Sam the Soccer Safety Patrol Sez



Score a goal.  And look both ways before crossing the street.

  1. I can't kick a ball, though. I broke a few toes years ago, but had no health insurance. Those suckers didn't heal properly.

  2. As long as you follow proper traffic safety procedures, though, we're probably okay.

  3. I should pass this on to my two grandsons who play soccer and occasionally cross streets!

  4. I guess it's important to play safe soccer.

  5. I used to play soccer in the street, probably would've blown Sam's mind.

  6. Very bad analogy. A goalkeeper is supposed to intercept things, a pedestrian is supposed to avoid them.

  7. You know I can just see something like this happening. Getting hit by a ball hurts.

  8. Yeah those cars can kick back.

  9. @Eva: This is how the conversation went:
    "Hey, doesn't that look like a Mountie?"
    "Kinda. But, where's the hat? I think it looks more like one of those school safety patrols."
    "With jazz hands."
    "Totally."
    Yep. This is how many of my posts come to life.
    Most without jazz hands, though.
    @Stephen: Safe soccer is okay, I suppose. But, it's hard to dribble while wearing condoms. Come to think of it (hee hee hee...I said "come") , condoms PREVENT dribbling. And what kind of fun soccer game is that?
    @Adam: As long as it was just Sam's MIND.
    @Gorilla: Good call on that goalkeeper thing. I wish she knew that beforehand. We probably wouldn't have lost.
    @Mark: Especially IN the balls.
    @Pat: Especially the German ones.
    @Madman: It's so "choreographical."
    NOTE: Probably not a real word.

  10. I'm still trying to figure this one out. I really can't make head or tail of it at all :)

    1. It's just the way my mind works. If you can't figure it out, welcome to mental health.

  11. You folks don't know what REAL footy is all about!

    's'all about snot-nosed kids using jumpers for goalposts, kicking the shit out of one another and not worrying about how many, or if any, goals are scored.

    It ain't football without a few broken toes and scraped knees.

    1. Oh, yeah??? Well, we've got synchronized swimming, X-Box, and that gymnastics thing with the ribbon and the ball!
      Oh...wait. That doesn't sound right.

  12. I don't know why but I've always sucked at kicking balls. Guess that's a good thing for the men folks! Living where I live though I had to master the whole looking both ways, over and over and over again. People cannot drive around here!

    1. "...I've always sucked at kicking balls." Congratulations! Our minds work the same way. :-)

  13. I am inclined to think that looks like the goalie dude is sprinting away after making on the grass.

  14. He's embarrassed over how he's dressed, that's all.

    ReplyDelete
  15. That goalie won't save anything adopting a boy band pose like that.

    1. Only if teenage girls are taking the shot.

  16. There's something about that goalie that screams "GARY GLITTER in-the-making".

    1. I Googled Gary Glitter to make sure he was involved in child porn (I was almost positive he was). Ya know, I think you're on to something.
      Then I read that he was convicted in Vietnam for committing lewd acts with a minor. Vietnam. Yikes. That must have been something.

  17. He doesn't make me want to score, Al. I'm more inclined to continue abstinence.

  18. But, can you observe proper pedestrian procedures?

  19. I wonder how many kids have kicked him in the nether regions...

    1. Two. One for each.
      Hmm, now that I read what I wrote...does that even make sense?

  20. I want to know how that guy can stay perpetually floating in midair.

    1. 'Cause he's got mad soccer (football) skills.
      Not even Beckham can claim that.

  21. It's what gets me through the day.
    Well, that. And medication.

  22. I can't decide if the Goalie is having a fit or has just been run over.....

  23. I laughed this time, just like the first time I saw them on your FB page! Funny's funny!
