Our Soccer Coach

OK, we have a soccer team AND we have a coach!  We asked a VERY pawfessional and ex-beer-ienced fellow if he would coach our team.  And we got lucky cuz he said YES!  We want to introduce you to our coach . . . EASY!

He will be a great coach and hopefully we won't be humiliated when we play our furst game.  BUTT, we won't do too much until after the Mayorz Marathon that is THIS SATURDAY!

Here are the names we are submitting to whatever that official agency is called that we must submit our roster to (see Easy, we warned you we were soccer-impaired):

  0 - Ernie
  1 - Ruby
02 - Oz
  3 - Walter
  4 - Benjie
  5 - Bites
  6 - Easy
  8 - Susie
10 - Murphy
11 - Stanley
12 - Lassie
13 - Zaphod
20 - Sweet William
24 - Sarge
33 - Millie
55 - Mickie
87 - Frankie

We are requesting that all team members present themselves IN UNIFORM by April 25th.  (That means, you should send us a photo of you in the official uniform.)  Remember, if you need a copy of the uniform (on a transparent background) just email us and we'll send you one. 

Now, we need a team name . . . Any ideas?

Murphy & Stanley

Dear Murphy and Stanley,
I am very excited to be on your team. Will you be able to help dress me. If yes, please leave me a comment on Hailey's blog or email me.

Thanks Zaphod

I get into troubles when we go into the playing field at the moment 'cos I've developed a habit of trying to introduce myself to all the football players in the middle of a game!
Never mind, it'll be cricket season soon, I can introduce myself to them instead!

My Daddy plays soccer, I too have a habit of trying to introduce myself to all the football players in the middle of a game just like Princess Leah when I'm out on my walks, especially if my Daddy is playing and I want to go see him, his team is actually called The Cavaliers which is perfect for me because I'm a pugalier, half pug half Cavalier! I think your team should be called something like Canine Collaborations United! Love and licks from your furiend Frank xxxxx

We look forward to reading what the team will be called. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

How about the SQUIRREL KICKERS.... and we could have Squirrels on our Soccer Balls.

Will we have Cheer Leaders?

Easy will be a super coach... butt we hope there aren't very many RULES... We are not good at rules you know...

Reilly-Denny Cowspotdogs said...

Hmmm how about the "Blogville Barkers"

Yamini MacLean said...

Hari OM
Easy is about the best coach you could get so well done on that one... now as to names...
Blogville Biters
Blogville Kick Artists
The Dribble Dawgs
The Matchateers

..........ohhhhhh now you got me started....... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

Blogville Goalie Oli Aroooooooos!

Oz theTerrier said...

Shut the front door! We have a coach?!? *paws up* Easy will be an excellent coach, I am sure of it. I just hope we will be equally excellent players. BOL I like Reilly & Denny's name choice...the Blogville Barkers. But we would need two teams so maybe one could be Canine United similar to Frank's suggestion!

stellaroselong said...

Do you want any cheerleaders cos Maggie and I would love to be some....of course Gussie just wants to sit on the sidelines, and eat and drink his beverages.....I heard Jim may be coming also....stella rose

Mark Muller said...

I'm sure we will win that golden bowl... the boyfriend of my mommas buddy Lisa lived next door to the first wife of a famous german soccer player named Loddar who became a coach later in many countries... so she is quasi an eggs-pert and can share her endless wisdom with me and the blogville team :o) There are not much rules, just one: the round thingy aka ball has to land in the angular thingy aka goal...

Casey said...

I can't wait to cheer you on! I'm going to bring a vuvezuela to blow at the games, BOL!! For names, how about the Blogville Biters or the Blogville Barkers?

Sarge said...

Wow, this will be so much fun! Easy will make a great and entertaining coach. BOL I'm gonna vote for Reilly and Denny's idea "Blogville Barkers". Maybe our kitty furiends will start a team and we can play against them sometime.
Grr and Woof,

Lauren Miller said...

Oh that looks like fun! I can't wait to see everyone in their uniforms! :D

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

This will be exciting. Do the Squirrels have a team, as well?

Duncan said...

Oh, boy. This is gonna be good!!!

Foley Monster and Pocket said...

This is so cool. We will be rooting you on.

Millie and Walter said...

With Easy as our coach how could we possibly lose against anyone? Our dad tells us you should register the team with FIFA. They are the official world wide governing body for football/soccer.

Will work on it this weekend...oh man Easy...this is going to be many laughs!

The Mad Scots

That last comment was from Mom's addy, not mine. Oopps.

You guys can do EVERYTHING! I will be on the sidelines cheering you on. I'd use my Pom Pom's like a cheerleader but I thought they had squeekers in them and they're sort of. . . . . . .uh. . . broken.
