Tonight was our first soccer game. We won 1-0. I’ve never played soccer in my life and was the goalie.
Now I’ll explain why the hell Ana and I (and Jay, with Katherine joining next week) ended up on an indoor soccer field. At my work a group of people have been fielding a team for a few years now. They play at the local indoor soccer facility against other people who don’t play soccer professionally – think along the lines of intramural sports. Three of these guys sit around me at work and suckered me into playing this year with them. I’ve turned them down repeatedly since I’ve never once kicked a soccer ball, let alone play a game. So now the four of us (Ana, Jay, Katherine, and I) will be playing soccer for the next month and a half.
