Soccer Come To Meeting Call: Revolutionary Email Poem

March 17, 1999

In 1999 I coached two soccer teams: The Tarantulas (boys) and da Blues. This poem, found recently, was on my email inviting the parents and kids to a pre-season meeting.

There’s mud everywhere!

to kick the ball.

(This is my greetin’
to invite you to a meetin’).
