How did ya do?

What is the first question that any convenience store manager will ask when you bring your uniformed child into the store. How did ya do? What does that mean? We all know that it means did you win or lose. Forget about ties. Too bad in my opinion that we always have to announce wins or losses when there is much more to the game of soccer. How about an answer like I did my first header and it went forward or perhaps I burned this big dude and then made a great pass to the wing.

This is a great observation that I've seen through my own playing days and today with my kid's AYSO matches. We definitely place too much emphasis on winning and losing. My kids have been getting into Diadora
soccer cleats
recently and they are a great value. It would be great to make quality, low cost products like those available to children through your program. Also, check out my soccer page
