Ice Soccer

This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago when we had another snowstorm. I was walking to my local diner for brunch when I saw these guys playing soccer in the snow. The concrete park usually looks gray and depressing but the blanket of snow changed the entire scene.

So when was the last time you went out and play in the snow?

HUmmmmm, about a year ago when we got 1/2 inch and it was gone by noon? We live vicariously through all of you YANKEES!

belle photo de ces joueurs de Football. Enfant, rien ne nous arrêtait pour jouer au foot (sauf les parents ;o) ), on jouait tous les soir, jusqu'à la nuit....maintenant je regarde à la télévision ;o))

beautiful photo of the soccer players. Child, nothing was stopping us to play football (except the parents ;o)), we played all night until the night .... now I look on television ;o))

That would be the last time it snowed in Seattle ... about December 12th, if memory serves -:)

I just got back from a trip to Finland. Did plenty of playin' around in the snow - my soul feels a lot lighter now. Ready to take up the office responsibilities, with a super serious face!

That would be Christmas Day in Central Park while playing tourist in NYC. Cold, clear and lots of fun.

Great photo.

A long time ago, unfortunately. We got a little bit of snow in Paris this winter, but then they closed the parks!

Wow, Ming, you've found a whole new sport!
Last time I played in the snow I literally broke my butt (i.e., tailbone) sledding at midnight in Prospect Park with my kids—and that WAS the last time I played in the snow!

I am play football (soccer) tonight and it might well be in the snow from the look of the weather! I notice in the picture the chap nearest the ball is wearing an Arsenal shirt, that is my team :-)
