Ringers

Elle’s soccer game on Saturday was a tough one. One of our girls scored in the first quarter, and then our defense held through the game to give us a 1-0 victory. And although we won, I was upset when I overheard parents on the other team discussing the ‘ringers’ on their team. Evidently a few of their regular girls couldn’t make the game, so their coach called over to the local soccer club and got some more. I can’t believe that at this age level, when stats don’t matter and there are no playoffs, that a coach would do that. But, it felt good that our ‘rec league’ girls really put it to this other team.

Sunday, Elle and I had more fun with soccer and went to the FC Dallas game with her team. The girls got to go down on the field again and got to line up outside the player tunnel. They were even briefly up on the big screen. The home team won 3-1 and there were some exciting set ups and shots on goal. Watching these guys and their footwork is just amazing.

Tonight is supposed to be Elle’s last soccer game of the season. It’s also supposed to thunderstorm and be severe weather tonight. This is the soccer season that will just not end. Our first game was back on Feb 10. Reschedules, rainouts and spring break have made this season excruciatingly long.

Other events this weekend:
Zed went to Six Flags and lost his wallet. It was found, but I don’t know if we’ll get it back unless they’ll mail it. We’re not driving out there to get $13 from a $10 wallet.

Elle went to my knitting group with me. She was very good for two hours, alternating between playing her Gameboy and learning to knit.

Went to dinner with my family for my brother and niece’s birthdays. Father and daughter have birthdays 2 days apart.

Didn’t get anything on my ‘list’ accomplished. What else is new?

  3. That does seem a bit much to bring in ringers. For cripes sake, can’t kids just have fun for the sake of having fun anymore? Good for the girls winning though.

    PS: Do you know anybody that gets anything done on their lists? I don’t. 😉

  4. People are so crazy when it comes to sports. I can’t even believe it. Good for Elle’s team anyway. I am becoming quite the soccer fan though. Let me tell you, that sport has way more action than the baseball games.

  6. You are one very busy woman…
    Hope the wallet is mailed back!

  7. Accomplishments are overrated when compared to fun with the brats.

  8. I can totally relate, Lass.
    My daughters play soccer as well and we’re constantly bombarded with the ‘Hamlett’ players and all the bullshit associated with the ‘clique’.
    “Oh, your daughter doesn’t play Hamletts?”
    To that parent I say, “Bite me.”

  9. Gameboy and knitting — that’s funny!

  10. That is ridiculous about the ringers! Talk about using sports to send all the wrong message to young kids!

  11. well, it could have been that if they did not have players the game would have had to be forfeited. Maybe?

  12. That is really weird, about the ringers. Why would they do that?

    It sounds like the knitting group went really well. 2 hours is a long time for a non-knitter to put up with knitting folk 😉
