After reluctantly putting on my pink soccer jersey Saturday morning, I might have just played my best soccer game yet. I don't know how our team got stuck with the pink jerseys. I wait until the last moment to put it on and then at the end of the game I quickly switch into a regular t-shirt. Funny, but true, yes I know I am wierd. Hopefully the pink jerseys won't bother me as much soon. So onto the game...

My teammate took the ball down the right side lines and I was running forward from about the half-line... my teammate put in an early cross that was just in my range and reach and from about 20 to 25 yards out I dove for it! My diving header shot flew swiftly towards the net passed the outstretched goalie into the upper left corner of the net... GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!!!! It was 1-0.

The other team struck back quick and only about 1 minute later they took their kick off, made a couple of good passes and after a few good bounces and a solid shot they scored. 1-1.

Later,after being robbed by their keeper of a shot that I thought was going in the upper right corner, I managed to break through the defense and score 2 more goals. Hat tricks are nice. My teammate Ignacio Cervantes added a goal and we won 4-1.

It was just one of those games where I was on. My touch was there and it felt good. The league I'm playing in now is not the level of competitive play that I grew up playing on my club teams but with real goals, refs, and uniforms I have a great time playing getting some excersize and putting my 20+ years of soccer training o the test.

I think everyone does everything better when they figure out how to use the Right and Left side of their brain at the same time. I haven't figured out how to do it consistently yet but instinctively I think we use more of our brain than normal by accident. It's almost like using the "Force" That's the best way I can think of to describe it. The old saying "we only use 10% of our brain" is probably pretty true most of the time so if we can all figure out how to tap in to that extra 90% there's no telling what we might be able to do.

Thanks for checking in, can't wait to watch the CHARGERS take on the COLTS tonight...
I think the Chargers have a slim chance of pulling it off...we shall see...

Oh yeah, for those of you who know me well,(you know my first band insomnia). We are re-releasing our insomnia album called "BOB" with 15 songs. Funny when it was first released we only had tapes! This will be the first time we can all listen to it on cd...funny. We signed the rights away for 10 years to this woman to try to get a major record deal when we were 17 and that contract has finally expired! We can now make insomnia BOB available on our own terms once again so e-mail me if you're interested in getting a copy of our first band that we started at the beginning of highschool.

good times.
