My Birthday Wish

I wished with all my heart and with all the cartilage in my knees that today would be the day that I put in a goal. I mean, how perfect would it be to score a goal on my birthday? Especially since it has now been 20 years since the last time I scored in an official game. I played so hard. But it was not to be. Instead of a goal I got yellow card (a pretty bad call, in my opinion) and a slightly strained, possibly torn LCL.

The game was fun though. We were down two players and the other team had like ten substitutes, so all in all a 1-nil loss was not too bad. I had a great time because I got to play mid-field the entire game, and I was so goal-crazy that I never ran out of energy. Plus I played extra-aggressive which was fun because, well, totally taking dudes out with a sweet slide tackle or shoulder-charge is, well, fun.

I think next weekend is the last game of the season. There is some kind of tournament that we are supposed to take part in, but the league is so disorganized, it seems, that the details on it are still unclear…
