Got more good news that only affects me!
Well, as you all (dogstile) know, I decided to make my own team. Last time I posted I think we only had me and my 2 friends, a back (Tom) and a mid/front (Keith). Well, we went down on Sunday to practice with other teams to see where we would start for next season in terms of divisions and all that when me and tom realized that there was a few players here who weren't on a team. Usually only really good players or really dumb/cocky players go down to the field on Sunday where we go. It's basically tourney style only not that good.
Anyway, right away I could tell that one of the players who wasn't on a team was good. He had that look about him that just made me wonder. Not a look like jersey and good gun or that shit. Any spoiled 12 year old can get those things. This guy was different somehow so I watched him play for a while. He wasn't as good as I hoped, sadly, but the good news is he is still legit and can help our team in making as of right now. I asked him to join and he refused. I have no idea why he did, maybe he didn't know that I'm legit or something like that.
For some reason, I really wanted this guy on our team, so I offered to play him one on one. Now, as everyone should know, front players pretty much suck ass at one on ones. Still, I thought it might prove something to him. He accepted and I embarrassed him three times in a best of 5. Turns out that wasn't such a good idea. He was one of those bastards with a huge ego (not the gun) and thinks hes the best obviously.
But that's when the good part comes. One of the other "free agents" saw me play against him and liked the way I play. Now, normally I assume that anyone who gets all giddy and asks to join a team is a complete joke. Luckily, I'm not an asshole to their face, so I told him I will watch him play for a few games.
And oh my god he was insane. One of the best mids I've ever seen who isn't on a team. It almost scared me. So, very professionally I said, "WOW! YOU'RE SICK! YOU'RE ON THE TEAM!".
Still looking for 2 or 3 more so we can do 5s and 3s. But I think next season we will make some noise and by the 5th season I'm predicting DII if not DI. Going good so far and still have a long time to find more players.
