Oh balls

Dear County Soccer Association:

While I have not appreciated the lack of preparedness that your organization has displayed in years past, I am not so certain that I appreciate the sheer amount of preparation and aforethought that has been placed in the organization this year.

This year, why do I have to pay $ 100 for my two children to play an extracurricular sport? I appreciate the $ 25 registration fee. I really do. But the $ 25 uniform fee? Seriously ... my kids are eight and six, and neither of them play on a traveling team, which would require some sort of uniformity to the look.

But my son ... the one who JUST started "getting soccer" at the end of the fall session ... really doesn't NEED a uniform. What happened to allowing them wear their little soccer shirts ... the ones that could be HANDED down because we took great care in not placing their first names on the back of their shirts, going instead for the last name?

I am not too hip to this whole situation, but I will be darned if I am going to tell my kid he or she can't play because your stupid association listened to a scant few parents who decided that the kids looked "sloppy" in their hand me downs and plethora of shorts choices.

But game on next fall when I have THREE kids in your organization.

Please tell me you did send in the letter. Kids' organizations like that need to know that families need to save money in any way possible. Gad, I'm heading for soccer town this fall, hope I can afford it.

You want to talk expensive? In a word...hockey. Oy! Just to put Doodlebug in hockey would have been $600 and that isn't including the required padding, uniforms, skates and various other safety items. I hated telling him no.

Sue ... we registered at the local hockey/skating rink and the Man pipes up in the back seat "I wanna play hockey!"

I was like "ummmm... no."

In my opinion? Sport suck. Better to invest in a library card. :)
