Since it was after 4:00 pm, the dome wasn't quite light enough for pictures, but I did snap a few. Brian and his two buddies had showed up for the game...but the rest of the team didn't even show! They did pick up some spare players, the game counted as a loss but not a forfeit and at least the ones that were there got to play.
Brian still wasn't feeling very well, so he opted to play goalie since he wouldn't have to run around as much. Nice Save! He had his jeans on because he really wasn't planning on playing. He hasn't played goalie for a really long time. He made some nice saves, but the other team made some nice shots and scored quite a few times. It ended up being a lop-sided game.
He was OK with that. It was fun to see Brian punt the ball. Can you tell that he's just a little bit double jointed?
It's been nice to see Brian picking up soccer again. He played for a few years when he was really little....wasn't he cute? So serious! He was about 5 in this picture. How did he get so tall in 11 short years? After a few years he decided that it just wasn't for him.
Then he started playing again with his buddies last fall. One of the nicest parts about him playing again is that they seem to have so much fun with it. See that smile? That warms my heart every time I see it....no matter what he's doing.
