He's a heartbreaker

And by He I mean the entire Terrapin soccer team. They break my heart over and over again. The most recent example: Last night's 2-0 loss to Wake Forest.

Maybe this loss wouldn't have sucked so much if I hadn't driven 6 hours to the game and then had to drive 6 hours back home. (Although to be fair, I slept on the ride home while one of my friends drove.)

Maybe it wouldn't have sucked so much if it didn't look like half the team didn't show up.

Maybe it wouldn't have sucked so much if it didn't put us to 0-3 in the ACC and 3-4-2 overall.

But it probably would have sucked just as much even if none of that was true. It just breaks my heart when we lose. We've all been spoiled the past few years. We've had solid teams, hell we were national champions two years ago. Now we have a pretty young team, but even the more senior players aren't producing like they have in the past. So it's tough. Next game is Tuesday at home against Stony Brook, which will hopefully be a chance for us to get back on a winning streak.

To quickly highlight some positives: Road trips rock. Bo Jangles was pretty delicious. (But probably only because we don't have them up here.) My friend put me on his player-guest list so I didn't have to pay for a ticket.

Octapulluza starts tomorrow. When I made my guidelines, I forgot about Halloween and I forgot that October is going to be an insanely busy month. But I'm fairly confident that I can still make it work out, it's just going to take some more careful planning.

Running today just isn't going to happen. We didn't get in until late late last night, and the energy to run is just not there. I'm sad because I wanted to break in the new shoes, but there's no sense in going out for a run when the energy just isn't there.

In freaking awesome news, the Phillies won the NL East and are going to the playoffs for the first time since 1993. I was way little then and needless to say don't remember too much about it so I am PUMPED!!!

I can't quite relate to the sports fanaticism, but I can tell you have a lot of passion for sports.

Best wishes for Octapolluza
