We're 1-0!

One of the items on my list of things to do in life has been to play soccer in a league. I haven't played an organized team sport since I was in high school (and that was orienteering, the kind of sport where you get a letter but get made fun of if you have the temerity to sew it on your jacket).

I finally joined the Triangle Adult Soccer League for their coed summer session and my team, the Defenders, had its first game tonight. We won, 3-1! What a nice way to start my soccer playing days.

Early on in the game, I happened to be in the right place at the right time and came this close to scoring the first goal. My shot went just over the net. It was luck, because after that, my lack of experience showed. I know I have a lot to learn. But what fun!

Why didn't I do this a long time ago?
