Got a Soccer Player in the Family?

When I grew up, it was fuzz ball and street hockey in the alley behind Bobby Parres’ and Tom Toczylowski’s house. Home when the streetlights came on.

Nowadays, it’s paid coaches and specialization. Supervision is multi-layered and intrusive.

Thank goodness a blog has found the humor in it all. “FullRideSoon” chronicles the world of a soccer mom supporting her little athletes on their quest for the glory. If only my parents were more like her, I may have become a successful athlete (at some sport that does not require speed or coordination).
