Thank you Larry. Let the games begin. Any week one predictions?
I predict that a multitude of overweight parents who never played soccer a day in their lives will attempt to predict the outcomes of games over which they have absolutely no control.
I also predict that they will refer to their children's teams using 1st person plural pronouns in order to create the illusion, at least in their own minds, that they are the ones on the field.
Last, I predict that, in the week following the games, the aforementioned parents will post, anonymously, incendiary remarks about the teams who are, at least at this point in their development, more skilled than the teams on which their children play and the coaches who have selflessly volunteered thousands of hours over the years to help get the boys there...
But seriously, best of luck to all the kids.. may they stay healthy and injury-free... and best of luck to the parents who relate to what I'm saying... let's lead by example on the sidelines.
