Socker Soccer ...

Tonight finds me with Elder Son and a couple of his friends, enjoying the premier of West Texas' pro soccer venture. The West Texas Sockers - quite literally - kickoff tonight at Grande Stadium.

The Sockers will face the Arizona Sahuaros, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at Grande, in the first of a series of exhibition games the Sockers will play before opening the regular season on May 2 at El Paso.

A few months back, I expressed my support on this blog for such a venture, and went on to purchase season tickets as soon as they were available.

Even taking into account this being a newly-created team, in a pre-season match, we're looking forward to the game. And Elder Son can tell you, from first-hand experience, they have a VERY GOOD pitch on which to play.

We shall not, we shall not be moved,
We shall not, we shall not be moved,
Just like the team, that's gonna win the cup!
We shall not be moved.
(with apologies to fans of Man-U)
