My girls play through it all. Brutal weather. Corrupt referees. Clueless coaches.
They’ve won and lost games in shootouts. Scored colossal goals. Been party to enormous collapses and stunning comebacks.
They’ve taken verbal abuse from opposing parents, been roughed up by overmatched opponents, and could fill a thousand goals with all the post-game crackers and cookies and chips and Powerades and Gatorades they’ve demolished.
Does the game involve a ball? Expect grace, skill and confidence from my girls.
