Teammates matter

For the first time since I was in middle school, I got to be part of an actual soccer team. It was a team at my work, playing weekly games at one of the city parks. Soccer is my favorite sport to watch, and while I felt very out of shape, I had an absolute blast getting back on the field.

Our team won quite a few games, and made it to the finals in the playoffs. But what was most impressive to me was that everybody played, everybody had a chance to contribute, and we all became friends during the 8 weeks together.

The next season starts in just a few weeks! What are you playing this fall?
