    I play center midfield - I was captain of our team this year and we're good for a small international school but we just can't compare to bigger teams in the US. Girls soccer is not nearly as popular here as it is in North America.

    Yeah I love when the national teams play each other! So do you play soccer? Do you say football or soccer? I use them interchangeably since all my British/European friends get really upset when i call it 'soccer', lol.

    So do you play football? If so, what position?

    Yeah I played for my high school team and we were very successful :D

    But even though almost every Latin American country is very "futbolero" and Honduras is not an exception, we were not very organized and I'm sure I'm not good enough to play at a university level. Apparently sports are taken really seriously in the US unlike here where everything is rather informal...

    I like to play as a defensive midfielder, and I was team captain too. Now I only play every Sunday, when I get together with friends. I miss playing more though.

    We call it "fútbol" in Spanish. In English I'm more used to saying soccer because of the strength of American culture in our own. I don't mind saying football though : )

    By the way, if I recall you're half Canadian?

    If everything goes as it should, Honduras will be facing Canada along with Mexico and Jamaica for the next World Cup qualifiers. Last qualifiers we were also on the same group and we tied 1-1 in Canada and Honduras, I think.
  • piratemonkeypiratemonkey Registered User Posts: 607 Member
    Yup, I'm half Canadian. I have a feeling Honduras will beat Canada since our national team isn't usually very good :( I'm not sure why that is since they have incredible youth soccer programs and there are tons of local teams.

    Yeah, I miss playing too! Since it's winter I've been playing a bit of indoor soccer but I don't like it nearly as much as playing outdoors. That's probably because we play in our gym which is really stuffy and has a bad surface.
  • danielcarp17danielcarp17 Registered User Posts: 574 Member
    Who knows, maybe we'll wind up watching the game together =P And don't worry, though Honduras has some good players we usually fail in accomplishing our big goals.

    I'm actually more used to playing in small, artificial grass fields. We call it "futbolito."

    I'm leaving for a week tomorrow (actually in about 8 hours) so my Internet time will be scarce. If any of you gets an EW please let me know!
  • piratemonkeypiratemonkey Registered User Posts: 607 Member
    we will :) yeah i don't mind playing on artificial grass but our gym floor is made of wood and the ball bounces really weirdly on it. How cool would it be to be able to actually watch the game together! Enjoy your vacation!

    I missed you guys and my unhealthy CC addiction, seriously! EWs, don't want to think about that, ahhh! CC has given me a major inferiority complex, or atleast compounded the effect innate in the app process!

  • JPanJPan Registered User Posts: 153 Junior Member
    hopefullyblue....not yet. in past years amherst has sent out early acceptances, around march 1st i believe...search for old posts. we're just anticipating and biting our nails :-P
  • skunkskunk Registered User Posts: 663 Member
    i've just finished my fingernails. moving to the toe.:D
  • froghornfroghorn Registered User Posts: 561 Member
    I think I exhausted the toes, onto pulling the hair!
  • piratemonkeypiratemonkey Registered User Posts: 607 Member
    same.

    Ahhhhhhhh getting an early acceptance would just make me so happy!!! There would be absolutely nothing to worry about - other acceptances would just be the icing on the cake. I've worked so hard and I will be so upset if I don't get into one of my favourite schools :(
  • froghornfroghorn Registered User Posts: 561 Member
    I'd just like to get in. March would be nice, but April would be just fine ;).
  • skunkskunk Registered User Posts: 663 Member
    March would be great, especially when you've applied to no safeties, written very very risky essays, and are extremely scared about your chances.:(
  • KristinaKristina Registered User Posts: 1,017 Senior Member
    Interesting. What was your logic for applying to no safeties?
