Pete's Log: goooo ponytails!Entry #457, Sun, September 24, 2000, 19:30 EST (Sports and Athletics)
(posted when I was 22 years old.)
I decided today to go watch an ND team that is doing well. Irish Women's Soccer team is ranked #1. Actually, a main reason for going was just to spend some quiet time outside. Anne showed up at the end of the first half. We discussed soccer and high school sports and such.
I was rather impressed by our team. They dominated the game. They played Pittsburgh, and the ball spent most of the game on the Pittsburgh side of the field. The only problem I saw was that we have this tendency of kicking the ball straight into the hands of the other team's goalkeeper. But that's ok. We ended up winning 1-0. Our score could've been much higher. So now the Notre Dame women's soccer team is 9 and 0. Props to them. I think I'll try to see a few more of their games.
I'm enjoying watching soccer again, I've seen quite a bit of it lately. The whole olympics thing has given me a good chance to see some, and then the ND game. However, I'm still holding a grudge against the ND men's soccer team. I had some less than ideal experiences with members of that team my freshman year (including my first roommate) and even though they're probably all graduated by now, I'm still not willing to go to their games. Besides, the women's team is #1, the men's team isn't.
