Clark's First Goal!

Yes, it was a proud moment for Daddy. My son stole the soccer ball and promptly took it from midfield to kick it in the goal! Oh, happy day! My son's first goal! While I held my camera, so sure I had captured his first moment of athletic glory, I saw the coach say something to him. Something that sent chills up and down my spine. "Clark, our goal is the other way". Oh, horror of horrors! He scored for the other team. I took the pictures and silently slunked away, avoiding the harsh stares of the other parents. Had Clark just lost them the game? What could they be thinking? How should I react? How do we live this down? My answer to everything. Pizza.
