Soccer's missing the boat

The success of the Petaluma Little League team in the LL World Series is enormous (and I have a hunch they are gonna win again tonight) but it only makes me do one of those "what ifs…."

Like What If youth soccer had it's act together like youth baseball and the Little League does…

I can think of at least two Santa Rosa United teams you probably would have watched vie for a national title in the past: SRU Heat, a boys team; and SRU Storm, a girls group. Both were as good in their sport as Petaluma is in its and they could have contended on a national stage. Any kid who might have played on either of those teams or parent who financed it (LOL) knows that also.

Oh, well, they can always dream about what might have been.

In the meantime – Go Petaluma!
