It's wonderful to have something that can generate so many different feelings, and soccer sure has had it's fair share of ups and downs for me. In the end, I don't think I've ever loved anything more than this beautiful sport. I would escape the drama and any troubles by dribbling the ball, juggling haphazardly, or running after the shanked shot.
I have so much more to look forward to post college soccer then I may understand or want to accept at the moment. That's quite alright. For now, I'm going to grab a tub of ice cream (half baked of course), go through old soccer photos from years past, cry a mixture of happy and sad tears, and smile as I watch the SFA vs Oregon game. The smile will come about almost subconsciously as my mind trys to wrap it's own thoughts around the match and all the wonderful adventures I'll come across in the years to come.
Now go kick some Oregon butt, Lady Jacks! Thanks and Axe'em.
