Had No Idea What Soccer Was

artisanal 'ette: "I'm watching soccer. I'm good. I actually really do like the sport. I know everyone here at Ace does not, but it's fun to watch."

I had no idea what soccer was when I got to HS, but I played it for three years, ending up co-captain of the B squad, which was pretty good for me, since I started out a flabby, pathetic last-guy-chosen type. And since most of the players were off-season football guys, we didn't play like fancy Europeans but like clunky Americans. Some good memories, despite the agonies.

And if the coach had just put one of my B team guys in for fullback after Tom got that concussion, we might have taken the tournament that last year! But I don't carry that around with me or anything.
