Soccer Princess

After a trying game of soccer what do you do?
BBQ!
Chef Bradgelo has taken the liberty to start a fire and cook some delicious wieners on the sidelines. A free beer comes with it if your team loses and you show your poutiest face. Roxy will push you if you take one with a victory smile. These are some of the special things that happen only in Saipan.
Today the Women’s all star played a tremendous game against the men’s team from Hong Kong and Guam. Rule is: ask how the game was not what the score was. I only saw the 2nd half of the 2nd game so I got an earful of “priority speeches” from Lovelle. To make up for it I shall present this entry as a peace offering.
Lovelle, aka: ‘Lion on the field’ by Saipan soccer players and soccer fans. To me she is known as the unbearable sister who makes me look awful on the field. I’m naturally clumsy, that’s a given, but playing on the same team with the soccer pinay princess does not add points to my attempts to be coordinated. On the other hand, the slight facial similarity does give other people a reason to think that I’m good too. Congratulations today little sis you showed ‘em where you truly belong. Now all you have to do is to stop taking my ice cream after you’ve eaten yours!

Great job Lovelle!!! Kathy...you are ready to go out for some of these teams too! Don't underestimate yourself! Most of these women have been playing longer than one season. You have already improved a ton (you know I think you're a natural). By going out for these teams and truly being present in both spirit and body you will keep on improving. I loved playing with you on Smith's Sonic Booms! Your positive attitude, determination, teamwork and dedication were very inspirational!! I hope to be on your team again soon!

I'm really impressed by our teams willingness to put their heads on the ball. I was afraid to do that as recently as last week.
