I rarely make this blog about yours truly, but wanted to share this video of me diving around at age 43. Not because I'm so brilliant, or so incredibly fit for my age (that part is true), but because I think it shows the pure joy of goalkeeping. If my body would let me, I'd do this every day.
Happy Holidays to all!

Yeah, I am with you. I love just having people taking shots on me. I could definitely do it everyday, but I would simply break. At 40, I think I suffer more from the pre-game warm-ups than from the actual games! Maybe if I could have someone pick me up after each dive...
I do less and less for my pregame warmup now, mostly just a lot of stretching and some easy handling. I try to save the diving for the game. Never know which dive will be my last!
I just happened to run to your blog by "chance" I'm 49 and actively playing goalkeeper indoor and outdoor with a much younger crowd. And i love it. You are right when you say the pure joy of goalkeeping. So true............
Thanks Manny! 49 eh? That gives me hope that I can keep it going for some time yet.
