We LOVE soccer!

Saturday, March 10, 2018
Our family loves soccer. Ok, we like soccer...or we enjoy watching in good weather and know some of the rules. I still don't get off sides though. I made the mistake of asking one of the high school kids what it meant to be called off sides. It was something like this.
Me: Ok, what is off sides in soccer?
Kid: well, it's a tricky one.
Me:Try me. I know ALL about basketball and football and mostly about baseball.
Kid: We, you have to be very careful who plays ahead of the opposing player. It has to do with unfair advantage....blah, blah, blah.
Me: Can you start over and relate it to a sport I know something about?
Kid: (looks at me like I'm an idiot), okay, well, it is a tricky call...it...
Me: Never mind.
My baby boy loves soccer though, no other way to say it. He LOVES soccer. He's a good player and actually wishes they have practice every day. At least this early in the season!
He's played for several years now but we are barely closer to understanding exactly how things are supposed to go. 
I DO know about HAT TRICKS though. That's THREE goals in one game for you beginners.
