Game #7:      Bent Like Beckham:    3      Jimmy Hat Tricks:   6


Bent Like Beckham took to the pitch for their first of two games on Sunday against League leaders, the Jimmy Hat Tricks with hopes of claiming the Spring 2007 champion T-Shirts.   Their hopes were swiftly dashed when the Hat Tricks took to the pitch, led by our old nemesis, Side Show Bobbito, wearing their 2006 champion T-Shirts. 

Bent Like Beckham gave the Hat Tricks all they could handle.  Unfortunately, Jimmy gave Beckham way more than they could handle and sent the Bent side home in tears, their dreams of a championship dashed. 

Game Highlights:

1.       The debut of future Bent Like Beckham all stars Fabiola (“Fabio, Simply Fabulous, Fabby Fabby 2 by 4”) and Nick (“Nickelodeon, Little Nicky, Saint Nick`)

2-4.   Brian’s three goals.   If only he had tried a little harder and got 7 goals, we would have won this one.  Thanks anyway, Brian.

5.                 That time Fabby punched Tom in the face.  That really was pretty funny.

6.                 Summer had a double header.   


Really, that was about it for highlights. 


If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the rest of this soccer letter is 6350 words long.



Nobody knows why Tony keeps doing this.  Frankly, it makes all of us a bit uncomfortable.


When this shot was taken, Brian had two goals and had struck the goal post twice.  Summer started a pool on the sideline over whether Brian would get a goal post hat trick before he got his goal hat trick.  It turns out he got both at the same time when he ripped this shot over the keeper’s shoulder, off the far post and into the   GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLL!!!!!

It is not easy to read the sign on the fence behind Tom, but it says “Alberta Society For Persons With Disabilities.”   Lucky for us, Tom got a day pass and could play with us.


It’s true, the field actually is tilted.  There is a reason why it always feels like you are running uphill.


Can you spot the ball in this picture --   Hint – it`s silver and it is hitting Nick in the ass at about 300 miles per hour.   Tom just said that he is glad that Tracy is kicking someone else`s ass for a change.


Laura brilliantly blocks a shot without even looking.  Stuart says he would have had it anyway and that Laura`s effort was neither necessary nor appreciated.


In Other Soccer News:

·               In Touch Magazine reports that David Beckham is making way way way way way way way too much money.  Here is one of the many ways that Posh is pissing away her husband`s fortune:

Victoria designed a $500,000 closet for her new L.A. home. It supposedly features a leather floor, Baccarat crystal chandelier, $80,000 Andy Warhol shoe print, a computer that tracks when she wears items of clothing and a camera to give her a 360-degree "cat scan" of her outfit before she steps out.

Yes, that`s right.  Posh`s closet has a LEATHER FLOOR.  And a fucking CHANDELIER. 

·               As of this writing, Sofia Loren has yet to gear down in honour of Napoli`s ascension to the top division of the Italian soccer league.  Thank God for small miracles.

·               The USA won the Gold Cup apparently. 

·               Who cares.
