Six-thirty Soccer

Soccer

Are US citizens taking soccer more seriously these days?  David Beckham gets paid millions for playing for the LA Galaxy, the US mens national team almost won the Gold Cup in July, and locally we gathered publicly for the US versus Mexico World Cup qualifying match.  Our teams are not exactly winning, but they are doing better than they ever have in the past.  Soccer is a great sport to watch and even more fun to play.  Game play is fast paced and each shot on goal is gut wrenching.  One tiny mistake or one lucky tap of the ball will change the course of the whole game.  Games are often won by only a point or two difference in each team’s score.   We play on Johnson Field at 6:30, Tuesday and Thursday.

And now, a video:

It’s Vic Henley discussing soccer in Europe.  Hilarious!
