Super Soccer Happy Fun Times!!!

Alright, I need to give the Japanese inspired titles a rest.

I was invited to play soccer with a group of guys at American Memorial Park last night. They play every Thursday after work.

Before heading over to American Memorial Park last night, I ran over to Joeten Garapan to get some cleats, socks, and shin guards. I was able to pick up some shin guards for $10 and a pair of socks for $3, but they didn't have any shoes in my size. They told me to try the Joeten in Susupe.

I got to the field a little late and the 25 or so guys were already playing a full pitch game. I put on my new socks and shin guards and they plugged me onto a team. I was on the green jersey/skins team and we were playing against the yellow jersey/Korean team. I'm just a little color blind, so it took me a while to figure out who was wearing yellow and who was wearing green, and that one of the guys wearing a red and white Korean football shirt was actually on our team, and that one of the guys wearing a green shirt was on their team, but it was all good. I had a blast.

To quote an old friend from my undergrad days, let's just say that "soccer is like sex, in that you don't have to be any good at it to have a lot of fun."
