I haven't mentioned the fall soccer season at all. And it's not just because I haven't blogged lately. It was a sucky season.
Scooter got onto a pretty nice team, but I hardly saw any of his games, because Guido made me take Fluffy to her games whenever there was a time conflict, which was nearly every weekend.
Fluffy's team sucked big time. Talk about unbalanced teams again. While one team was full of select and club players, our team had four girls who had never even played AYSO before. But they were an amazing bunch of girls (and parents) who faithfully attended practice and every game. Toward the end of the season, we actually won a couple of games, although it wasn't enough to get us out of last place. Even though this was Fluffy's worst season in terms of wins & losses, it was her best season. She had fun, met all new girls (she was the only one from her school), and she's turned into a great defender, too.
So why was today the worst day ever? Because although Scooter's team made it to the playoffs and even advance to the final round, we had such ugly encounters with an opposing team and even worse officiating, that our team has called it quits. There is a possiblity that we could take first place tomorrow and instead we are sitting out. Today was possibly Scooter's last soccer game ever. He scored two goals in the second quarter and I missed it. For years I've asked Guido to set me up with the camcorder to record Scooter's games and he's refused. I may never see Scooter play soccer again.
