Wheezers and Geezers

Last night was the start of the co-ed summer soccer league practice. It was a blast. I haven't been on a soccer field to play since my medical school days. It felt great to get out and run and have some fun. We have a motley crew of wheezers and geezers.

I had a lot of goofed plays -- missed kicks, wayward passes, slowness. But I did have one huge highlight -- leaving Brad (Mr. CNMI-National-Football-Team-Triathalon-Man) in the dust on one play. I didn't know I had it in me. I'm just thankful he didn't cry.

I think Sami blew by Brad on about 14 occasions that day.

It is so awesome that you are having fun! Let us know when you game is so we can come cheer you on! Do you know the history behind your team name? Did Brad and Angelo ever decide who was guns and who was roses? FUN! How many other bloggers are playing?

No shame in getting dusted by Sami. She's 18!


No clear idea on the name, but it appears that Angelo claims "Roses" and Brad "Guns".

Other bloggers on our team include Bree, EJ, Bev and Walt. That makes seven, with Brad, Angelo and me. Maybe we should be "The Official Team of the Saipan Bloggers."

You guys are going to have so much fun! Before you know it all 25 will be Blogging! I'm going to have to work hard on my blog to represent the Fiesta Pirates! Am I the only blogger playing soccer that isn't on Guns-n-Roses??

...he did cry, on the inside.
