4. While the rest of the team was stretching, you were still sweatin' out a brisk half-hour mile.

5. You acted like the warm-up really was 'light,' but your wheezing gave you away.

6. You had NO idea how to react when someone threw a ball at you.

7. You developed a deep, deep anxiety about your face's attraction to fast-moving objects.


8. Your coach tried to simplify things, but it was still too complicated for you.

9. Since you couldn't run or score, your teammates always made you goalie.

10. Or they made up a 'team manager' position, which basically meant you just got people snacks and water.

11. You lived in mortal terror of missing a save or block and screwing over your whole team.
