Match Report: PART I – The Game

It was a dark and stormy morning that the (top of the ladder )O35 2’s took to the field against Jamo. It was a home game and the Cauldron was ready for action.

The first 20 saw us flexing our attacking muscle, but we were also giving Jamo the room to attack as well. Once we readjusted our efforts, the game was more balanced and easier to manage for us 🙂

The first half saw a number of great strikes, from our attack, deflected by a talented** keeper.

** talented but not in the same league as our keepers. Please read chapter 7 -10 of ‘Awesome Keeper’s of the 21st Century’ and chapters 3 – 4 of ‘From Perfect to Perfection, HMFY’ for my thoughts about our keepers.

GB was able to break the deadlock with a mono-inspired-knock into the back of the net.

The second half provided even better soccer as we fought against the instinct to play through-balls and concentrated on linking play (with 5 foot balls). It was a handful but the team managed it.

The second half saw two new players onto the score sheet for the season. Yours truly got to capitalise on the teams efforts with 2 goals. I was hopeful for a third goal with a tops link-up with Crank, but it was not to be today.

[something about the opposition scoring, nah]

I’ll finish off by tipping my hat to the hard work that was completed by the team today. Thanks also to Frankie for making it back from Hollywood (nice full stretch effort today!).

PART II – The Colgate Ad

Playing at right half and running up the sideline at the only speed he knows (full!) to get into position, Bruce stopped in his tracks. As the story is told, a beam of light lit up the ball that was travelling in the air toward him. Bruce describes that a calmness came over him, as he brought the ball (with the light still upon it), to the ground. He touched the ball forward and then the beam of light moved to the goals to where he needed get the ball. Not questioning the situation, for all its possible meanings, he struck the ball … and the net rattled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was later reported that Bruce’s winning war cry was heard by locals as far away as Warrimoo and Lapstone, with a questionable report from a fellow in Parramatta. And the smile was said to have been the whitest, brightest set of white pearly’s ever seen.

And the team loved every second of the goal and celebration!

Bruce reports that he has received an offer from Colgate to do an ad … if he can replicate ‘the smile’. Bruce says that he is awaiting all offers before deciding.
