Night Ride To A Game

It’s tournament time for high school soccer.  It’s the only sport I played growing up and stopped at age 51.  I also spent 40 years coaching at different levels, so I guess you could call me “avid.”

There were three games last night and I had to choose.  My alma mata was playing, one of the schools I coached and a really good local team.  I chose the really good team to ride my bike to watch, Dartmouth High, and wasn’t disappointed.

At the half it was 3-0 and early in the second 40, Dartmouth got their fourth.  I was feeling the beginnings of rain coming on and decided to leave early for the 7 mile ride home.  I got a little wet but not bad.  Riding through the city I could see driver eyeing me and couldn’t help wondering if they were envious of me riding in the soft rain on a mild evening , or thinking, “oh that poor guy. He must have lost his drivers license.”
