Has Lindy Met Her Match?!

Meet Anna, number 13 for the Orange Crush.  Lindy’s Silver Sharks had yet to see the likes of Anna this year.  Anna battles.  Anna’s fast.  And Anna doesn’t quit.  Frankly, Anna reminds me of Lindy! That combination made for a great soccer game on Saturday.  Enjoy.

David Beckham

No.  She doesn’t have any tattoos.  Nor does she have magazine worthy abs.  Nor do I believe that she could do it every time. But this past Saturday, David Beckham had nothing on Aspen. If you’d care to watch the whole game, feel free to do that.  It’s a good …

A loss, but the good kind

This year has been jam packed with soccer victories.  The girls are on good teams, and the stars have aligned for a lot of wins.  Not so for Oakley’s team this week.  They ran up against a really big, really skilled team.  But you know what?  The Cheetahs that I …

The Lou, Game 2

Lindy’s soccer career continues.  Game 2 was hot.  Like, 90 something degrees.  And Lou’s motor still didn’t quit.  

Fire & Ice, Game 2

A week ago, we featured a lot of video from Lindy and Oakley’s games, but we mostly had stills from Aspen’s game.  Not so this week.  For your perusal, we have nearly 10 minutes of exciting video from Fire & Ice.  This features good moments from most of the team… …

The Other Side of the Coin

A year ago, Aspen’s team played in one tough league.  The league consisted of the Purple Pandas, 3 teams from Brentwood Soccer Club, 1 team of pseudo club players, and 1 other team comparable to the Pandas.  Frankly, there were several very challenging games.  But the girls never gave up… …

Oakley’s Return to Action

Little Miss Lindy isn’t the only one playing soccer this fall.  Oakley returned to the field with several of her mates from last season (or the one before).  Because Oak is now old enough to play in the “advanced” league, it was possible to keep some of the girls together. …

Another Soccer Career Begins

Quite frankly, I think she deserved this moment.  Little Miss Lindy has trekked to countless soccer games… she’s been on the sidelines in utero, she’s been there in frigid cold, she has been there. She’s been talking about it for days.  She had to watch both sisters play before her again …

Wave Slamming

The kids (ours and the cousins) were all about the waves this year. While it makes me nervous on occasion, I can’t really argue with them. The waves are absolutely my favorite part of going to the beach too. For you, I have a review of the best wave jumping …

The Giraffe

Today was a good day, a memorable one. Like most Saturdays, it started at the market, where we bought some 32 quarts of strawberries… But that’s another post. From there, to the soccer fields, where the Purple Pandas (Aspen’s team) managed a 1-1 draw against a team that had beaten …
