.::SKETCH-SOCCER::.


When I get older, I will be stronger,
They'll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back

The Football Season is here.

Football season is when, almost everyone in our football team, (those days *sigh) used to metamorph into Zidane and Beckham. That's exactly the days we have more casualties and we walk around limping in the campus - "Survival of the most Idiotic" . Yes, we have already proved that in our math class, theoretically, but then again proving it on a practical level is pretty much easy, when playing football.All you gotta do is try and block someone, who is trying to break the land speed record with a football, or tackle their best guy..Then... you are PWNED!.

Bestowed upon me by my team mates is the position of the goal keeper. A very diplomatic position, where I deal with the opposition striker diplomatically!
I took charge of that position because...as I said in my previous post..I don't like close body contact..with the guys!

"Only thing I got straight in life is my orientation"-Sorcerer the Goal Keeper!

How we wished for mixed football..no?

When the striker comes to you with the ball, Chant...Chant..very very hard!! and leave the rest to your karma.

Goal keepers has to do be the BINKY the Clown at times. These times are called as PENALTY shots. Here the goal keeper has to assume a position, knees bent and pretend having a constipation, then wave the hands in the air like a retard. This position or tribal dance move is actually done to freak out the striker; unfortunately..so far.. none seems to appreciate the real talent.
*Sigh


Things I learned during those days!

1)Playing football in the rain is one thing, making you swim in pool of rain water by an ingenious tackle ...priceless!!

2)When you shoot the ball, aim for the balls!

3)Theres only 2 words in football. FCUK and GOAL

4)When someone runs alongside you, use his shoulders to support yourself when dribbling the ball.

5)There is nothing like "Passing the ball" if you have it, your aim is opposite goal keeper.

6)Corner kicks are recipe for a major stampede.Always stand clear of fat guys.

7)Never flirt with the girl friend of opposition striker.

8)B.O is an offence mechanism.

9)If your team has good players, a goal keeper can grow a root.

10) Never dedicate a goal for opposite team captain's sister unless you are sick and tired of your own life.
