Tight orange coaching shorts
That's what I'm missing. Today was my first practice with the Middle School Girls' Soccer team. Everything was in place- my roster, our season schedule, my prepared list of drills. Yet somehow, it just wasn't complete. My years on the team at Ridgeway High taught me that a real coach wears tight, ill-fitting, wide-band waisted, bright orange coach shorts. There was a part of me that hoped I at least looked slightly hilarious while running around with the drills because that seemed to be part of the job description when I was a student too. Ahh, Coach Terre, thanks for the memories.
