7.5 miles. Hood Route to Legacy Trail and back. In the rain. Not a mist, not a drizzle, not a downpour, no lightning, no thunder, just constant easy rain. Not that bad, really.
I took the boys to watch the Venice High girls soccer game last night (Tommy's whole soccer team went.). A win would have put them in the state championship tournament, but they lost to St. Pete, in the 7th round of a shootout. What a crazy game. I mean, even without my home team bias, it was just a great soccer game to watch. A couple of things:
1. First time I have ever seen someone get a blue card. Venice played short handed for the last 12 minutes of regulation and all 20 minutes of overtime.
2. At the end of every game decided by a shootout I have ever seen, every fan, every coach, and every player I have ever heard says "It's a shame it had to end like this." If we ALL feel that way, why does it have to end like this? You would think something could be done. I mean, I'm the first guy to complain about stuff without offering solutions. But this seems ENTIRELY FIXABLE.
