A new team to play on

So I am a memeber of a soccer team. This is completely separate from the team I coach. Plus, everyone leaves early from work to go play. So it literally gets me out of hte office.

Every Town Council in Swaziland has team that competes in the Mulicipal Games once a year. Since my office is in the Town Council building I qualify to be on the team. Most of the members of the team are trash collectors of the city.

They have a coach so I just play.

I am not in very good game shape but can play just fine, but same thing as when I was playing before I am pretty much as good as the palyers, but without the fancy moves but slow. But the one good thing about this team is that most of them aren't in very good shape either. So I am probably on the high end of the fitness on this team.

I can't even hope to keep up with the Black Terrors speed and stamina wise. But I do school my players all the time on defense.
