There's No 'Sorry' In Soccer!!
Sound familiar? Yep! It did to me too!
“There’s no crying in baseball!” ~A League of Their Own, Film (1992)
Only, the new phrase came from the mouth of my youngest child as he chastised his older brother for apologizing profusely during a friendly random scrimmage this afternoon at his practice. The eldest had joined in at the request of the coach to increase numbers as there were a couple of no-shows (slackers).
The entire exercise further exhibited to me (and any passerby) the drastic differences in my two boys. The musician playing against the little jocks in training was quite a sight and blatantly exemplified the monumental differences between these two children born of the same genetics.
The oldest said it more then once by the way: “Sorry! Sorry! Oops, sorry!” I confess. I was already laughing at him … not openly, but to myself.
I don’t know if the little one was tired of hearing it or frustrated or blatantly embarrassed but he finally had enough as he wheeled on his brother, “THERE’S NO ‘SORRY’ IN SOCCER!!!”
Quite a catchy slogan if you ask me.
