Thanks to co-worker and soccer advocate Bob Wickwire for moderating…wish I could have been there but I am out of town right now.
So the coach is taking little shots at me with this crossbar challenge I see? Thanks to those who emailed me the question (from Chris) and answer. Read it all here.
I thought it was funny, and I’m honored that someone even thought of me and he mentioned my name. And he’s right, yeah, you’d pretty much have to tip that thing over for me to hit it. I’m judging this based on my play in rec league, where I can only assume I lead the league in one category – fouls committed.
I actually did try to hit the bar one day after practice and it was ugly. I think the Sounders FC web guys got it on film. Best that I stick to observing and writing, probably.
Anyway, I’m back in Seattle tomorrow. Thanks Coach for taking the time, and thanks everyone for chiming in with questions.
