One Tough Soccer Loss

Congrats to Bob Dylan for winning the Nobel Prize for literature. He certainly has been a prolific songwriter and one that I haven't seen in concert yet. That is on the bucket list.

We woke up to 38 degree weather this morning. It's been a while and I found out that I still like summer quite a bit better.

Bad news on the soccer front. The Mustangs lost their semi-final match up. It was a 1-1 game through regulation and two overtime periods. They lost in the shootout which is a tough way to loose any game which you've played so well. Coco had a brilliant shot from the side but the goalie made a terrific stop.

After the game Coco shed a few tears. This year's team was much more talented that the one last year that came out of nowhere to win second place. They worked so hard and put out so much effort. I told him the other teams do also and sometimes you just come up short. He was also a bit upset that he wouldn't be playing with his 8th grade friends anymore. He wasn't ready for that harsh reality. We believe there will be a third place game and maybe that will help him get some closure. It was a terrific season and the kid has become one of the best 12 year old midfielders in the whole state.

He certainly has the fire in the belly now. He says he is going to work even harder so no one can stop him next year. I can't wait for next year son!
