October 15th, 2017 — Every once in a while I go out to a park and kick the soccer ball around. It’s good exercise and it’s fun. The downside is that after doing this a couple of times I start thinking about playing the game again, maybe in a plus 60 league. It’s a downside because I forget how serious even 60 year olds take the game such as this defender for the Salt Spring Island Old Boys who first stepped on the foot of an opposing player for the Juan de Fuca 48’s and then kneed his other leg to knock him over and leave him lying on the field. Didn’t even get a yellow card. Juan de Fuca did have their revenge, however, winning by at least eight goals.
