… soccer. It use to be that I thought of March Madness as the start of the travel soccer season. That ended this year as my soccer-playing daughter is in college. So today, in what may be promising to be a nice spring day, I get my spring dose of soccer. Susan’s new college team is scrimmaging the local university.
Two reasons for attending – one, I sit on the board of the youth soccer club whose fields are hosting the event. I should visit them every now and then. Two, I am a soccer parent. I love soccer, particularly if one of my kids is in it. I traveled over 13,000 miles last fall to watch Division 1 Women’s soccer at various locations. Why shouldn’t I travel 3 miles down the road?
