Soccer

I love playing soccer. I haven't played very much since my college days. I try to do something with it in every new place we have moved to. In Grand Junction I coached 10-11 year old girls. That was really fun and a good experience.

Now here at this place I figured there had to be something I could do. So my friend from work knew of a place in scranton that has soccer programs so she gave me the website. I wrote them an email just asking for information and what leagues they have, if they have coed, if they do indoor, when the seasons start, you know basic information questions. Next thing I know I got a call from a guy. He plays on the recreational indoor league and needed a player for his team. He wanted to know if I was interested. I said yes, but as the time got closer to our game I started getting nervous. I knew there were no girls on our team so that was nerve wracking and I had never met anyone. So I show up and play with all boys against all boys. I guess they are men anywhere from 20-40. Slowly I've gotten to know my team more and they are so nice to me and keep wanting me to come back and play. :-) I love it and have so much fun with it. I even scored a goal with my head last night. We play once a week. The season is ending soon though.
It only gets a little interesting when the men get all competitive and a little angry at each other. Then I just lay low and play my game without talkign to anyone. Its so much fun.

All this to say, I've learned that even when I'm very hesitant to do things because I don't know people or I'm scared, I need to just do it because in the end I'm always glad I did.
