So, I realized something very important today. It is important to play power soccer on a flat surface. Nothing overly dramatic happened, but I had a hard time lining up my 180° spin kicks. I managed to land a few sweet ones though, so that was definitely positive. The floor was slightly slanted toward the corners, so I had to chase down balls that kept rolling farther and farther away from me. Don't take this as complaining because I'm very lucky to have access to a place to play on my own during the winter, but it was kind of funny how it made me think about the floor and the ball. Maybe that is healthy. I had to think about two different things at once, so that was good. The only potentially unhealthy side effect of this is that I need to remember that once I hit a flatter surface the ball will act differently. However, with all of these thoughts in my mind, I am probably becoming a more aware player. Awareness of the ball and other players on both teams is incredibly important, so even though I didn't really plan to have a slanted floor, it will definitely help me develop.
After a year of economics, I have learned about supply and demand; to be honest, that's about all I remember. That's the concept I'm applying to this blog; I am supplying the quality writing that you as the reader demand (or at least I hope I am living up to your standards). My name is Zak Schmoll; I am a Business Administration and Statistics double major at the University of Vermont. I have been a sports writer in Central Vermont with the Central Vermont Sports Network, The Bridge, as well as a regular contributor to "The Local Angle," by Jim Higgins in the Times Argus, but I have now taken my audience to the Internet. I hope you will come along with me on my random journey through my mind on the Perpetual Blogging Co.
