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.


  • Ouch. Sign you’re getting old. One of my players talking about 1 of my team emails she read: “You’re too old to use LOL. That’s just weird” #
  • One of the coolest things at our soccer fields? Free Wifi. So easy to setup – if you can get DSL in your shed/stand – 1 router = WiFi! #
  • So we’re facing the possibility of washed out weekend #5. Hoping sun & lots of wind 2day will dry the fields out PDQ. But not counting on it #
  • Morning tweeps! Had a fun practice in the rain/mud last night. Really helps u learn to strike the ball right – wet ball is VERY unforgiving. #
  • Soccer practice in the rain – sweet! May have to rethink focus on shooting though. Never fun when it’s wet. But makes them strike it right! #
  • Saw wildest thing @ son’s U12 game last nite-Ref shows red 4 hard keeper challenge on free ball in air-Player leaves-Ref changes mind=yellow #
  • Altidore with the hat trick! #
  • RT @ChrisWaluk: Wow, country w/most World Cup ticket requests (other than host South Africa) is the USA according to FIFA. Hurray US soccer! #
  • I used 2 hate writing documentation when I got paid for it. Now I’m doing it for free as a volunteer. Updating soccer league guidelines. Fun #
  • No Doubt RT @scooter42481: And the rain wins again. I am giving mother nature a red card and the finger. I am sick of canceled soccer games. #
  • Looking at our weather forecast. Rain Wed, Thu, and Fri. You cannot be serious. 4 weekends washed out, more clearly to come. Sigh. #
  • RT @CoachLok: Coaches want all players to give”100%”effort all the time. Do those same coaches give 100% to*each*players’ development? #
  • RT @ToddSullivan: The greatest soccer coach ever-read the letter-guess what? got him fired. PC Nazi’s strike again… http://bit.ly/1YJmoo #
  • How sweet would it have been if the USMNT beat El Salvador as time wound down with a bicycle kick into an open net. But it was not to be. #
  • Kids out of school today, so we’re off to the zoo in this unusual sunny and warm weather :) Might even be able to practice 2nite! #
