I used to had a prejustice on soccer, somehow I always thought soccer is not fun, just a whole bunch of guys chasing the ball. I think it’s partly due to the bad experience I had back in Lasalle. When I was young, I can’t run and I don’t have any training on soccer skills. When I played soccer in P.E. lesson, I end up not having much action. Tonight I played a soccer game with friends the first timeafter so many years, and I found I actually like it. I think partly it is because this time it’s an indoor game and we have plenty of subsitute players, so I don’t have to run that hard. Most players are inexperience, I’m not the worst one. There some other players about my level. The biggest difference is I treated the game differently. Now when I am getting old, all I want is just some excerise that I can run around and sweat alot. Getting control of the ball and score goals is no longer my focus. Even I got the ball, I’ll probably lose it if I try to push in myself. So I just have some fun, ran up and down, while trying to block the attack of other team. I think I like the feeling of stealing the ball from other players. I know I’m not the type who can score and be the hero of the team. Playing middle field defense, pass the ball to the front and occationally get a kick on rebounce suits me. I’m going to buy a pair of soccer shoes and socks for the next game. I think Pat would say I’m become more manly after playing soccer.
