Okay, so maybe we weren’t world champs, but we kicked BUTT at the beach soccer tournament this past weekend at Spanish Banks!!! This is the Beached Whales second year win in a row!! I must pick good teams to play on, because there is definitely a layer of rust that has somehow appeared on my legs which I can’t seem to shake off! haha We were stacked with retired uni/college players but you definitely don’t need a lot of skill to play soccer on the beach. It’s pretty much a game of kick and run but so fun! I’ve played in this tournament 3 different years (champs each time!! wooot wooot!!) and EVERY year it seems to be the only rainy weekend of the summer. We were hoping for sun, but hanging out underneath a tent in warm sweat pants sippin’ on a few brewskies was pretty much alright :) It was great seeing tons of friendly familiar faces in the soccer community. I miss it!!! A bunch of old SFU players were there too which was great to catch up with over a few beers. I love it when you catch up with friends who you haven’t seen in a while and it feels like you haven’t even skipped a beat. Good times!!!
Our jersey’s (if you can call them that- haha) were made in the sweatshop with personal designs. Once the scissors came out of Erin’s first aid kit, there seemed to be less and less of each of ours. I only rocked the onesie for one game this year, as it was affecting my playing ability. lol. It will make an appearance next year once again :) Tabo just had to put my phone number on the back of my shirt… TABO!!! Surprisingly I did get a bunch of random funny texts and messages.. So funny!
Here’s a pic of our victory shotgun provided by our proud sponsor :) It was the longest shotgun in world history I’m guessing, since I was a part of it. This is definitely a weakness of mine! But i’m quite alright with that :) It always seems to give a good laugh! AND I don’t know how to burp (WHAT??!!! you’re saying!!) – yes this is true – so I’d rather take my good ol’ time! There are more of us out there with this disability, you’d be suprised!!!
Smile with your heart!!
