SC Fair and a soccer jersey?

OK, it’s a slow soccer summer, sorta… but as we await the arrival of FC Barcelona on Aug. 8 at the ‘Stick (Messi! Messi! Messi!), why not go to the Sonoma County Fair and show off your soccer talent.

Here is how one work associate described the midway game to me:

It’s $5 for three kicks……three holes in a tarp about the size of a goal mouth, upper right corner gets you any jersey you want – Barcelona, Man. u., all the Mexican League teams……center waist-high hole (the equivalent of a pk straight at the keeper) gets you a lame K-mart quality back-pack…….it’s along Arcade Row about five booths up from basketball…..and you can usually talk the guy into four kicks for $5…..

OK, show me something SRU or SCA or any high school/college player out there getting ready for the upcoming season!
