Why so uptight?

RefBlog at related • 0 views
OK, this happens every year and I'm not sure why the center referee was so uptight about it. So, of the two adult leagues that I (and most of us in this area, actually) work with, the men's league has all their games at one steady time, barring venue restrictions; the women's league does the same, except their game start is 15 minutes later than the men's typical time - except 2/3 into the season, they move all the games up 15 minutes to deal with earlier sunsets.

Friday Rant

Happy Friday guys. I thought I'd change it up a bit and go all Simon Borg on ya. So pretend your reading this in a loud and boistrous fashion. Growl at some point mid-sentence to keep it real. Here's your Friday rant. Enjoy!I'll never understand the mentality of so many adult amateur soccer players. It happens to nearly every athlete who doesn't make it as a pro: they love the game and join adult leagues.

If you play soccer or are a fan, you know why it's called the Beautiful Game. Soccer is a global language that has the power to unify people. Last weekend, a group of players got together in Los Angeles so that others around the world can have the opportunity to play as well.

The event, called Play Soccer So They Can, was organized by Opportunitas Aequas (Latin for "Equal Opportunity), a non-profit, grassroots organization that uses soccer to build stronger communities for youth affected by war and violence.

Sounders Show Some Decent Dodgeball Skills

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views


Coming off a chunk of their schedule that saw them play nine matches in 31 days, it was hardly surprising to show up at Seattle Sounders training camp on Thursday and find that they weren't doing soccer activities. I was shocked to see them playing dodgeball though.

I only got there in time to catch the final, but I was pretty impressed with what I saw.

The Police Playing the Policed

I am a founding officer for the Union Football League, an AYSO-affiliated adult league which plays near downtown Los Angeles. When we heard that the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) would field a team during our first season we were a bit wary.

The field is smack in the middle of Pico-Union, and right down the street from the new police station.

One of the time-honored, post-match traditions of adult league soccer leagues is to head to the pub and have a pint or two (or three). Many believe that beer and other alcohol-containing drinks actually aid recovery. The argument is that alcohol is a carbohydrate and carbohydrates help replenish energy stores.
