Every Thursday afternoon, Hannah’s school sends out “Friday Notes”, their weekly communication to parents. I didn’t read it until yesterday afternoon, and was shocked when I read that AYSO soccer practices start next week. Whattaya mean practices start next week? I’m our team’s assistant coach (in charge of organizing stuff) and no one TOLD me!! So I called up Matt, our coach. He wasn’t home, so I talked to his wife Joy. She said he’d call me back.
So I called him again today. He told me that AYSO contacted him mid-week to say that practices can start as soon as Monday, and we needed to have a family meeting as soon as possible. Then he had to go because he was headed out the door. arg.
I panicked. Then I got out my AYSO folder and started making phone calls. Long story short, we’re having our first meeting (and hopefully practice) Thursday at 4:30. With my luck, that will be the day it rains. But that’s the reason I have a headache. Having to organize a team on short notice would, I think, give anyone a headache.
In other news: George Mason beat Wichita State to advance to the Elite Eight in the NCAA Men’s basketball tournament. They are this year’s Cinderella team. However, I got to thinking about it, and here’s the headline I would write if George Mason gets beat by UConn tomorrow:
UConn Cans Ball Team’s Hopes
Fate Hermetically Sealed
And a fond Rest In Peace to Buck Owens, who passed away today at the age of 76. He’ll now be Pickin’ and Grinnin’ in his Eternal Hee-Haw show.
Whether that’s heaven or hell is your decision.
