Referee

KJ Makes Big Save to Keep Lady Lizards in the Game!

Look Who's the Referee!



Coach Claire Congrats KJ for keeping the game tied up!


KJ had a make-up game today (yesterday's opponents never showed up; they must have heard how good our goalie was!). Today, no ref showed up. They asked T-bone if she wanted to make a quick $25 bucks. I thought she did a pretty good job. Apparently, the other team didn't think so. One of the mom's didn't know that the ref was my daughter and she was totally talking smack. Give me a freakin break! It's a bunch of 8 and 9 year old little girls. Not the national championships! I couldn't stand it anymore and very nicely laughed and said, "well, she's only 13." This mother gave me an earful on how this game was obviously one-sided and totally inconsistent. Inconsistent? One-sided? Out of sisterly "love" T did her very best to make KJ miserable. Twice T called a penalty on KJ's team for stepping in the crease which results in a free shot. One of those shots KJ missed so the opposing team scored. Then, I overheard another little girl telling her parents, "I heard that Ref is the Goalie's Big Sister!!!!" Again, give me a freakin' break! T was really funny because instead of just calling the penalty, she tried to be really sweet to the girls and she would say, "Sorry! Number 8 but you ...." Chris tried to tell her, just make the damn call!!! She also said some of the girls got really mouthy w/ her. So, all evening KJ's been telling T that she's a "bad ref." Unfortunately, w/ KJ's little speech impediment, it sounded more like she had "bad breath."

Seems like no matter what you do these days it pisses someone off, they are usually the loudest too!!! Funny about the squirrel, and we can totally relate about the nests, we have two in our front bush...they are empty now but when the were full of baby birds OMG they can be very loud!
