The Death of an Ego

I play house league level soccer. I'm nothing special, but I consider myself to be in the better half of goalies at this age/level. Last week, which happened to be my first game back since last season, we won 5-3 after being down 3-1 at one point, which was a great result. This week, not so much.

To be fair, the team we were playing against was quite good; however, the score was unacceptable. 10-2 (to them obviously). I do realize that I deserve at least partial blame for this, but we would have lost big even if Iker Casillas was in goal. (He's the goalie for Spain, sheesh). Luckily, I did learn a number of key things about my team in the process:

a) My defense thinks a striker winding up to take a shot is their cue to part like the sea to Moses.
b) My midfielders do not understand the concept of defending
c) My strikers cannot finish any chance they get. ever.
d) I'm really really rusty.

To sum up a very painful game in a few short words, I played awfully, which made me one of the better people on my team today.
