For the Love of the Game

The soccer season is officially upon us, beginning for me yesterday when I received my initiation as a highschool referee in a JV & varsity double header.  As a refereeing effort, the varsity game (in which I was probably fortunate to only be on the line) might charitably be called a disaster - but at least no unjust goals were awarded or denied, and the clearly better team won.  At some point I would like to play again, and probably coach at some point, but for now it's just good to be near, to be part of the beautiful game - even when some particular matches are fairly ugly.
