So, as I’ve mentioned, I coach my two sons’ AYSO teams, a commitment that, while it often keeps me from watching Villa in real time, is one I thoroughly enjoy. A perfect Saturday for me—wins for Villa, the Tigers, and the Dark Knights—feels like nine points. (Even better when both Graff boys get goals.) Last year, unfortunately, AVFC was a bit underperforming when compared to my AYSO U8s and U10s. Will this season be different?
Over the last three games (I had to lop off Villa’s Arsenal win to make it an equal number of games), my U10s, the Tigers, lead the table, with my U8s, the Dark Knights, ahead of Villa on goal differential.
