One "Special" Soccer Team

So, today I finally broke down and went to check out this whole soccer business firsthand.

I think their team really has a good chance at winning....












....if they play against the Special Olympics Kids' league.
(and even then it'd be close.)

Two of our goalies left the box and were caught racing across the field with the rest of the team. At least two goals were made against our team BY our team. I can't even count how many times our team drove the ball down the field towards the wrong goal, so that the other team could steal the ball and score.

I just stood on the sidelines and LOL. Real loud.

We better keep contributing to the college fund. I'm not seeing an athletic scholarship in our future.

Hahahahaha! Poor kids! And you were worried what a couple of pictures in a christmas card were going to do for the self esteem!

Just kidding!!

Seriously though, that was like my softball team....I think in the last two games of the season almost all of us had finally hit the ball. A few of us even caught them!

Ah, yes, soccer for the youth.

I find adult beverages disguised in pop bottles helps pass the time.

Hey! My sister plays soccer for the Special Olympics and she is awesome! She kicks ass.

I bet it is cute as hell to watch though. If he pulls his shorts up really high, even better ;)

I experienced this hilarious torture all fall. What a treat. I'm definitely going to partake of a disguised adult beverage next season after I pop out this kid.

LOL too funny! When my daughter was playing t ball she ended up taking all the laces out of her glove (in the outfield) by the end of the season lol.

That's what's so fun about soccer at this age! All you can do is bring the video camera and pray that you don't shake too much from laughing while you're filming the game. The video will be priceless one day. Trust me!
