Injured Reserve

I can't believe this. I've been waiting nine months for the co-ed soccer season to start, and now that it's here, I'm watching from the sideline because of my back. It's better -- much better -- but Pam, my trusted physical therapist, tells me there is no way I'm ready to play soccer. I actually know that, but wish it weren't so. She's given me a half-dozen exercises which I do every day, and which are bringing gradual relief, but I still have Motrin on board 24/7.

I watched my team play last night, which was immensely frustrating. I want to be out there!

I also keep lobbying for a year-round co-ed league. The men's league, women's league and national teams absorb the better players during the rest of the year, but there are plenty of us in the co-ed league that aren't competitive enough for those leagues. We want to be able to play soccer year round too. Come on, NMIFA, let this be the year-round league for the rest of us.

What, did you think you could stop those two local boys up at the top?!?

A year round league would require a Co-ed Co-commissioner. Do you know any interested individuals?

I've got a lot of the stuff set up, emails etc.

Once this league ends, it wouldn't be too difficult to schedule a second one, with pretty much the same teams.

If I get healthy enough to play, I'll consider it. What's the job description?
