Anyway, Jonny would say it is the depth of skill involved in so many of the plays- foot work, ball control, and have you seen how far and acurately they can kick that ball?? etc. And my dad says that it is so exciting when they score because it obviously takes so much work to make happen! I personally would much rather watch soccer than baseball too! But I would watch anything my sons were playing:)Christine####noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8341689034619131983.post-88577521763681876682009-10-10T08:55:21.319-05:002009-10-10T08:55:21.319-05:00You are a very good friend indeed.

I enjoy it simply because she tries so hard and actually has some success at it. Also, she plays in another where she is not pegged before she starts as the kid who can&#39;t run well. <br /><br />Oh, and MY high school DID have a girls soccer team. Yup, Seneca was local and we did have soccer so you just missed out by going to Morris. I had friends who played and from what they talked about, it was vicious and dangerous. So of course I would have been afraid of it.<br /><br />I love Jodi&#39;s comment!!!! Most people would agree, Jodi, but when you have kids you do stupid things just because you love them.Linda####noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8341689034619131983.post-70983158842184178142009-10-08T13:45:59.840-05:002009-10-08T13:45:59.840-05:00I would rather be sitting in my dentist&#39;s chai...I would rather be sitting in my dentist&#39;s chair than the bleachers of a soccer game.Jodinoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8341689034619131983.post-32742790441081633642009-10-08T09:46:49.123-05:002009-10-08T09:46:49.123-05:00I am a soccer mom.

I would not go to a soccer, softball, baseball game, track meet, etc. - but I love watching my kids compete and then I get drawn into the sport as well.Sherollnoreply@blogger.com
