Problems Only Soccer Players Understand

Calling all soccer players! Can you relate to these problems?

By Ratha M.

With the spring soccer season here (and we know a lot of you guys are BIG into soccer) we thought we’d start the ball rolling with a nice little Top 10 List of … Problems Only Soccer Players Would Understand. Game on!

10. How boring ball skills are. We know they make us better, but man do they make us want to go insane!

9. Your friends are on the “A” team this year. Wha?

8. How sad it is when you have to high-five the other team down the line after a devastating loss.

7. Seriously people, how hard is it to do a decent throw in?

6. Orange slices. Again?!

5. Exaggerated injuries for the ref’s benefit.

4. Even more orange slices?!

3. How good it felt when you went from Rec to Travel.

2. Is it a home or away game? What color jersey? You have to get in the car in 30 seconds and you have no idea!

1. How bad those shin guards smell.

Let us know if you’re a soccer player, and if you relate – in the Comments below!
