Nobody Puts Baby in a Horner’s Anecdote Corner: On Sportiness
March 18, 2010

When one of my coworkers today jokingly commented how I kicked a foil ball like a girl (don’t ask), I realized how terribly unflattering that comment is.  To girls.  Have you ever seen a girl play soccer?  And I’m not even talking professional soccer.  The girls that make up the reject team for the local little league soccer team probably have a more effective sense of foot-eye coordination.  Seriously, some days it’s a small miracle I haven’t yet died going up a flight of stairs.  But I digress.

My point is, I’m all for critiquing my kick style, but let’s keep it a little less gendered and a little more on the nose.  Or in other words, I kick like a drag queen on quaaludes and crutches.  RECOGNIZE!
