Corner Kicks

Maybe the point isn’t
To kick to the other team
But come on,
Soccer is just a cross between
Keep Away
And
Kickball

I know for most of the world
That might be sacrilegious
But the worth of soccer for me
Passed when Kyle Rote, Jr.
Stopped yelling, “Man on!”

Don’t get me wrong
Soccer players have great skill
And the game is beautiful
If you can’t stand NASCAR
Or golf
So let’s keep perspective
On the role soccer
Plays in our kids’ lives

The game must be fun
The lessons of sportsmanship,
Teamwork, and
Commitment must be the focus
Helping the kids find their strengths
While working through their weaknesses

How about we just let them play
Soccer would be much better then
