Life's amazing timing 14 balls 19 players

So I have a try out for the team on Saturday and have opened practice to any player who is interested in making the team. Kind of pre-try out tryout.

A couple of weeks ago, I helped the team get a sponsorship and which partially paid for training soccer balls and league fees. So I had ordered 14 cheap not very good soccer balls, I went with quantity over quality. They arrived today and then I went to practice.

I showed up at the usual 5pm and only a couple of people then they just started flowing in. equaling a total of 19 players, 9 are registered the rest are maybes to the team.

I normally only have 2 or 3 balls at practice and usually only 5 to 10 players.

So life's timing turned out to be amazing with so many balls and players.

A day off on Fri from soccer then Try Outs on Sat and the biggest game of the season on Sun.

EXCITING. And I really love presssure. It is funny how I lived with it for years working in movies, and the move to Africa has been a relaxing event until this game came around and I feel the difference, Ah, presssure/stress got to love it and hate it at the sametime
