This past weekend, I headed out to San Jose, California with my Arizona Heat teammates to participate in the 2009 Silicon Valley Power Charge Soccer Tournament. This year's tourney was the Western Regional Qualifier for the 2009 national tournament in Fishers, Indiana. The first and second place teams automatically earned a bid to Nationals, while those who placed third were still in the running for wild-card spots. After five games of pool play, we found ourselves playing the Santa Barbara Rollin' Gauchos for third place in Division I. After 40 grueling minutes, both teams were knotted up at zero and headed into overtime. What happens next was some of the most exciting 10 minutes in power soccer that I have ever experienced. Take a look at the YouTube videos that I've uploaded and see for yourself.

It’s time again for my benefit golf tournament this year! It will be on May 9th at the Links at Queen Creek in Queen Creek, AZ. It is always a great time on the course for everyone. This year, all of the funds that we raise will go towards helping my power soccer team pay for tournament travel expenses. If you or anyone you know would be interested in playing, please let me know and send me an e-mail. Also, if you would like to donate any raffle prizes, were looking for those too.
Here's a clip of some of my power soccer practice before our regional tournament in San Jose, Ca. I shot it on my new Flip Mino HD camcorder (which is fantastic). The song is "Walk Away" by Mad at Gravity.
