Tonight will mark the debut of myself, and other contributors on this blog in our first soccer game in 15 years. That's right we are attempting to come out of retirement and the expectations are very low. The last time we all played soccer was when Roberto Baggio blew it for Italy in the World Cup. So we all know that no one will be doing any damage tonight, but if anything else it should be a treat to watch us fools running around out there, and possibly barfing all over the field.
One contributor to the blog emailed me today and was wondering what I was having for dinner tonight before the game, because he will be eating snow crabs. Well if I know one thing, its to not eat snow crabs before you go play soccer. Another contributor, Moose, will be out there for one thing only, and that's to take cheap shots at the other team. He once slide tackled someone on a basketball court, in an organized league, so I a can only imagine what he will do on a soccer field. He was heard by an unknown source screaming in the woods last week "Guats" at the top of his lungs, so he seems ready to get dirty. The one non contributor to the blog that refuses to go on because he doesn't have an opinion and goes by what the analysts say, thinks he is Pele. The guy hasn't played soccer since 1995, and told the guy at Soccer Post that the only reason he quit the sport was because we made fun of him for playing soccer. Our goalie still doesn't know that he will be the goalie. He thinks that he will be playing the field, but since he was a goalie in high school he has no choice. I heard that he is going to refuse to play goalie. This is gonna be a cluster you know what. For myself, I can only hope that the other teams suck because I am not very good. I haven't touched a soccer since I kicked it out of Doc's hands for the game winning goal in 1992 in intramural soccer. Let's put it this way, we all suck, and we think that we are going to be good, and I have no clue why. Its gonna be a total let down from a self confidence perspective when the other team runs circles around us while we are all throwing up on the field. So if you need a few laughs we will be playing at 9:06 tonight at Xtreme Sports in Hatboro.
