Following on last week’s dismal soccer performance, tonight’s showing upped it to mediocre, with the unfortunate inclusion of missing a woulda been game-winning volley in front of the net. Sometimes it sucks to me.

It’s funny: Last week I play dreadfully and score two goals. This week I raise my play to mediocre and get two assists (in a 2-2 tie) but miss the gimme winning goal. At this rate I’ll play brilliantly next week and score an own goal.

Anyway, the miss gnaws. I usually play well enough on the field that I don’t embarrass myself. This comes close. We should have won, and I should have won it. I hate that.
