Laughter brings good luck!

I'm currently studying English.
I still have no confidence about my English skills.
So,you might find odd sentences in my writing.
But please let it pass with a smile!
You know,laughter brings good luck!

Lost the game...
0


    I played a soccer game last night. ...but we lost the game. The opposite team has some great players and is quite strong so it's natural that we can't win the game. Most members of our team are beginners. I'm also a beginner who have been playing soccer for four years. However,some players of the opposite team used to play in a women's pro soccer team. Actually,their playing was spectacular.

    Last night,I played behind the striker. I usually play as a center forward but have some opportunities to play behind the striker lately. It's really difficult to judge the situation in a game but I can touch the ball a lot when I play behind the striker. It's really interesting. So,I like playing behind the striker more than a center forward.

    I don't know whether women's soccer is common or not in foreign countries. I can't say it's really popular in Japan. There are still few environments of playing soccer for women. But fortunately,my home town Shizuoka is really famous for soccer and there are some women's soccer teams. I feel really happy every time I play soccer even if we lost the game.

    We already played 10 games in the women's league and won only 4 games. I got 3 goals until now. We have more two games in the rest of this season.
    I hope to get some goals in the rest of games.

    Oh, I just typed this long explanation about soccer and soccer moms and women playing sports for fun and it just disappeared! oops!

    Anyway, I was saying that mostly men play soccer for fun as adults.

    And there's this term 'soccer mom' for women who have kids that play soccer. Soccer moms are supposed to be very bad drivers and you can usually spot them because they have a sticker of a soccer ball on the back of their minivan or SUV.

    When it comes to kids, soccer is very popular with both boys and girls. I'd say it's much more even gender-wise than baseball (which is mostly boys).

    I mentioned that hockey is pretty popular, too. Sarah Palin, a vice presidential candidate in the 2008 election, was a "hockey mom" (her kids played hockey).

    I know of more adult women playing hockey than soccer, personally. My sister was on a women's league once. My brother is on a men's league. I think my sister has played with them before. There is a man we know who plays on the team and his wife plays with them, too! She's the goalie, and she wears a lot of equipment, so the men on the other team usually don't realize they are playing against a woman.

    For slang like 'soccer mom' you can try using urbandictionary.com. It's a pretty good site, but some of the information is incorrect sometimes and even vulgar! So be careful using it!

    It's very neat that you play soccer! Good luck!

    I've heard something about "soccer mom" before,and I used to be a "soccer mom" driving a minivan. I don't know whether my driving was bad or not ;)
    There are lots of "soccer mom" in Japan but most of them don't play soccer. The case like me is really rare.

    In Japan,volleyball is quite popular for women. I also belong to the women's volleyball team and have been playing for 10 years. The oldest player in our team is almost 70 years old =)

    Incidentally,I've played unihoc which is like hockey before. Hockey isn't common in Japan,but players of unihoc are increasing lately.
