I Hate Soccer

Actually, I hate all sports. And not for any other reason than I just don't get them.

But I sit here in a rapidly cooling field (thankfully with a wireless laptop. Have I ever mentioned that I love the wireless laptop? Have I ever mentioned how much? Never mind, I'll spare you) I am highly encouraged by the intensity and energy and extreme sportsmanship of these kids. The parents are actually pretty cool so far too. [That might just be wishful thinking on my part, as I have been named the RL or Ref's Liason for this game. I'm supposed to get thing under control should a parent start "throwing chairs onto the field" - coach's words. I said "what if it's me?" He didn't have an answer. Note to self: Don't throw chairs on the field.]

  1. Were you toting a flask along with your wireless latop? Cuz then it would have been perfect.

  2. i wonder how inappropriate it would be if you wore one of those double-beer-holder hats (including beers) with the straws that run from the beer cans right to your mouth (who invented that? he rocks), while sporting a black and white striped ref's shirt with the word "Liaison" written on back using fluorescent masking tape.
