Over 30 Men’s soccer game for me up in Vancouver this afternoon. I’m still not fully recovered from my tweaked hamstrings, but I figure that’s why God gave us icy-hot. In the midst of the action, I also pulled a groin muscle and I can tell you from personal experience that you have to be really careful where you slather the icy-hot when that happens. Suffice to say by the end of the game I was fairly hobbled, icy-hot or no.

As for the game itself, well, we only had 11 players so we got kicked. 1-0 at half, but then we gave up three straight in the opening 10 minutes of the second half. 4-0 was the final. I didn’t play badly, but obviously I couldn’t sprint, so that made it tough going. And I’m not sure I was ready for 90 minutes of jogging, though that’s what I ended up doing. We should have five really good players joining the team next week or the week after (they’ve all been in playoffs in another league), and I expect the level of play will rise dramatically after that. Hopefully, I’ll be healed by then too.
