Goooooooooooooooooaaaaallllll!

My wife plays in a rec soccer league with her friends from medical school. Today was the last game of the season, and they only had 8 players. (Apparently, you need 11 to field a soccer team.)

So they found me an extra pair of shoes and gloves, I changed from my jeans into borrowed warm-up pants on the sidelines, and stuck me in goal. I am 24, and I have not played soccer since I was 6. And I played goal maybe once then.

We lost, 5-1. Embarrassing.

How'd it go? And would you have preferred playing the field and having to run around?
