Swam w/ Roger, Danny, Dave, Dave and Ray. Knocked out a lot of yardage pretty quick today. Not quite as stiff and sore as I usually am on Mondays. Saturday, I showed up to my team's U16 soccer game expecting to relax on the sidelines and manage substitutions. When I got there, the other coach came over and said "uh coach... are any of your parent's referees?" I told her no but I am a referee and if she didn't have a problem with me being a ref, I'd do it. The biggest problem I had was that I wore flip-flops to the game and they weren't going to be suitable for running. So, I ended up reffing the first half barefoot. I handed the team over to one of my players (and a "responsible adult") who had broken his arm last week. He did an awesome job as a coach calling in subs and making sure everyone was in the right place. The team played better than I've ever seen and they won convincingly.

Last night I played in our weekly short sided games. Last week I did a lot more scoring. This week, we had more younger ex-college players show up. Not quite as much scoring on my part but plenty of running. I learned a lot. Hopefully I can find a way to pass it along to my U16 team.
