This post is not for the squeamish. :-)

I'm not sure whether the girl that did this to Sarah was wearing soccer cleats with plastic or rubber on the bottom as she is supposed to be, or whether she had metal, which is not allowed in AYSO (as you will soon see why).... I don't think equipment gets monitored much at practices. But... Sarah's thigh got in the way of a cleat in the midst of an intense kick tonight at soccer practice and this was the result:

These "scrapes" are about 10 inches long (I didn't measure them- I'm guessing) and you can't see it very well in the picture, but they are swollen and puffy. You can see the bruising.
It's not like Sarah to make a big deal of an injury (in public, I am talking), so I was surprised to see her limp off the field. I about passed out when I got close enough to see what had happened. She was saying it hurt to walk tonight. I know it's probably going to hurt really bad in the morning, especially in the shower. Poor thing.
