Rochester, MN - As Paula Yasmin and Dave Gabbard waited for the rest of their team by the nets at the Soccer World complex last Wednesday night, they quickly realized that they were totally screwed by people deciding to not show up.
"I put the invitation online for this weeks game and 12 people said they were attending, what the hell?" stated Ms Yasmin to Mr Gabbard. "It's almost like responsible people that paid money to be part of a team are incapable of actually showing up when they are supposed to be there. Why on earth do I have to play the bad cop of reminding people to actually show up for something they paid money to do?!"
While Ms Yasmin was clearly frustrated, Mr Gabbard held on to hope as he said, "They will come. There's no way Tom and Linda would bullshit me. I know that they posted that they were at Beaver Island Brewing in St Cloud 20 minutes ago, but they are definitely coming. Absolutely. 100%. There's NO WAY they would screw me like this."
While Mr Gabbard kept babbling to himself and pacing, Paula Yasmin took to Facebook to post a passive aggressive message on the team group page about "Commitments" and "Showing up on team with respect for your teammates who were there, Larry."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this later as Greg, Larry, Stephen and Manuel assure Ms Yasmin and Mr Gabbard that they will definitely make it next week.
