly waiting for a good chance to take a water break, so I had drifted to the left side of the field. I noticed that we had the ball, so I meandered my way to the back post right in time for the ball to squeak through to me. hehehe
If you had me for your fantasy team, I had 5 shots, 4 on goal, 3 goals, and no fouls or cards. So now that I've bored you with my pick-up game stats, I'll just be content to wonder who "anonymous" is.
