The outdoor co-ed rec soccer league started up this evening with a 4-2 victory that came after the sunlight had all but faded entirely. I had a sloppy, bull-in-the-china-shop sort of goal and a fairly good assist. Bret, who joined us at my behest since we were short guys, scored a nice 25-30 yarder. Dennis, out with a meniscus tear, hung out and cheered everybody on, something that was probably harder than it sounds since we played pretty poorly in general.

Ah well, a win is a win, and the good thing about competition is that it lets you know just how much work you need to do. In my case, it’s a lot.
