WIWW & That One Time I Got Kicked out of a Soccer Game

Hiiiii!!!!! 


I'm sporting the clown lips again - I think I'm getting used to them [even starting to like them, but don't tell].


So I used to play soccer a long, long time ago. I was pretty awful at it, and thought I'd tell you all a story that proves it.


I almost always played defense – I was awful at dribbling (I’m seriously lacking in the coordination department – always have been), and defender was the easiest place for the coach to put me. My team was pretty good, so I almost never saw the ball. 

In one particular game, I decided that, since the ball was on the other side of the field, it would be a good idea to practice my gymnastics (unfortunately I wasn’t any good at that sport, either). I started doing cartwheels around the goal box. All of a sudden, I heard whistles being blown and my name being shouted from the sidelines. “ALYX! WHAT ARE YOU DOING? GET OFF THE FIELD, [Insert teammate’s name here] IS GOING IN FOR YOU!” 

Oops. I guess doing gymnastics in the middle of a soccer game is frowned upon.

Stay tuned for part 2: The Time I Scored a Goal for the Other Team

Have you guys ever had an experience like that? Or am I the only one who sucked at sports and did ridiculous things?

Oh I hear you! Sports are definitely not my thing either. I feel that I was more made to spectate ;)

haha I think I only did gymnastics on the field after scoring goals--I normally played left or center mid.

I was also a referee and DID card some players off the field a few times. haha

B said...

Dude. You scored a goal for the other team?! LULZ!

I was never a big soccer gal. I was always into softball and basketball. ALWAYS.

I was also always the girl on the sports who fouled the most. Not purposely so, but I always seemed to catch a foul or two in a respective game. Our team was good though, so we all did it at one time or another.

However, I did manage to make an impossible shot with NO glasses because some girl fouled me during that same game and broke them. EPIC WIN!

Sometimes I forget that people can see me, and I do stuff like that. Or do the tombstone whistle while sitting in a cubicle. I feel ya.

Once, I was playing softball and was out in right field (right? is that the one behind first base? maybe it's left...) and I started dancing. The ball never came to me anyway. But then I looked up and everyone was gone. The inning was changing and I was the only one still in the field. And I was dancing.

You are hilarious! I played softball when I was a kid, and I never did things like that BUT I did get hit every time I was up to bat! And it was coach pitch.....almost like he was aiming for me! Hahahahaha but I always got to first base hahahaha

Tiffany said...

Hahaha I used to play field hockey, and then when I was running I pretended I was flying, with long stretched steps. One day somebody who was watching by the side told me I was always ran dreamy/galloping. Up until then I always thought nobody had noticed whaha.

Alex Butts said...

hahahaha that reminds me of those people on my softball team in 3rd grade that would sit in the outfield and pick flowers

Kym ((bitty)) said...

haha! i hope you were really young when this happened...but all i can picture is a 16 year old alyx cartwheeling around the soccer field. :)

btw, i love the high wasted jeans. they somehow, amazingly, make you look even taller! the red lip is great too! i know it takes some getting used to - i use a red lip stain and i felt like a clown at first too. trust me, you look a million trillion times better than any clown i've ever seen. in a good, non-clowny way that is.

I was terrible at sports. I hated when it came time for sports in PE because I almost always made a fool of myself.

Kelly said...

You look awesome! You're rocking those jeans and the red lips for sure.

That's a hilarious story. I played soccer too but I was forward. I found defense hard, to be honest. hahah

Keri said...

You ROCK that lipstick, girl!

And...HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I suck at sports, so I never joined a team therefore I have no stories like that. :) Yours is hilarious, though!

his little Lady said...

Nothing to do with soccer, but you're convincing me I need to get some jeans from Alloy.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

You look completely adorable! Just add a basket and you're ready for an Easter parade!

I'm loving those trouser pants! :) I played soccer when I was little... My mom tells stories of watching butterflies and holding hands with my little friend, skipping across the field. But then soccer ended after elementary where I grew up. Boo.

Nice pants !! love your outfit ! if you want we can follow each others , give me your answer on my blog ! xx

Sara Louise said...

I can't possibly understand why the coach would have wanted to take you out! Surely your cartwheels would have been a great distraction technique for the other team :)
Love the jeans!
