Mid-30s Guy Plays First Game of Organized Soccer - True Story!


I am 35-years old and I've just played my first game of organized soccer.  I kid you not.

As I've watched both my kids playing on soccer teams, I've become rather fascinated with this fact.  My brothers both played as kids, but I was somehow never enrolled.  My summer sport was baseball.

Tonight, during the final practise of the season, an exhibition game took place between my son's under 8 team and the parents.  I played the wing and scored a goal in a hard fought 3-3 tie. I had a blast.

An incredible streak has come to an end.
