  • 1 more month indoor then we play outdoor if weather permits. Can't wait to play outdoors again. I am playing twice a week indoor. 5 a sise and 7 a side.

    • Met a couple girls at a bar on Friday night who play soccer in the area. Told them I was good. Got a call from one of them tonight to play on one of their coed 3v3 teams on a pretty small indoor pitch. Game was pretty even for the first 5-7 minutes. Then I got on the pitch, and by the time I subbed out maybe 5 minutes later it was over. Ended up winning like 23-6. I was a little off, but man it was fun to play again, and I was without a doubt the best person out there even though I haven't touched a ball in almost 18 months. Had a backheel assist, was splitting the defense from my defensive area with balls to send a teammate through on goal. My only issue was the altitude and smoking meant I could barely stay out there for long. Glad I'm gonna be back playing again though. Turned to the girl who invited me after the game and was like "told you I was good." Extremely satisfying because I'm sure most people overrate their own abilities, but I'm always pretty realistic. When I heard it was coed 3v3 I said that I'm probably a lot better than that level of competition.

      • I'm more interested in hearing about which physical activities took place after the game...

        • None, unfortunately, because I have to be up at 4am and haven't even finished packing yet.

                Idk, I've had sex with more girls than the number of football teams I've been on and I needed a new team. Plus, the one who was really into me isn't super attractive, but if I get into playing in a coed league there will be a lot more girls. And I'm very good for the level I play at. I'm still convinced I would have been a low level professional if I grew up somewhere like England/Spain/Germany, but I pretty much had to develop without coaching. It all came from playing a LOT, kicking the ball against a wall to get decent control (and ruining a lot of balls), and being an unselfish player who preferred to get an assist than score.

                • How do you play 3 v 3? Last time I played with 3 v 3 or 4 v 4 was at school; typically on basketball courts, without goalkeeper of course.

                        yeah, it's a small indoor pitch. A little bigger than a basketball court, and there are no keepers. It's not in a gym though, it is on that fake indoor turf stuff with a bigger pitch in the same complex.

                        • How big is the net? Are people allowed to block it?

                          I played this bullshit pickup game a few times where there were very small nets but people kept covering the whole thing up which was against the rules in theory.
