It's been for a long time I haven't put on my soccer boots and gears to the field, though I've made mind for a while to kick a few goals, well, just right time, when the ex-XSoccer coach's leaving comes, I could find myself a reason to do so, and then it happened!
On Saturday morning, played 2 hrs at the QuJiang Pool Relic Park with Sayid, TonyC, Vincent, Behrman, Rocky, Neil, Shane and Locke, amazing crew and we really had a great time playing over there! Hope next game comes soon!
Well, Everybody knows every four years there's a month totally about soccer, that's the only month probably someone may forget other endurance activities. I hope I still do some endurance workouts, and try some events or activities with team and couple of friends, but I was wrong, and I failed.
During this month, I was totally lost in the games with friends, and adjusted jetlag sometimes, and caught up the working schedules. Pretty hard like in a battle. But unfortunately, my weight increased, actually to me it's not a bad thing, since I'm too thin.
I'm gonna finish all the games left, since I haven't miss any single one game so far! And great games like Germany 4-1 England, USA 1-0 Algeria...etc.
2010 Xi'an Hi-Tech Zone Soccer Tournament (XAHTZST) is launching on Sat, 4/24/2010. Normally we, Active Xi'an Soccer team was always in Xi'an Software Park Soccer League (XASPSL) every Fall, but this year here comes a new tour! Much cheaper for the qualification, more games could play (At least 8 games guaranteed for XAHTZST; 3 games for XASPSL).
"This is gonna be very tough and challenging! since there're so many big players in the new tournament, we might not be that promising with the winning of the group." - Said by Bruce Xu, captain of team, after the grouping draw.
New kit has be equiped this week, first game is at 9:00am tomorrow. More updates to come!
Also come along with basketball tournaments on starts on Sunday 12:00!
