I used to play soccer
a lot with my soccer buddies in Los Angeles, Bay
Area, Virginia, and Arizona. From 1996 to 2007, I competed in the Grand
Tournament of North American Chinese
Soccer League on every
Labor Day weekend for 11 years, mostly with team Silicon Valley Tigers.
It was a great time. After moving to Tucson, I played with team Red
Army in the Tucson
League for 4 years. We reached division finals 3 times and
won the title of 2008-09 season. The trophy is displayed in the Miss Saigon
restaurant at Speedway and Campbell, as one of my teammates works there.
Tucson is great for soccer: many
fields and players for
pickup games, several leagues for formal games, and you can play all year round.
However, after a
couple of injuries in the last season, I decided that it was enough for
and ankles. So I quit soccer in 2010 :-(
