Endless Summer

Summer evening matches in Fairfax City have been another hit, with a great mix of folks from the DMV.

Heat? What heat?

The formula for success when it comes to summer football: Do it after 7 when the sun ducks behind the maples and oaks and shades the entire Van Dyck pitch; open the match up to those who’ve been playing for 20 years or 20 minutes; make it competitive but remember everyone has to work the next day; ensure Mary McPherson shows up for inspiration at least once a year. (OK, Mary now teaches in India, so we’re flattered that her stateside road trip brings her to the metropolis of Fairfax.)

Anyway, last week was another gem. Fun never had it so good.
