g plays rec u12 soccer. he's a star. but doesn't want to play comp. weird. whatever. some of the teams they play are really good. some are really bad. they were playing a kind of in the middle team. kinda like his. one kid got smacked in the face. then went on a bit of a smeegal/gollum monologue (is it really a monologue? hmm) for a while. apparently disparaging the ref. who was within earshot. he got a yellow card. we on the sidelines were wondering what the heck that was all about. never seen a yellow card in rec soccer before. first for me. coach said don't say anything. though the kids switched to whatever language kids who look stereotypically jewish would switch too. it was too early in the morning for our kids. most of em were asleep. but it was a nice morning to sit in the dew. with wet shoes. and cheer. and try to figure out the rules for this level of soccer.
