11th Anniversary & Another Game
Another soccer game, this time in Cobleskill, 45 minutes away. As I drove through town, I noticed this display in honor of the 11th Anniversary of the destruction of the Twin Towers in NYC. I thought, "awww, I wish I could stop and take a picture", but there was a lot of traffic and I was going to be late for the beginning of the game if I stopped, so I continued on.
Drive to the field where they played last year. Wrong field. Stop and ask directions. Drive to the new field, without getting lost, I might add and arrive about 4:32, two minutes past start time. Not a soul there. Stop and ask someone where the game is.
"Oh, that game isn't going to start until 6:30". So I was really 1 hour, 58 minutes early. humph!
Called the soccer player. He said, "you mean you're not staying to watch me play?"
So. Go home or hang out till the game? Find a playground so the two little ones would have something to do for the next two hours? Then find somewhere to get them some dinner?
I caved. Heading back through town I stopped to get some pics of the memorial display.
We found a great playground where I took a gazillion pics.
We stopped at Subway for dinner sandwiches.
We got to the game on time.
I left 20 minutes before the end and we were ahead by 3 points.
So it was a long, but not unpleasant afternoon. But one I don't want to repeat in the near future.
