For those of you not following me on Twitter (I’m @soccerdad), here’s a peek at my Tweets for the past week. Clearly I tweet too much.


  • Wondering where the day went. Been crazy. My #followfriday will have 2 be on Saturday. Just too tired to focus. Have a great weekend tweeps! #
  • Ugh. Fri/Sat matches rained out AGAIN. 3rd weekend this season. 80+ matches to reschedule which is 3 wknds worth for our league. FUN! #
  • HAHAHA So true RT @timrohrer: Working on a strategy for tonight’s U5 soccer game. I’m thinking of going with “the swarm” offense. #
  • Cannot believe it’s raining AGAIN. Got to practice indoors tonight. Oh the pain. Coach got schooled often :) Good thing! #
  • I’ve neglected my Google Reader for a long time. Time to clean it out and dust it off I think #
  • HAHAHA So true RT @dogwalkblog: @stanleytang a social media guru with humility.. Now, THAT’S worth a follow! #
  • RT @BrianBaute: Kierstin was excited to hear I might “win the pool.” She was less excited after learning it’s not a pool she could swim in. #
  • Wow – I’m almost at 1,500 updates. I gotta get out more. #
  • Definition of futility: Trying to explain to parents why the saturated and muddy soccer fields are closed when it’s sunny outside. #
  • LOVE the new more button 4 Twitter – no more page reloads – just include more tweets below. Kind of like Facebook. How ironic :) #
  • HAHAHA RT @CoachLok: best intro youth sport is soccer.kids run around,the ball accidentally hits their foot & they think they almost scored! #
  • New Facebook-epic FAIL? One poll is currently 17k for 237k against. Nobody likes change, but this goes beyond getting comfortable w/the new #
  • Definition of ‘NotGonnaHappen’ It’s 65F, sunny, gorgeous. All homework done. Kids outside playing start to pack up to watch a movie. NOT! #
  • It’s very warm, clear blue skies, sun is shining bright. STILL can’t practice – fields splash like a lake and are completely saturated. Sigh #
  • Joys of being a soccer registrar. Send coaches email for > a week ‘Need final changes NOW’. Send big reg file in-coach sends 2 more changes #
  • Same Here RT @gfxman: I’ve almost given up on Facebook-I liked the prior one – my feed is so full of junk I cannot find the “news” any more #
  • FAIL RT @CoffeeWithChris: local car dealer say they have a new “internet coordinator” & “great new website” while asking to get email @ AOL! #
  • Morning tweeps! Hoping to get lots done today. Yesterday – EPIC Fail on that front. Figured I’d share an oldie but goodie http://is.gd/nQSH #
  • Crazy RT @danielCK @roxeteer: Kid walks to soccer practice, gets picked up by police (yes, in America): http://tinyurl.com/d4zj9r #
  • Checking out Likaholix thanks to @problogger Interesting stuff… #
  • When U REALLY hope your kid’s coach has a great sense of humor RT @jahorne: Charlotte’s soccer tem just TPed the coach’s car. His SQUAD car. #
  • Trying out WP Greet Box at OTP. VERY well written plugin. Great way to engage w/new visitors based on where they came from http://is.gd/12cW #

  • It’s still raining. Complex has been closed since Friday. We’ll be lucky to get it open by this Friday AND it may rain Thursday night. Fun. #
  • And there was much rejoicing! Spring soccer registration is processed, checked, tweaked, formatted, and off to the state. Finally! #fb #
  • An Iraqi player getting shot has nothing to do with soccer catching on in the US. I’ve seen that go by MANY times in the twitstream. Sad. #
  • You have got to be kidding. The Wall St Journal published this moron’s article about Soccer Ruining America? http://is.gd/nxn8 #
  • U know you’ve had 2 much rain when your fields look like this. http://is.gd/nx0i Pic is from last yr. Fields looked identical this weekend. #
  • Morning all! Going to have LOTS of time to do league admin stuff. If our fields dry out by Thursday I’ll be shocked. LOTS of reschedule 2 do #
