*I know it was only their first match of the tournament that they won, but wouldn’t it be nice to be able to write that for realz!?! A boy can dream, can’t he?
Anyway, to watch the match I met up with my dad and elusive bro at a local pub. This was the scene when they scored the winning goal…
I love how soccer has become so popular in the States recently. I wish when I was a kid that they had a pro league and showed Euro Leagues and World Cup matches on TV. Oh well, I’m enjoying it now!
Still on the winning high, I got up this morning for my run. Despite only getting a few hours sleep due to a certain 2 year old waking up at 4am, I still had a pretty good run. That is until I was going through ‘my’ park and I saw two German Shepherds hauling arse across the field. I stopped in my tracks not wanting them to chase me. I didn’t see any owners. Then I thought maybe I saw them wrong, maybe they are coyotes. Time to assess the situation. But then I saw the owners…
A male and female couple. They came around the corner. They were throwing balls for the dogs to chase. Clearly violating the leash law. I gave them a stare down to let them know it was not cool that they were interrupting my run. I still wasn’t moving because I didn’t know if the dogs wouldn’t come after me. I kept staring until they finally waved at me. I did not wave back. I know, rude much. But they were rude for not having their dogs on a leash when there’s runners and kids around. I waited till the dogs were going in the opposite direction and continued on my way.
I’m glad to report I made it home safely. Crisis adverted. You can breath easy now.
How bout you? Did you see the US victory in their opening match? Give anyone a stare down lately? How many bar flies did I catch in my mouth?
