The mom's (not-so-novice-anymore) soccer teams competed in the Show-Me-State Games again this year. Although I have not played for the last 6 months, Julie convinced me to come out... they were desperate for a goalie and I just wanted a medal;)
Teams were divided, and I have to say, the division was sooo not fair. Most of my team (in pink) consisted of women over the age of 35. The other team (in blue) was made up mostly of girlies in their 20s who had previous soccer experience.
Don't know how we did it (must have been divine intervention), but we tied those brutes. The final score was 1-1. I think everyone was pretty shocked! I know that I had envisioned a 10-0 game. But, the Soccer God's were smiling upon us, and everybody went home with a medal.
I was a little irritated at the other coach. He told his girls not to get near me or I would kick them. Can I help it if I don't have any control over my body? I am 37 years old...
See how tired Julie looks here??? This is because she's A LOT older than I am!
Actually, Julie is in terrific shape. Me, on the other hand, am not...hence the reason I stayed in the goal.
How can Julie manage to still look so cute after all that running around??? Disgusting, isn't it???
Small penny with XL shirt...so not attractive!
Remember how I have refused to ever be photographed in a wetsuit (I'm not linking that post either) again??? Well, the same goes for the kids soccer penny. It so does nothing for my hips...except make them look huge:o
