Funniest Moment on a Soccer Field: Probably the time when my roommate, Betsy, completely bailed into our team manager, Tom, in the middle of the field during a practice. Betsy was turning to run with her mark and sprinted directly into Tom. Tom’s pen went flying 10 feet in one direction, his notebook went 10 feet in the other direction, and he crumpled to the ground (but got up unharmed). One of the funniest moments of my life.
