Look out for my mad goalie skillz!
So just because it's one meeeelion degrees out, that doesn't mean we're not going to play soccer for hours on end. This picture is a friendly game with just our group, but later, we had a multitude of friendly games with some of the community men. I'm here to tell you that Mexicans don't mess around when it comes to soccer -- playing on "grass" and wearing "pads" is for gringo sissies. I have the bruises to prove it -- at first I thought it was just dirt, but after I showered I realized it was not. The guys were soooo nice though, and always apologized after sending a ball hurtling towards my body at about 65 miles per hour.
