Another kind of soccer game

Someday Margot will be sitting around with her friends saying, "Yeah? You think YOUR parents are weird? Mine have got yours beat. Each year, they would get together with their friends from college and some other friends and have a weekend soccer tournament in June. They would alternate cities - one year in Brooklyn, one year in Baltimore, then back to Brooklyn, etc."

"They started getting really crazy about it as the years went by. They had uniforms..."

"And a manager..."

"And there was a trophy..."

"And after the soccer game, everyone would get together for a barbeque that lasted until the wee hours of the night."

"Their team was called the COBRAZ! and one year my mom and her friends made this insane cake in the shape of a cobra. It was a real, edible cake. It took 8 hours to make."

And her friends will look at these photos and say, "You're right. You win."
