This time of the year means different things to different people. School starting, football season, cooler weather, etc. For most of my life, this time of year has meant one thing above all else… soccer season. Until I graduated college, being a soccer player was one of the ways I defined myself. It was just part of who I was. So I loved this time of year more than any other time. It has been 10 years since I graduated college. I no longer define myself as a soccer player, but still love this time of year. Now I have kids that are old enough to play and once again… it’s soccer season.
Today the whole family went to a University of Utah Women’s soccer game. I love going to the games. I don’t get quite as nostalgic as I used to. I guess I really am getting old. However, the games will always bring back good memories and besides that, they are just fun to watch. It was a great game and a good win for the Utes.
Happy Fall and soccer season to everyone.
