A great Saturday here at The Outpost! While I was at soccer last night, The VP figured out why I couldn't log in to my other blog. Turns out the McAfee firewall is too thorough to let Moveable Type work properly. A minor adjustment...and all is well.
Also last night at soccer...I got called a "bitch" by a young fellow on the other team. We got in a pushing match while fighting for the ball, and I got in the last shot before the ref blew the whistle. He spent the next few minutes calling me names, but that came to an abrupt end when Chris plastered him against the boards. Chris is a gentle giant sort of guy. He's tall, strong, and has a decided distaste for anyone picking on women. Chris was thoughtful enough to overlook the fact that I had provoked the guy.
At the end of the game (7-4 victory for us), this same angry young fellow asked the ref if the sexual favors (apparently from our team) were worth it. Yep, this is co-ed recreational soccer. What class. I really wanted to suggest that just because he could only get barn animals to look at his small appendage was no reason to get upset with the ref...but I didn't. I can't wait to play that team again. I'm going to try to get this guy so angry that he gets ejected before the end of the first half.
One must always have goals.
