One small step for man, one giant leap for womankind

I just finished playing soccer in the neighborhood pick up game!  It was shirts verses skins.  You can imagine which team they tried to force me to play on.  Nice to know, some things are universal.  But despite their best efforts, t-shirt on, barefoot, on a soaking wet grass field, we played 6v6.  Good thing my cousins have me well versed in EVERY foul mouthed, Portuguese, swear word.  I understood everything.  So in short my story...

1. I asked to play soccer
2. I scored two goals in the first 5 minutes
3. I love winning
4. I love doing #2 and #3 when it is against all dudes.  I just schooled them.
5. They asked me if I played professionally in the US. My other favorite question.
6. They invited me to come "teach" them soccer again next Thursday.  I will remember to bring a shirt :)

So once again teaching men around the world, women can play soccer.  And as it seems tonight, better than men...

One small step for man, one giant leap for womankind.  Bring it.


  1. My Dad just asked me if the other team was blind. Always so supportive!! haha :)

  2. #4 says you love doing #2 and #3. I know how to make a "number 2," but I am not familiar with a "number 3?"

    Good job taking the boys to school, the Sounders could use some offense, and some nice to look at players on the "skins" side! :)

    Mariners could use some offense as well. Ask your Dad how he liked the 4.5 hour opening day game.

  3. My Dad loves Baseball. If he was sitting in the sun, I am sure he say the first and last inning between naps.
