It is FALL, and soccer is a FALL sport. At least that is the way it used to be. Now, it is an all year sport of you play on both a school and club team. Getting ready to visit colleges with Kyle, and soccer is a consideration. My middle guy may play NCAA College soccer.
After work, I go to pick up Luke from soccer practice. Sue is at Kyle's soccer game out east. I decide on home made tacos for dinner. A quick stop at Lombardi market for the best chopped sirloin in the planet, and a small block of boars head cheddar (so I can fresh shred it).
Kyle comes home in a good mood, I already know that his team took a win 3-1 today. We teach our children that "it;s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game". That statement is true as sportsmanship, teamwork, and such should make the sport enjoyable. Is soccer supposed to be fun ? Anyway, winning makes them happy, losing, well, you know...sucks.
This day in history "Pablo Picasso, one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th
century, is born in Malaga, Spain.
Picasso's father was a professor of drawing, and he bred his son for a career
in academic art. Picasso had his first exhibit at age 13 and later quit art
school so he could experiment full-time with modern art styles. He went to Paris
for the first time in 1900, and in 1901 was given an exhibition at a gallery on
Paris' rue Lafitte, a street known for its prestigious art galleries. The
precocious 19-year-old Spaniard was at the time a relative unknown outside
Barcelona, but he had already produced hundreds of paintings. Winning favorable
reviews, he stayed in Paris for the rest of the year and later returned to the
city to settle permanently."
They play a lot of soccer in Spain...actually it's called football over there.
Luke is logged in while we are eating dinner...he heated up some leftover ziti from the soccer party. Hey Luke...what are you doing. Oh, I am trading a player on FIFA... That's soccer in case you were guessing.
A quick bite and we are on the road to Deer Park for club team soccer practice. Kyle writes a report on the ride there. I have a long talk with Kyle's coach about recruiting and colleges, and D1, D2, and D3 soccer.
Home at 10pm...a long day for me. A longer day for Kyle. Tomorrow, we do it all over again. Only this time, it is only Luke with a school game (almost like having a day off).

I would normally run when there is an hour or more to wait at the field during practice but I am still sidelined with hip pain. Really want to work on that magic number.
