Been awhile since we had a fan post so I thought I'd try something a little different. We've got a few regular commenters here, it's been the best season for our team in years so... yeah. Who are we? I'll start.

Best Soccer Story: A summer college class, I'm the oldest guy there and I'm in goal. I was (and am) very much a novice player and some guy is screaming, "look at the grandpa in goal! Look at grandpa!" I was 40 at the time (48 now). So I'm thinking, okay, I teach my kids non-violence but I decide I'm not going to entirely practice what I preach. He's coming hard toward goal, calling out "Grandpa! Grandpa!" every few strides. He's a good player but I left goal at just the right time, scooped up the ball and at the same time put my shoulder into his solar plexus. I had never, to that point, knocked the wind out of anyone even on accident. I'm almost ashamed to admit how good it felt to do it on purpose.
