Thoughts on Soccer

DSC01474 DSC01455
I've decided that little kids' soccer is much more interesting to watch than real soccer. There are no goalies, and none of the kids know how to stop the ball from getting in the goal. So somebody scores every few minutes.

Most of the kids don't have a clue about how to play the game. They just know that you're supposed to kick the ball away from everyone else and into the goal. Carter and his friend Cole (pictured above) are on the same team, but they spend most of their time kicking the ball away from each other.

Of course, there's the kindergarten drama to add even more chuckles. Crying is pretty common. Pushing, grabbing, and kicking each other. All a part of the game. I think I'll be a little sad when they get better and figure out how to be real soccer players. The games won't be nearly as much fun to watch.

I remember watching my stepsister's little boy play when they were about 4 years old...when they got tired they'd sit down and play with the blades of grass! That's funny that those two, although on the same team, try so hard to get the ball away from one another!!
