PSSC Soccer

So I am at this moment on my couch, icing my knee, watching TV, with a large smile on my face. This is normal for me, both the day of, and the day after, a game of soccer. For most this might sound a bit much, (and yes I am planning on seeing a doc) but this feeling of ‘Post Soccer Bliss’ is hard to explain. To put it simply, I feel like a kid again. Obviously there is more to it than that, I get to compete, be outside in beautiful Fairmount, run around for a very long time. Basically these are the things I cannot do in my normal day to day of sitting in an office chair.

It helps my happiness that we FINALLY won a game, it’s been a rough summer for my team. We finished 2nd last season, but we had a few that couldn’t play this summer and one that decided to move to Boston, so we still need to replace the one that left and find some solid defense.

When I started playing 2 years ago, I realized I was very unaware of how much I missed playing, including the feeling of this Post Soccer Bliss. I have a feeling that Dopamine plays a factor in my happiness, but I will ignore the medical reasons for now. I tell you, there is nothing better than driving back home after a game. Windows down, music cranked and a HUGE smile on my face.

If anyone has a chance, and feels they are missing some fun take a look at their website. Philadelphia Sport and Social Club is an amazing organization. For anyone new, or anyone into playing anything, you can join a team as an individual. It’s that easy. In fact my team of amazing people all joined as individuals, and we were all placed on the same team.

I know there are probably 100-150 people that play soccer in two leagues, one less advanced than the other. Touch football has something like 5 different leagues, which means a ton of people. They also have kickball, and have added a few new ones since I’ve joined.

So far, in my experience, I have had the best teammates, all of whom I now consider friends, and I look forward to every game and every season, even though I have to ice my knees after each game. I also still have the largest smile on my face, and probably will take it to bed with me.
