Creating Soccer Teams

Creating Soccer Teams

A Chapter by Dave Brown

The old lady who drank too much brew

Eventually had children numbered to twenty-two

With an alcoholic fog in her head, she

Entertained extra often, gentlemen in her bed

 

Her children all leaned toward sports

Eventually forming two soccer teams, well of sorts

Ranging in age from three to twenty-four

Their fans thought they were to adore

 

With their league composed of just two teams

Extra competition seemed just in their dreams

T’was then appeared a second lady of brew

Who also fielded another group of twenty-two

 

Each year a championship is played, and

The champion's awarded a mounted dragon’s head

But neither mother has yet watched a game

Being busily producing more team mates in bed

 

Then round the country of England et’all

A mania began for all ages football

Pubs were soon overflowing with Ladies of brew

Determined to produce more of those twenty-two

 

All sports have been canceled except now soccer

In spite of the occasional cricket playing squaker

And a new national hero has appeared

Three yr. old Timmy now worldwide endeared

 

In his new Lamborghini he’ll do a fly by

The local constab’ always turn a blind eye

Male fans flock watching this child of fame

But no Mothers yet at any ball game

The days of big families and rows upon rows of football boots. I still remember playing twenty aside where the rules usually went out the window. Kids have lost out to organised sport now, computer games and pampered lives. That old lady knew a thing or three or four.

definitely a different life style now
Oh gosh, I've been to so many games but my children have fallen unti different sports now.
But soccer, and those moms, and how serious and passionate about the game... it's nuts.
I personally stopped at two so the best I can do is field a badminton team or tennis doubles
Maybe figure skating. This feels like a good pub song.

This feels like the modern "soccer mom" update to the Hatfields & McCoys . . . those old gun-totin' outlaw families that were constantly feuding in the Ozarks for generations. I guess it's not nice to shoot your neighbors up north . . . so kick 'em in the crotch, instead! I can see where you're going with this, but you didn't take it quite as far as you usually do! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I'm also female, which means there's no need to be consistent with my hogwash!
