Ball Goes Shit
2023 over 40 indoor
Since I have been taken off of the Dune Puma email list because of my injury I have no idea when the games are and for the most part will not be able to do the recaps because I don't know what time the games are. The Bearded Reporter would show up if informed, but as of now he has been banished form the team becasue of a knee injury,
Notes the have been forwarded are as followed: Dan left early and there was much rejoicing. and the game winning goal (for the other team) was a "cheeky" back heel.
It is said that Adam also left early, so as not to let Janice know he preferred hanging with the team and drinking vs getting yelled at.
It should be noted that Joe likes his gravy on the backside. Take that to mean whatever you think it means.
So I assume the Dune Pumas lost....but who know what the score was. 6? 12? 9? to 20?
Some one put Andy back on the email list........
All of this is hear say and none of it might have happened.

10/20/2023 over 30 outdoor
Last game of outdoor over 30 fall soccer. This is it this is the last game the Dune Pumas would play in fresh air and it would be a good game. It would be less one sided then the score would show.
The first attempt on goal would not take long. The first shot came from Cam on a well placed through ball, but his shot would be saved at by the keeper pushing the ball wide of the goal.
Again the Brewers pushed and came for a decent cross into the box and Kyle would jump and put the ball on frame. Again the keeper would be the hero and save it
The first goal would come from a selfless pass by Tator. He was in the penalty box but saw Kyle make a run toward the back post. The pass went through and Kyle passed hit home nice and simple. 1 to 0
Tator would be on his passing game today. The next attempt was from him to Cam. Cam put it right at the keeper.
Jamie went in for a fifty fifty ball but did not win it. There was an echoing call from the crowd. "Jamie come on" or it could have been a bad pass, but who knows the truth of these things.
Adam could not pass the ball in the first half to save his dignity. Three passes in a row went right to the other team. This would continue for a while but would get cleaned up as the second half started. Luckily he was holding the defense strong and was useful enough not to bench.
Ken was marking one of the fastest players on the field, but this is no excuse. He got megged right in front of the Brewers bench and was taunted by his home team as he recovered and headed back on defense.
Kurt was marking the man in the blue shorts on the other team. The ball was sent through and it was a foot race. Kurt was side by side with the guy but ended up falling on his face as the guy went past. This was the first of the many one on ones Dan had to clean up.
Kurt would shortly after have the ball kicked into his hand while in the box, it fell to his feet and he cleared it over the touch line. No penalty was called.
Cam picked up a bad pass out of the back from the goalie. It might have ricocheted off a defender to his feet and he took a touch and put it into the goal for his second.
Kyle took an elbow to the face on a challenge but the ball would still be mad for came to strike the ball up and over the keeper into the far top corner. Half the bench watched as he had the opportunity and most of them did don't shoot don't shoot. But he shot and scored....the bench went silent.
Sonny got one by accident. He scored a goal while attempting to cross the ball, but instead the cross was to far forward and headed into the back corner of the goal. He attempted to sound like that is what he ment to do, but after he struck the ball he was heard yelling "shit." He knows he miss hit it but would take the goal as his own.
New Jason would get a goal as well. He receiver a ball out of the air on a run. He took a touch, chipped the defender and was able to bring it down and score the goal.
Sonny would put another cross into the center. Cam would take the ball out of the air and hit the post. The ball would fall it Justin and he would tap it in. For a while it looked like a goal and it should have been. The other team claimed offsides and the ref made the call and the goal was disallowed.
Dan would have another one on one. He would get all of the ball and the player went sailing over from the contact. Someone from the bench reminded Kurt that he should have been there.
New Jason and Mark would go up for the same ball. They both liked up for. Head ball and ended up colliding. In the air they said they touch penises....neither of them said how it felt.
Tator would have a chance from a simple pass across the goal. He would miss the goal but a bit.
Justin would finally get a goal off a cross from Cam.
All in all it was recorded that Dan made five one on one save and a hand full of good to decent saves keeping the other team at zero.
The guy in blue shorts on the other team was quoted as saying "if I was on a team that passed I would have so many goals."
Note of interest. Vitamin B12 is required for the function and development of many parts of the body, including the brain, nerves, and blood cells. Methyl cobalamin is the active form of vitamin B12. Cyanocobalamin, which must be processed by the body into the active form, is the most common type used in supplements. But if you want to do better try B13.
Sonny had his phone out while in at the urinal. The Breaded One was convinced he took a dick pick to send to his wife. Yet was not sure it was a pick of him or not.
What is a mini van. Sure you know. It is a vehicle with two people in the front and up to five in the back. Yet there is more than that. We all know that. Yes we all know it is a sex position. Two fingers in the front and five in the back. It is up for debate as to what the cargo truck is. Pickup below for the mini van.
Lost untranslated note "Mark dp. Hat. Mark.". ......(editors note, I have no idea)

The return of Sarge.
The man the myth the legend has returned. After a second long absence Sarge has returned to the playing field. His knee, caf or ankle (maybe Achille) are better and he can run around a bit with the over 40s on Tuesdays.
Again it was a loss for the Brewers, but a good performance non the less. The Brewers were out matched, but put in a good effort considering last season they lost by double digits to The Lucky Clovers. This time it was only four to zero. And one of those was an own goal...so let's say 3 to 1.
Justin had the first "real" chance on goal in the game. He got the ball in the box and had to turn quickly. He put the ball three miles over the goal and it went into the parking lot and hit a jeep. The ball did not go in the goal.
Adam would start as the central defender, but would not stay there for long. Early in the game he decided to make a few runs forward to try to make a difference. He did. He had a few good crosses and a few decent shots. He played the full game and work hard through out.
Joe was moving while he was on the field, and playing soccer. This was noticed from the players on the bench and The injured Bearded one noted....that is good coaching right there.
Justin and Tim ended up marking a guy with the ball. He was attacking the right corner. He cut once, then twice, then again and finally a fourth time end ended up getting the cross off betting both of the Brewers. But the ball want over the touch line so it was a win for the good guys in the end.
Jamie got the first real sot on goal for the Brewers. It was a long shot but hard and on target. It forced the keeper to make a save.
She would later be the reason for the first goal scored in the game. She would make a bad pass out of the back. She was looking to pass the ball cross field to Lonny on the right but it would go directly to other team. He was wide open and had time at the top of the box and hit a smasher into the back of the net.
Dan had a great game in the goal. I could make some shit up about his saves and they would be believed, but I will just put up some highlights. A shot came in and he saved it with his foot, it bounce just out of reach and was shot at him again. Again he made the save and again it was just out of reach, but our defense clears the ball.
Dan would smothered a two on one from the corner. Tim got beat on the out side and no one followed the forward in the center. Dan attended the player with the ball and cut off the pass to the middle. No one is sure how it happened or how much it hurt, but in the end the ball was trapped between Dan's legs for the save.
Justin would try again with a half field shot trying to get the Brewers their first goal, but it would land in the keepers hands. It was a bit optimistic, but it was an attempt.
Sarge was all in on his first game back. While playing defence has worked his way up the field and passed the ball to Stef, who one touched it back into Sarge's path. The goalie came out and Sarge went into a fifty fifty challenge with the keeper. Sarge would not win the challenge but would get to the ball the same time the keeper did and end up going head over heals after the contact.
Lonny had two good chances one was on a through ball that he put just over the back post and the other was a simple shot that the keeper just got his finger tips to and pushed it wide.
The score was two to zero right before the half. The ball went out for a corner kick and Dan rushed to get the ball and threw it to the other team. There was less than thirty seconds left of the clock. The cross came in an landed at Tim's feet and with one touch he put the ball into the back of the net for an own goal. Ending the half at three to zero.
The Brewers were doing well in the second half and was about to hold the Lucky Clovers to a no scoring half. Yet at the last minute the bad guys scored a goal. After it went in the ref blew the whistle and the game was over. Final 4 to 0
After the game Jamie was complaining about her hot hammy. She's been working through a hamstring injury and was wearing a neoprene sleeve. So her hot hammy was getting warmer than normal.
Joe is also still rolling around the ruff and tuff city serving up subpenises.
It was kind of cold after the game and Jamie had gloves on and could not put her koozie on her beer, so Dan keep dressing her beer for her.
While watching a lacrosse practice and drinking, Sarge kept yelling toward the field, "hit the girl with the stick."
Turns out pink eye is a form of conjunctivitis and is the basically eye herpes.
Some one on the team told a story about how their neighbors drive way light was shining into their bedroom. Instead of talking the that neighbor this one person decided that the best course of action was as to drop trow and moon them. Now to no one surprise only moments later the light was turned off.
Now if it happens again the new idea is to wag a Weiner instead of show the moon. The other idea was to go full monkey on the neighbor and throw fecal matter out the window.
And then we started talking about dicks and dildos. Seems dildos are dishwasher safe but dicks are not. You should not use bleach on either of them.
Again something strange was said, and a note was taken, but little is know about the quote. While Jamie was wagering her Weiner at Dan she kept yelling "wake up little one." That is all the note said.
Lastly and the last dick joke. No one is quite sure why a blow job is called a blow job. You don't blow in anything. Yet when guys get old and the skin gets l loose and wrinkly then you could blow and play the penis like a skin flute....and noise might be made.
For the woman out there the same thing could happen while wearing a skirt on a windy day.
Shit one more thing, but then this needs to end. It sounds like there is a video out there that changes the meaning of the words "ball goes shit" (editors note....I tried to find this video, but could not and I thing everyone is grateful) as the story goes a well manicured man pushed one of his own testicles into his ass and then pulled it out. Yup he shit his own ball. Not even sure how that is possible.

9/24/2023 over 30 outdoor (sunday)
Sunday soccer is always good. Sunday soccer at six in the afternoon is not as good. But outdoor soccer is coming to an end and the Brewers do what they can to keep playing.
This game would be a good game. Eight goals would be scored for the Brewers, while three would be scored by the other team.
The game started with the Brewers having three subs and the other team starting with ten. That would not last long and the other team would get a full squad before the Brewers scored their first goal. Kyle would get a cross into the box and score withing the first ten minutes or the game.
Shortly after that Cam would put another cross into the center of the goal and it would deflect of a defender and past the keeper into the goal. In no time the Brewers were up by two.
On defense Austin would attempt to clear the ball out of the box. As it sailed towards Gill, Austin would yell "let" but the ball would crash into Gill's back and the ball would have to be cleared a second time.
The next best change for the Brewers was off another cross into the box. New Jason would get a chance at it, but completely miss hit it. Matt would get the second chance at it but put it right into a defender's legs. It would pop out to Jamie and she would put it over the goal.....like she does.
Jack and Jamie would hook up for the third goal. Jack would carry the ball up the field with an two one one with a defender. He would pass to Jaime. She put the shot one goal and under the crossbar, but it would be saved by the keeper only to land back on Jack's foot for a tap in.
Back on defense The Caterer would win a mostly fifty fifty ball after a long ball was pushed forward. He would clear it towards the side line but it would end our hitting the corner flag on its way out and still end up as a throw in for the other team.
Dan would be a good keeper and lay himself out on a long shot and just barely get his hand to it and tip it wide.
The half would end three to nothing.
New Jason would would go in for a soft chalange and pull up lame and tweek his hammy again. The ref called the ball dead even though the Brewers had the advantage. Jason would come off the field as the play was called dead. There was no foul and when asked about it later he would say, "the ref and I have a bond. You need to make your own way in this world and make connections." Jason would not return to the pitch.
The first goal for the other team came from the man in the white shirt. He was the only one on the other team wearing a white shirt. This must have thrown off the defense since he has a long ball put threw the defense and he hit a shot just out of Dan's reach.
The Caterer would end up in a two one one situation. He played it well for a while, knowing the man in the white shirt never seemed to pass the ball. But as he stepped in to clean the ball just inside of the box, he would miss and end up on his ass. This let the white shirted man past him, but Dan made the save.
On another defensive play Dan would save a shot only to have it fall to the opposing team. Another shot would come and Jamie would get in the way and clear it off the line.
Cam would get another chance on goal from distance. It went right at the keeper l, but it was misplaced. The goalie got in front of it but it went through his hands and hit him in the junk. There is a great Polaroid of it. He laid on the ground for a moment and play continued, stretched and took a knee while he tried to recover.
At this point Cam looked like he wanted a goal and he wanted one bad, but he would be denied as he wandered offsides, received the ball and put the ball in the back of the net. No goal. Yet as the other team put it in play they must have felt bad for him. They put it in play and Cam intercepted the ball. His first shot was at the keeper but the second attempt he put a wicked shot into the side netting to score his first real goal.
Cam would get another one from distance shortly after with a long shot that just went inches from the goal keeper. After getting hit him in the nuts he may not have wanted to get in front of any of Cam's shots from here on out.
Not long after Cam would get his true hat trick. He would again get the ball just out side of the box and Laser it into the side netting.
Kyle would also get a goal. There was a throw in. Jamie put the ball into play and it landed between Tator and Kyle. Kyle was heading towards the goal and kept yelling at Tator, two or three times, that Kyle wanted the ball. Tator let him have it after what looked like a little confusion and Kyle would take one touch and smash it into the upper near corner. He would celebrate by pointing to the sky and jogging back to the half line.
Tator would receive a ball out of the air around the half line. He would pull off the infamous Mark Eckmen ass trap. This would lead to another goal. From here the ball would work it's way up the field and back into Tator's path. He ended up with the ball inside of the box. He was alone. One on one with the keeper. He let the ball stop. Took a step to the right, then to the left, finally he took a step back to line up the shot, he may have put his finger up to test the wind and then shot the ball directly at the keeper. Luckily a defender was there to clean up his mess and put the ball into the back of the net. Gill got the rebound and ended up scoring.
Another goal came ageist the Brewers when the man in the white shirt did something he had not done all game. He passed the ball to a teammate and that guy put the ball into the back of the goal.
Mark fouled a guy in the second half. Sure.it was a foul and no one disputed it. Mark went in and hit the bottom of the defender's cleat. The wish blew and then Justin, from the side line, yelled it was incidental contact. He just kicked the bottom of the guys foot. The ref as this point exploded. He looked at our bench and yelled something like, "you are players I am the ref. Just like I told the other team, You do your job and I will do mine." Basically telling use to know our role.
A few goals might have been left out, but it was a good game.
After the game things were learned, but not much. The scariest thing was finger toes. People should not be able to manipulate things with their toes, but it seems like Matt and ALL of his family can do that. It is so prevalent in his family it can be used as a way to determine if you are part of his family.
Editors not. My sister in-law freaked me out once or twice because she too can pick up pens and paper with her toes.
Then we get to Crocks and Socks. I guess not all old men wear sandals and socks. Hell some of the Brewers won't wear sandals because their feet are well past making public appearances. Yet Crocks at comfortable and hide the feet. Ugly but I guess not as ugly as feet.
The. We have Crocks jewelry. Crocs jibbitz. They are like The Pandora bracelet but for your feet. Not sure if they make the shoes prettier, but they are a thing.
The goalie tryin to recover from a long shot he took in the nuts
9/19/2023 over 40 outdoor
Before the game the Brewers were somewhat concerned about numbers. The most important part of these numbers was....nine.
9/17/2023 over 30 outdoor (sunday)
The first game of the fall session. Why are we playing on a Sunday? It was a late arriving crew, likely due to a close Packer game that ended poorly. More sporting disappointment would follow.
We warmed up on the south end of the field but Tator informed us just before game time we would switch sides to start the game due to sun and wind considerations...this fact will return in a moment.
We started the game a bit late and had a 3 man advantage for the first several minutes but couldn't muster any offense. The other team didn't seem to understand offsides and were caught several times often by many yards and still complain about it. About 15 minutes in they finally got the pass correct and an offensive player put a weak touch to the ball from about 15 yards out. It spun and floated and drifted in the wind. As Dan went to make a routine save the ball floated into the sun and Dan was blinded entirely. He got a bit of a touch on the ball but not nearly enough to keep it out. A few minutes later the goal scorer would take Adam down from behind with a swipe at his legs...Adam screamed at him and threw the ball at him. Wally would brandish the yellow card. Later in the half as a ball came into the box, a defensive player would completely run over Nic. It drove his shoulder into the ground and he would be done for the game...hopefully he won't miss much time. The brewers would have some first half chances but never really challenged the keeper.
The second half didn't go much better. The brewers had some great balls into the box but never could find the final touch to score. The bad guys managed to put one in when Austin got a touch on a cross, fell down, and left the ball at the offensive players feet. he tapped into the corner from 6 yards out. 2-0 loss to a bad team. Quote from Jaime, "well, that was embarrassing."
We did have a good drinking day. The brewers majors team was playing on the stadium field which added some extra entertainment. We did a lot of yelling, particularly on a weak penalty call against the brewers. Sunny repeatedly screamed Set him on fire after every foul. We were told later that the refs asked Billy to calm us down...he did not.
The other team did not come to retreive their tickets...so we took them. Shortly after that another team gave us their extra tickets. The included picture was taken after we had already finished our allotment. We all agreed we would not use all the tickets...challenge accepted. It got chilly so Mark, Dan, and Jaime went into watch indoor. The tickets did not last. One admission, we did trade 3 tickets for popcorn...how is popcorn worth the same as 3 beers?
Topics of discusssion:
- People from Canada are Canadans...there is no "i" in that word.
- We sent sunny to get the other teams tickets because he's foreign and the mexican kid was in the booth. We figured minorities need to stick together and he wouldn't be denied.
- The MGM Casino hack was discussed. Question: were the hookers affected? Answer: No, they were already infected.
- Jaime was discussing another player on the brewers team and said "He rubs me off..." there was too much laughter for her to finish that sentence
- Business plan: Uber emergency as a cheaper alternative to ambulances. The user pays a higher fees and covers any traffic ticket expenses.
These tickets all showed up after the brewers drank of theirs
9/12/2023 over 40 outdoor
Fall soccer is here. 65 degrees with a bit of a chilly easterly wind. Another game where the brewers can't score enough goals to win. Luckily the other team couldn't either and it ended up 1-1. Adam got the first goal about half way through the first half by powering it through the goalie...I'm sure he'd like that one back. The brewers had some nice breaks and got into threatening positions we just couldn't put it in the net. The bad guys had some decent possession but only one good scoring opportunity but Dan snuffed it out. In the second half we gave up a bad header goal on the back post. Tim had good position but misjudged the cross and let it past to the offensive player for the finish.
9/5/2023 over 40 outdoor
Ok let's do this. It was the first game of the season. It it was against one of the better teams in the league. For a while it looked like it would be a win. Then a tie and finally a loss.
The game would start and the Brewers would be two players down. On a nine on nine game they would only have seven on the field when Wally blew the whistle to start the game.
Mark would.be the first late player to show up before the game started, when asked to "hussal a little" he would slowly quick step a few yards to show his motivation, but would not be ready before the game started.
Two of the Andy's would stroll up and put on their gear as the game started. The last Andy to show up, the Caterer, was dressed and ready to go, and dropped his bag and jumped right into the game. Stef and the tall one took some time to get their shit together.
Adam was also late and took some time to get his gear on, but would end up making a friend as the game went on.
Adam would have the first shot on goal for the Brewers in the first half. It would be saved but it would be on net. For a while it seemed like that would be the best the Brewers could muster.
The Brewers went a goal down before half. Even after Dan saved a goal with the flick of his wrist. Off a cross a player got up and put ahead ball onto foal. Dan waved his hand at it and sent the ball over the cross bar. When asked after the game he admitted he did not see the ball hit his hand but he saved the goal nonetheless.
The first goal would be scored by the bad guys. Putting the Brewers down a goal.
Tator would get a chance to tie the game up after receiving the ball in the box. He would make a move, spinning the defender, and beat one more before have a one on one with the keeper. With a wide open goal he would pass it just outside of the near post. Missing the goal and wanting a second chance on the missed opportunity.
Adam would get the first goal. Lonny would pass the ball across the middle of the field and the tall Andy would let the ball through his legs, with some encouragement from the sidelines, Adam would collect it and put it home.
Shorty after a different Andy would steal the ball from the defense and score a second goal to put the Brewers up by one. Steff would grab a bad pass and take a few touches Toward the keeper and tap the ball into the near post with the outside of his foot to put the Brewers up by one.
Adam would be Adam and make friends with one of the opposing teams players. They guy was being overly aggressive and Adam was not ready to let him get away with it. After winning the ball from him three times in a row it seemed the game was on. Adam once again won the ball and dribbled it, longer than he should have, with this guy on his back. Adam was pushed and fouled three of four times before the ref called anything. The next Time Adam got the ball this same douchebag decided to throw a whole into Adam's back and winning a nice yellow card.
Tator had a few ball fall into his lap. He was wide open and a rebound ball came right out and onto his path. As would be expected, he looked at it and on his first touch he took a shot. This shot would not be anywhere near the goal and would come close to hitting a spectator in the stands.
For a while the Brewers would be up two to one. But the second half would not be kind to them.
Adam would put a pass through to the Tall Andy in the box. Two defenders would come into defend him, but they would colloid and both end up on the ground. The ball would slip out to Jamie and she would take the shot, but it would go over the bar......like it always does.
There was a ugly goal in the second half that would put the bad guys up by one. Some how one of the players would split two of the Brewers in the corner and put the ball into the middle of the goal. It was cleared and put back in. In he end someone that was not a defender was turned and the goal was scored.
At this point the game was tied, but sadly that would not last. The other team would score again..there was some miscommunication and the shorter was able to turn and put the ball into the net
The last few minutes of the game were hectic. The Brewers were down by one after an ugly goal outing the opposing team up. Adam had a last of a shot that hit the out side post. There were three corner kick in the last two minutes of the game. The closest on goal was a miss communication between Mark and tall Andy.
I'm the last few minutes the injured Bearded Andy would attempt to help speed up the game and try to run down a out of bounce ball. Two strides in he realized his good knee, now his newly bad knee, was not ready for that kind of movement. The caterer would grab a different ball on the sidelines and put the ball back in play.
The Brewers would lose the game three to two after leading two to one for most of the second half.
Mark would go up for a header. The attacking player would miss the death ball and hit Mark in the face. That would save a goal.
8/29/2023 over 30 outdoor (last game of summer)
Double guest post this week
Last game of the summer session with the brewers trying to go out on a high note. We didn't have the strongest line up as we were light on central defenders and only had 2 subs. Somehow the good guys made it work and we came out on top 3-2. The first goal started from a turn over outside our 18. Jaime ended up with the ball just across midfield on the left and put a looping cross into Tator who smashed it past the keeper. Tator would also get the second goal. After a short build up he ended up with the ball at the top of the box with his back to the goal. He made the turn and fired it into the lower right corner. We then had a defensive lapse which left us 4 on 2 in the back. Dan ended up one on one with the forward at the top of the box. Dan was able to take the ball off his feet but somehow the ball settled right back down to the offensive players feet. With Dan on the ground it was now left up to 3 defenders standing in front of the goal...we weren't able to block the shot. The bad guys got the next one also on a weak foul about 25 yards out. Our defender (Adam?) stuck a foot out on a dribbling forward and got a lot of ball but the offensive player took the tiny touch on his foot and supermanned to the ground. He tossed a cross into the middle of the box and our defender wasn't able to keep the offense from putting in an easy header. In hindsight, Dan wishes he would have gone out to punch the ball...or maybe the player. The brewers quickly countered off the kick off with a pass from the inside to the outside, back inside, back outside and Jamie put a cross on the floor for Nicoli to tap through the keeper. It was the game winner with 5 minutes left in the first half. There were no goals in the second half.
Secondary notes from a second source.
Tator would get into an altercation with another player. He pushed the guy to ground like he was a ragdoll and was called for a foul and then called him a "fuckin punk." It seems the other guy had his hand on Tator's back. Tator pushed him away him and he went flying.
Tator would also hit the post at least three times and attempt his patented 180 spring move after stealing the ball from the goalie. It should like he missed the goal completely with this shot
Also New Jason pulled his hammy near the end of the game. She would be fine when the next session starts up.
The Brewers ODBs would end the season with a final win and move the team into the top half of the table. Ending at number six out of thirteen teams.

Some times sports are fun. Sometimes even a loss can still be a good game. But Tuesday neither soccer not the game was fun. Sure the Brewers lost and scored two goals, but no one had fun. It was a 7 to 2 loss with four penalties awarded and taken. Only two of them went in.
Before the game the Brewers would get to the field early or at least some Brewers did, and would set up shop and warm up in the west side of the feild. The other team started warming up on the same side so that they did not have to look into the sun for the first half. In an unexpected move the ref decided (for the first time this season) to do a coin toss to decide who would kick of and chose a said. Jamie lost the coin toss and the Brewers had to switch sides and looking into the sun for the first half. This would only cause three issues when players could not see the ball....none of them lead to the many goals scored in this game .

Side note: Andy, the Bearded One, would calmly say, "i am going to take these three beer coupons up with these two 20% off kohls coupons and bring back five beers." Mark did not believe this was going to happen, but it did. Andy went up and told the bartender exactly what he had told his friends he was going to do and she gave him the five beers.
Brewers helping the homeless one empty beer can at a time.

Kurt was awarded the first Rented Mule award and hand the shirt. It was not for this game, but it was for the last few games. He will hopefully be able to pass this off to some one else next week.

It was a windy night for Tuesday soccer. The temp was slowly going down to sixty, but it was a great afternoon for soccer. Even better it was a win. Four to zero.

Friday was a disaster, and because of this the team is unofficially going to be renamed to the Poop Tunas until they win a game this out door season.

After the first week of over fourty outdoor soccer canceled due to wet fields, Out do soccer has now begun. Tuesdays are 9 on 9 soccer on half fields, with mostly the same rules as indoor soccer. No off sides, subbing on the fly and no drop kicking from the keeper. Other that that it is just like an outdoor game.
The Brewers ODB came out in good form. There was a lot of good passing to be seen and a lot of halfway decent shots. Most of the shots in the first half went over the bar as players were still trying to get used to the smaller goals. Yet most of the possession and shots in the first half came from the Brewers.
Lonie had two really good runs in the first half. The first was fed to him as he ran between two defenders in the middle of the field. He collected the ball just outside of the box with one touch and his second went just over the crossbar. His second run later in the half he received the ball inside the box as someone pushed the ball between two defenders. Lonie took one touch, which might have been one touch too many, then shot the ball. He did not get what he wanted on it and the keeps was able to save it with little effort.
Still in the first half, Kent forgot what sport he was playing. He thought he could triple-deke his way through four defenders. He made it past the first two and got himself in the box, took a another touch or two to get around the third but as he want past the fourth he lost the ball. The defender's big toe got just enough of the ball to get it out from under Kent. He was quoted at half as saying, "I had him, I just needed one more centimeter and I would have been through." He attempted to dribble through two or three defenders a few more times before half, all with the same effect.
While on the bench, Kent also yelled at Jamie for drippling to much and that she should pass the ball. Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black. Luckly Kent saw the humor in his own statement.
The drinking team was disappointed with the amount of tickets they got after the game. Sure there were not as many people on the team as when the games are eleven on eleven, but the amount of people that say after the game is about the same. Needless to say a few pitchers were purchased to make up for this oversight.
Now that it is warm outside the conversation turned from the normal conversation of when Dan and Jamie are going to move into their home they are building, to lawn care. It seems that a lot of home owners like to take care of their lawns and some of them take it very seriously. Mark tends to be very meticulous when it comes to lining his lawn and he once attempted to carve a Packer's G into it. From the ground he said it looked good, but when he went on his roof to take pictures, it still looked like a G, but not a Packer's G.
Dan pointed out that it might have been easier to do if he would have used a Segway lawn mower. Now I'm sure that Dan had no idea, but they exist and here is prof. There is a video below.
Once again the talk went to the long and drawn out process of Dan trying to buy a boat. This has also been a topic over the last few games. Of course when you talk about boats the talk leads to fishing or water skiing. This time it was fishing. My notes do not do this conversation justice so it is going to end up on the cutting floor.
The question of the night was what is worse, fire ants or sister ants? Turns out that sister ants are worse, because they are both your ant and your sister.
If you did not know there is a right and a wrong way to hit someone with a pool cue. You always hold the narrow end. If you hit them with the skinny end the cue will not break. It would act more like a whip than a bat. But if you hold the skinny end the thick end will snap off and hurt more.
At last call Dan, Joe and Mark liberated some tickets from one of the other teams and when the call was made they all got up and ran to the window to collect their last free beers.
I will not go into this too much, but Joe once shook OJs hand. He chased him down yelling "the Juice" If you want the whole story that is something for him to tell again. I would require an entire post on its own. .
no one is quite sure where the water came from, but we assume Sarge brought it to hydrate the team, but the only water being drank was Miller products.

It was not a pretty game, but it was a win. 10 to 9.
Kent got the first goal of the game after a slow start. No one seemed to want to run for the first few minutes of the game.
Tim scored the second goal of the game, but it was on the wrong goal.
Tator had a few goals in the game, before the game was over he would have a hat trick. He also was making friends in the second half. He was working hard to get the ball up front he slightly nicked one or two defenders legs. A tall gray beard man got mad and started yelling. He stepped up to Tator as if he wanted to fight. But in the end did nothing but yell.
Andy the Caterer had a good two minutes shift. He score a banger in the first half, and moments later he would pass the ball through to Sunny who would smash the ball home for his first goal of the game.
Gabe, a one time Brewer, played against us in this game. On a dead ball Tator stood in front of the ball for a minute and Gabe decided he did not like that and kicked the ball in to Tator's back.
In the second half Mark, aka OJ, got destroyed on a fifty fifty ball. He landed hard on his sholder and had the wind knocked out of him. The defender got a blue card to put them down a man. When Mark finely got up and started walking off the field he was heard ranting about the foul. This is paraphrased but it was something like this, "the was fucking ridiculous, fucking pussy play, that was a bullshit, fucking ass hole." Sunny would score during this power play.
Right in front of the opposing teams bench Jamie challenged for the ball and stepped on it and went down. As she was falling she pushed the ball out from under her. The other teams was yelling and screaming as the Brewers scored. They wanted a foul, but the ref did not see it that way. It was at this point one of the players started to complain that Jamie was getting special treatment because she was a girl. That the ref was not going to call a foul on her because of that. It only got worse after Jamie got hacked from behind in the corner. It was an innocent foul, she just has her heal stepped on, but the foul was called. The other team was livid, and suggested that the only reason it was a foul was because she is a girl.
Super Sub Justin did not come to play soccer tonight, but late in the game he decided it was time to get out onto the field. He worked hard in the corner to win the ball and once he got it he turned into the box, the ball got a way from him and bit and Andy the Bearded one, stoled the goal from him and tapped it in with the outside of the right foot. Justin would not step on the field for the rest of the game.
Kent would get the go ahead goal within the last few minutes of the game. He played coach for a minute and pulled Joe off the field and subbed him self on. Then went ahead and found the ball at his feet and he shoved it past the goal keeper to make it 10 to 9. He then subbed off and the the defence hold the ball for the last minute of the game for the win.
The caterer is off to Mexico again and will miss next week's game. Seems like his mexico wife is good with it his American wife is not.
Jamie learned what a dollar is. She had to American coin dollars that she thought were foreign coin, but turned out to be one Sacagawea and another a presidential dollar.
Sunny was drinking water because he bought a speedo and wants to make sure he fits into it by summer.
One player that does not want to be named, once played a soccer game on LSD. He scored one goal, had one assist and blew out his ACL all withing a few minutes of playing. This was also the first time he played for that team and might have been his last.
Lastly we talked about noodles and it turns out you have to stretch the glutton. Now you stretch the glutton and not the gluteus maximus. Some how this all became about while talking about soup. Andy, the bearded one could not follow this conversation he just kept thinking about soup.

Sunday 10/1 canceled game
The traveling scientist doesn’t read his email. As a result he showed up 30 minutes prior to kickoff and warmed up by himself. At 1055 he texted me to ask if the game had been canceled. On a positive note, he got all the beer tickets for both teams.
10/9 Sunday Soccer
Great Sunday night game for the Dune Puma's. The brewers scored seven goals through out the game and let in two late goals in the second half.

Highlights from behind the goal. We had a lot of goals and he had a lot of saves.
Nick @ 820 shot the ball right into the keepers face
