One of my sons is in his first year coaching HS soccer at the 4A level in North Carolina. He is the Head Boys & Girls Soccer Coach at Cape Fear HS in Fayetteville, NC. Tonight my wife I went to his 1st Round NCHSAA Boys State Play-Off Game against the Clayton HS Comets.
Cape Fear played most of the game down two men due to multiple yellow cards but managed to tie the game 2-2. They moved on to the 2nd Round of the State Play-offs as the result of a 7-6 Penalty Kick shoot out.
I got home very late from the game and grabbed a beer from the largest microbrewery in Colorado called Tommyknocker. The beer I choose to toast the Cape Fear Colts was Brown. It contains maple syrup and is 4.5% ABV. As the name suggest Brown is a Brown Ale. Nothing super special about this beer fair at best.
I might forget this beer I drank tonight in a couple years but I will not forget the soccer game I witnessed tonight. It was special to watch a young coach help his team overcame a lot of obstacles to live to play another day. Kudos to the Cape Fear Colts.
