Vive le Bleu!

The fall season for indoor started last night. I’m playing on the same team as last year. The brilliantly named. The Blue Team

We had our first game last night. We won 10-2! It could have been a lot worse too. We kind of let up in the second half. Hopefully we’re on our way to another championship!!

Viva la Bleu!

Last night my indoor team, The Blue Team(I know very original) tied. I scored a penalty shot goal. It was actually a surprise penalty kick… I stole the ball from a defender and it bounced ahead of me towards their goal, so I chased it down… with another guy at my heals. I beat him to the ball, then tried to shield ball and I think on my second touch the other guy wiped me out. It was a clear goal scoring opportunity. It should have been a card really, but the ref gave us a penalty shot. I was as shocked as the other team, but I wasn’t going to miss a great opportunity. I took the shot and made sure I didn’t miss the free goal we given. 😉 That put us up 2-1. Then in the last minute they tied it up…

The most exciting thing though, is that we are in the championship game next week! We are in first place with 5 wins, 1 loss and 1 tie. I’ve been playing in this league for over a year now. The sessions last about 8 weeks including a championship game. Our team has never been in the championship game before. 😉 Some of the guys have been playing for years and never made it. So, now’s our chance to get our hands on the championship t-shirt! 🙂

Viva la Bleu!

This is the first day of the rest of your life…

Many of you already know that I’m no longer with CSB-System. My last day was last Thursday.

Thursday night I had an indoor game where I scored a goal and had a few assists. One of the comments was that I was much more relaxed and played better than I have in a while. Go figure..

So, what am I doing now. Well, I’m still working part-time for Google. I’m going to start doing some translation and now I’ll have time to build my business. Blackbird e-Solutions I’m going to revamp the business to focus on Localization for websites and other materials, and Technical Consulting for German companies that want to establish a presence in the USA. So, it’s really an excite time.

Ugh, Boy did we stink tonight….

Wow! what a frustrating night. We lost 9-2.

On the positive side I scored both goals. 🙂 The the ball was passed to me right in front of the goal and I took the shot between the keeper and a defender. The second one of the other guys did all the work. The goalie tried to stop him and the ball rolled front of the goal and I just tapped it in.

I definitely made my share of mistakes too though. Towards the end we could have had another goal. We had a 3 on 2, but I held the ball way too long and lost it. Blah!

Red Rose League

We had another game tonight at Red Rose.
This is the first time I’m played over 30’s there. The game is very different because you can play off the walls. But, it is also very different because the refs are not real refs, and they don’t call anything. I had a break away tonight and some guy took me out from behind. Anywhere else it would have been a yellow card. I barely even got a call. Since they don’t call anything the game got really rough. We lost at least one player to injury too. And towards the end of the game our goalie got kicked in the face, and was bleeding. The guy reffing kept saying he definitely didn’t get kicked. Come one he was bleeding!

Anyway, we tied. We could have won but the other team scored in the last 30 seconds. It ended up to be 5-5. I had 3 goals though! So far we have lost 2 games and tied 1. The next game we should win at this rate!
