Summer is a soccer wasteland!

I never knew summer was downtime for soccer! Argh!

Around here, youth soccer is only played in the spring and summer,  so that leaves me with nothing to do except wait. Blah!

There are some adult league games, but apparently, my assignor doesn’t think I’m good enough or experienced enough to ref those games, so whatever.

I did enjoy the USA vs. Brazil Confederations Cup final — right up to the second half, when it all went to hell. My friends and I watched it at a local Irish bar, which was great fun because people were excited about the game. Whenever USA would score, we all went crazy, hugged, high-fived, etc. In the second half, when Brazil suddenly came alive and USA went straight to the crapper, we drowned our sorrows. (Well, I didn’t because I’m broke — no games to ref — and I was headed to the gym afterward, but whatever.

I’m saying “whatever” a lot today. I’m just in that kind of mood.

I do, however, want to marry and have babies with Tim Howard, the USA goalie. His goal-stopping ability is downright sexy!

But there was one controversial non-goal that the refs thought he stopped but he didn’t.  Howard hit the ball, it bounced on the crossbar then bounced out. But Howard (and the ball) were well inside the goal, which should have given Brazil a point. I imagine those refs got a good talking-to after that game.  If USA would have won by only one goal, the Brazilians would have gone completely nuts, and they’d be right.

As for marrying Howard,  I’m too late (not to mention too old, ahem) because he’s already married. Whatever.
