I've played plenty of adult park district sports over the years. Softball (hate it), dodgeball (liked it initially, grew to hate it), sand volleyball (love it passionately). But now some friends have been trying to recruit me to play soccer.
They're currently playing a fall league that I refused to take part in mostly because it's too far away from where I live and on a weekend thus requiring me to spend a lot of time driving on a day I'd rather spend with my family. I told them (assuming there's no way it would happen) that if they start a winter indoor league much closer to my home, I'd probably do it.
According to the last I heard from them, they're going to.
I haven't played organized soccer since I was seven years old. I haven't even played pickup soccer in the last decade. To be honest, I don't even understand the game. Sure, I get the basics. But there are some rules to the game that make zero sense. Even diehard soccer fans have trouble explaining them rationally (offsides, for example).
I am so screwed if this actually happens.
Or I may have fun. Who knows?
If we do it, though, I'm going to make it a point to try to recruit all the same guys for sand volleyball. I miss playing that. Badly. And they'll owe me. Big.
