Livinthedream

I have a big one on the hook, ah man it's just Livinthedream again....shucks!

Your funny, actually my wife and I plan on flying up for every UDub home game. You see my DD is pretty independent and doesn't need to stay close to home, unlike some kids. She knows we are only a 2 hour flight away if needed.

I know you're part of the HATERS club. It must suck with all your DDs accomplishments and you being her club team manager. It must be disappointing for your to see her verbally commit to a kickball team after how many years at Beach. Just give this advice as a ctr back, when the ball comes her way...telll her to "SEND IT!"

Time to throw the small fish (you) back into the lake.
Wow...there you go again trying to be tough. Hey Dipshit a big mouth don't make you a big man...it just
Great talking to you Living. I assume that we are all good now. Good luck to your player.

Thanks, and it was a good talk. Take care and have a good Holiday.

It's just my humble opinion that UCSB plays kickball when I saw them play UCI.
 
Livingthedream, man if my DD wants to get away from me. BTW, she will never be successful doing so :). What does that say about CaliKline's DD going all the way to NC State. Yikes!

I miss him. He was entertaining. He was a nice guy in person. It seems to be working out for his kid.
I'm sure he is, most people are. Some parents are all in, say and do things that don't make sense to the rest of us. Sooner rather than later it is over, the kid moves on, and all you have left is what you did.

No worries NG. I have Sheriff douche blocked and what he thinks of my daughter is irrelevant. She has the credentials, the street cred, and just had a kick ass freshman season. Not to mention she is getting straight A's at a top university. I'm good. Knowing that heartbreak is in his future is enough for me.
Congrats how was the U20 World Cup? Is she adjusting well to the time change? Or do you mean she had to play college soccer?

I'm not sure what you mean by this question. My post was pretty clear. Congrats on your daughter getting a national championship. They get a big fat zero for style points and aesthetics but they get an A plus for winning.

If you are asking was my player in PNG she wasn't. She was completing her freshman season in college. It was a good season. She played a ton and improved. She will make the next U20 WWC team in France, assuming they don't have to redshirt. She loves soccer but her education is number one to her. Her priorities makes me think that we did something right.

Wow that's great they already let you know she made the France WC team.

Don't get salty on me because mine is on a track that you wish yours was on. Yours was age eligible this cycle and didn't get one call into U20 camp in 2 years. Just keep your eyes on the U20's this cycle and ask me again in two years when yours isn't on the U23 team and isn't on the all conference team and especially not on the conference all academic team or anything else. I'm pretty sure you don't want to compare our two players because there really isn't a comparison.

You will be hating on her even more next year swoosh. Haters make you greater. Remember that. And have your player hit the books, we are talking about women's soccer after all.
 
Oh and I hope it's funny to you too Cali. Let me know when your player gets her first call into national team camp. Although, I'm sure you would put it on a billboard on the 91 for everyone to see if it ever did happen. Or maybe you would have it as your new avatar like your NC State logo. You get more lame by the day.

Hating up the food chain makes you look even dumber. Your player didn't even get an ODP call in for winter! That's a pretty good indicator of where she is in the food chain. Work on getting your daughter ready for her "first choice" school and worry a little less what is going on with mine. She is doing just fine and will continue to do so.

For others not in the know. To make an All Academic 1st, 2nd and Honorable mention. The player needs the following.

1. Minimum 3.0 GPA(Pac-12) 3.20 GPA(WCC)
2. Play in 50% of the games (10 mins a game counts)
3. At least a full year of academic grades. I didn't see any true 1st yr freshmens on any academic list. Only redshirt freshmens who have a full year under their belts already.

Easy to figure out which D1 college players who start or play significant minutes aren't doing well in school.

You're confused, I wish my daughter wins a NC one day, are you a palm reader? Is that how you know about the France WC?

It's all good. Not going to debate it with you. If you want to call it palm reading we can call it that. I call it knowing how good my player is and knowing what is in her future. No worries. So far so good.
 
Here is what one of the parents send me this morning:

Despite the fact that Surf had over 500 college coaches' names listed (multiple names for a single school), there were only 76 D1 colleges (women's) that signed up. That compares with 68 D1 colleges at Silverlakes. So Surf had only 8 more D1 college women's programs than Silverlakes. For a first-year showcase and fairly late notice, that's not too shabby at all. And if you look at schools that only went to Silverlakes vs the ones that only went to Surf, I'd prefer Silverlakes with schools such as Stanford, Northwestern, West Virginia, Berkeley, and Colorado that only signed up for Silverlakes. And we got to play all 3 days and 4 games, all games were high quality competition. Really glad we did this showcase instead.

As long as you(the parent) are happy with how your money is being spent...does it really matter which showcase you attend. It's nice to have choices and competition between all 3 showcases just makes it better for Teams in the long run.
Woot woot!

I can sure tell you are no spitter.
