Filed under: soccer — Brian @ 8:00 am

My team’s first soccer game starts in seven minutes, and I’m stuck at home.

I had a work project scheduled for overnight last night since before I signed up to coach. It’s very rare for me to have things like that lately, but this one is in its 16th straight hour and still not done. I got maybe an hour’s worth of sleep last night.

I made arrangements last week with the assistant coach to handle today’s game, and he’s completely OK with it.

On the upside, this work thing should end within the next hour or so. And we have a second game on Tuesday, with practice on Monday, like usual.

I just hate to miss the first game!



  1. That does stink. Here’s hoping it’s the only one you’ll have to miss.

  2. Thanks, Jim.

    That is the plan. I have no more overnight-weekend stuff planned for the rest of the season, and now that I know when the games are, I can plan around them.

    We knew to expect the conflict today, and the assistant coach did a great job, so everything went smoothly for the boys. That’s the important part.
