You know, of course, that Soccer Son plays soccer. And I think the last time I talked about his soccer endeavors, he was playing for a local professional arena (indoor) soccer team, the Sacramento Surge. Well, that lasted for a couple of months and he became dissatisfied with the way things were going--this was a new expansion team and it just wasn't what he expected when he joined. Around that time, he was invited to join a team that was part of the same overall national soccer organization but at a semi-pro (premiere) level. Joining that team meant he would have to travel some distance to and from games and practices, but he liked the team and was offered a modest compensation package that made joining a little more attractive to him than remaining a part of the other team.
That's him on the ground in black. I don't know how he did personally yet as far as goals, etc.; I'll have to wait until he gets back to town to find out. When Hubby and I talked to him on the phone after we saw the trophy pose on his Facebook page, the professional championship game had just ended, and the San Diego Sockers took that win, so you can imagine how loud it was in the Valley View Casino Center. Hard to really talk. But isn't it nice when we see our kids do well in something they love? Congratulations Bladium Rosal and Pat Powers! Woo-hoo!
