(Sept 24) "Hold Your Head Up"

I remember it like it was yesterday. My little league soccer team had advanced through the post-season tournament and made it to the championship game. We had the opportunity to play teams from all around the state and were able to make it to the finals. We were as excited as little boys could get about a sporting event.

The game ended in a tie and so we went to a shoot-out. Each team selected five players to do a penalty kick. Whoever scored the most goals won the trophy. It all came down to the final kick. Sadly for us, it did not go our way. We lost.
