More Popular Than Sports Being Much Too Dangerous To Play


Did I miss something in all those soccer games I’m forced to watch because I’m married to a soccer fanatic? I just don’t recall stretchers being such an intricate part of the game.

Oh and I’d be remise as a fan-by-proxy to not say Go Team USA! We beat Mexico’s soccer team in Azteca for the first time in over 75 years, which is probably the same amount of time we’ve had a team. Wait, now that I think about it, the US fans had to be evacuated after the first goal so maybe that toy is on the opposing team?

When I’m not questioning toys and pretending to be interested in soccer, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.

My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):

  • The God Of My Children: On Progressive Christianity, my first post is up about how I cannot be passive about giving my children God. It’s a repost, but it is why they hired me in the first place so worth a look.
  • Shaving: Making The Worst Part Of Summer, Better: On This Blogger Makes Fun of Stuff, I tried 3 razors to make the worst of summer (shaving) into the not-to-bad of summer. The best was the cheapest. Score!
  • There will be no gardening tips here: On Four Plus An Angel, I explain why Late Enough will never be a gardening blog and show you my Charlie Brown Tomato plant, which is adorable.

Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:

Alex Iwashyna

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Why is it so hard to use Google before tweeting something? Oh well, I laughed my booty off at all that ridiculousness, so there’s that.

    And I LOVED that post about you over at Kir’s. I saw it when it posted, but hadn’t been commenting much this week. I fixed that. Because you deserve a comment hug.

  2. I saw that toy in the store one day and was kind of confused, to be honest. Maybe I just don’t understand the game 😉 More importantly, does it come with a yellow card?

  3. Stretchers in Soccer? Oh yes. But play doesn’t normally stop. Playing in college, an opposing player and I went for the ball at the same time. People said it looked like to skaters doing flying camels. We both missed the ball. Our shins struck and it sounded like two baseball bats being hit together. He broke his leg and I got a nasty black/purple/green bruise. Both of us crawled off the field as play went on.

  4. Oh my goodness. I have never seen this particular Play Mobile! Too funny. It does make me wonder why they created this toy. Perhaps the stretcher would be a better fit in the Play Mobile Ultimate Street Fighter set?
