Just Give me Advil, please!

There is a reason when you are 43 years old that you shouldn't play soccer against your daughter's team. I can actually name more than one reason.....
1. We (the adults) are all limping
2. The adults are wheezing (and it has been 2 hours since we finished)
3. 10 year old girls should not be allowed to run that fast
4. I scored! But then had to be given oxygen...
5. The company that makes Advil would not be able to keep up with the demand.
6. Laughing that hard for that long will take years off your life
7. They cheat ( did we)
8. They schooled us more times than I care to count
(But we won!!!)

It was worth the hugs and the dinner afterward. Now if I could just straighten my back and get out of this chair.....but I have to remove the ice from a really bad cleating first.

9. The despair and panic you will feel when the 10 year olds ask how about two out of three?

10. 40 somethings should know better!
