Youth Sports Begin

Youth soccer season is finally underway, along with football so the camera is clicking again in the great outdoors. Of course it is still 102 degrees in the valley of the sun stroke. Never mind that it is now October! At least the weather soothsayers predict the mercury will dip below triple digits by this Saturday. Just in time for another game.

My trusty Sony A100 and Minolta 70-210mm F4 (Beer Can) lens haven’t seen the outdoors since a trip to California a couple of months ago; my attempt to escape another 112 degree Arizona summer. So last Saturday morning (7:30am to beat the heat) was the first official game of the GYSA soccer season here in Gilbert, Arizona. The kids were ready to get outside and enjoy some heathly competition.

Now that Fall is officially here, the Sony will be getting some exercise and I can get some fresh air without burning my lungs. I’m not sure if I’m mentally prepared for exercise just yet, however.
