“Just give me the damn ball!”

Filed under: Fun — Lex @ 6:57 am

The 4-year-old daughter of one of our co-workers scored five — count ’em, five — goals in a soccer game this past weekend.

How? Well, for one thing, every time one of her teammates tried to get the ball from her, she elbowed ’em away. Apparently it’s not a penalty if you elbow your own teammate.

As for me, I didn’t know that the laws of Newtonian physics even made it possible for a total of five goals to be scored in a soccer game. Which is another way of saying that I find the game boring. But my own 4-year-old might be playing sometime soon, so I guess I should get used to it.

I’ll advise her, however, against elbowing her own teammates.
