Don Shinguards sounds like a shit tequila that would be made by two SDSU drop outs and sold to green-goes at a ridiculous price.

Shinguards are for people who can't afford to take a 2 week long painkillers on the couch vacation.


Fixed.

That's the plan. But not with the sort of 'can't do attitude' illustrated below:

ha ha...

You suck.

I'll be there kicking a ball against the wall and singing gunfighter ballads and trail songs. All these players on the West Side, South Bay, and Long Beach - we can't get 5 on 5?

When I did that planning/who's interested thread for a West Side pickup game TONS of people said they were interested and would come out if we started1 something up again.

When I started doing it on Saturday's they all said, they needed it to be on Sundays.

Now that it's on Sundays, all of those people need to show up.

You know who you are.

If people are actually going to show up... I'm in...

First time there, people started to show up around an hour late (5 total)

Second time... Ari called me saying no-one else had shown up period... (1 total)

I'm people.

There was a time when we not only had 7 v 7 or more but a gaggle of spectators as well.

I have faith.

The practice field south of the main field.

It has what Morgoth described as the 'bad guy abandoned warehouse hideout' feel to it.
