I just fixed the handle on my toilet, which fortunately was only about $6, but now I'm taking my car in on Tues. to get the brakes checked - and if they need to be replaced that could end up being as much as $550...
I learned to play as a kid in Germany. Primarily a fullback and goalie.
The last time I played was in college intermurals. I helped my all-freshman team almost make school history when we scared The Internationals twice in one season- they hadn’t lost a game in 11 years, with an average margin of victory in that period of over 2 points. We played them tough, losing first in the regular season (1-0) and the second time in the championship game in a PK shootout. I played left or center FB.
Possibly my best (and worst) on-field performance, though, came when I was the goalie on a VERY bad team of theater, choir, band and gaming nerds playing a team loaded with jocks. In the entire game, we never advanced the ball more than a few feet past midfield. I stopped 45 of 46 shots on goal. The one that got past me was a weak dribbling pass to nobody with a minute left. I was going to just stop and hold it, but as I ran to it, I saw our right wing running full speed and uncovered upfield, so I decided to hammer it to him...
...only to have the turf under my plant foot give way, causing me to backflip as the ball passed under me untouched. I recovered quickly and tried to chase down the slow-roller, but it crossed the goal line while I was still a couple yards away,
Started at age 8. Played every year from 2nd grade to senior. Played as a class twice in college- (indoor and regular) then two years in men's league after college. Mix in a lot of indoor and messing around with friends. In that 10 years in school Arlington won at least 5 State Championships.... maybe more.
Kelsey Grammar has been filming a movie in my county. While not his biggest fan I'd like to catch a glimpse of a celebrity. The movie is a indie flick about soccer. He's a former soccer star managing a team with his sons as players. At some point one son is cut and joins a rival team to take on his father and brother.
