Weekend Update

personal 0 comments suggest edit

Putting the ball in the back of the net in a competitive game of Soccer is one of the most exhilarating feelings around. Why, I think it can feel as good as … well I won’t go there. Suffice to say, it’s a great feeling, even in a city rec league. As long as there are teammates patting you on the back, refs blowing a whistle and a net to capture the shot, it just feels great.

Scoring two in a game, well, that’s even better.

Missing a third great game-winning opportunity, well that almost makes you forget about the first two in frustration. That’s the nature of sport.

My league team that played so dreadfully last season has bounced back this season and we are riding high on an unbeaten streak. We won our last three or four games in a row until this past sunday when we could only pull out a 2-2 tie, both scored by yours truly. Unfortunately, I had a fantastic opportunity to put the game away off a corner kick. I beat the goalie with my header but a defender standing in the goal headed it out just in time. A great defensive play, much to my dismay.

I attribute my personal improvement to taking the entire weekend off from work, which was a welcome and refreshing break. It’s amazing what a full weekend away from the computer (apart from checking emails and reading blogs which don’t count) can do for a person’s sanity. I recommend it.

Last night after the game, we went out to dinner in K-town for some Soon-Dubu (Korean Spicy Tofu Stew). I love Soon-Dubu. The spicier the better. Unfortunately, it has its downsides the day after. For those of you familiar with Korean food, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Let’s just say spicy going in, spicy going out and leave it at that.

    hehe, funny post!

    so you nearly made a hattrick huh.

    hearing you talk about the game made me realise how much i miss it...

    i so recognise the rush you get from scoring a goal, it made me think about my first (and only btw...) scissor-kick goal i've scored once a long long time ago.

    first time a blogentry got me fired up for sports :p

    keep up the good work!

    Well I wasn't going just come out and say it, but yes, that is part of the problem. And I don't know if it's just me, but a slight bit of constipation thrown in. I wonder if that's the Tofu or MSG causing that.
