Poor, poor Rip.
He really wasn't excited about coaching a soccer team full of six year olds. . .talk about unfocused energy! As Rip put it, "one six year old who doesn't listen is bad enough. Imagine seven of them!"
However, he was a good sport. Mason's team had no coach, and hence, couldn't play until a coach materialized. Enter: Rip Ray.
Rip Ray who actually does know something about soccer. . .he played competitively from the time he was Mason's age through high school. He has stumpy, stunted, crooked fingers from breaking them all in his time as a goalie. He also has his share of broken toes from those days. Who said football was more dangerous than soccer???
I think he just agreed to coach so he could go shopping. New soccer shoes, new shorts, a new bag. . .Rip Ray at his finest!!!
