Alexander Alumni Soccer Game

The 2010 edition of the Alexander Alumni Soccer Game was on Saturday.  While I stay pretty fit, this game always hurts some.  Running a 5k in a straight line or biking, even on trails, does not prepare your body for the impacts, turns, and stops of a soccer match.

On top of that, hits and impacts with the ground just hurt a lot more than I remember.  I'll spare you the picture of the strawberry on my back side.  Took a hard hit to the ankle.  No subs means you play through the pain.
While technically my side lost the match, I was able to walk away from the game.  Win?  We'll do it again next year.
