…but I digress.
The beginning of a new season and the introduction of a new camera. Actually, it was not so new. After the water damage from the Muskegon game and the downpour of two seasons before, I decided to look at the world’s largest garage sale to replace my camera. And there it was. The very same camera in almost new condition. “Used only indoors on a tripod,” the description read. I placed a bid, and this Sony digital camera which was damn expensive in 2006 when I bought it new, cost me a total of $33 to replace ($21 to win the auction, $12 shipping).
This week, I began discussing some of the ideas in Elizabeth Gilbert's new book: Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear (2015). Today, I want to summarize some of her suggestions about doing creative work. She says:

Lamar Hunt US Open Cup
Detroit City FC 0 at Michigan Bucks 3
BUCKS David Goldsmith 7′
BUCKS Peri Marosevic 9′
BUCKS Brad Ruhaak 30′
Ultimate Soccer Arenas, Pontiac, MI
Le Rouge’s first foray into the historic, nation-wide Lamar Hunt US Open Cup occurred last season against RWB Adria. Their second adventure would come against a local lower-league soccer team, the Michigan Bucks.
The Michigan Bucks are in the Premier Development League (PDL) for their 20th season. On the pitch, they’ve had their successes which include 17 playoff appearances, 3 regular season titles, 4 PDL final appearances, and 2 PDL Championships. They’ve also defeated Major League Soccer teams in US Open Cup competition. In 2000, as the Mid-Michigan Bucks, they defeated the New England Revolution by a score of 1-0. Then, in 2012, they earned a victory against the Chicago Fire by a score of 3-2.
The Conclusion of the Prologue
The season began with a cover story in the weekly Metro Times, a harbinger of the growth which continued during this fourth season at Cass Tech.
After three pre-season friendlies, Le Rouge was once again a participant in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Our opponent was another local team for which there is little to no respect for in the Supporter community – the Michigan Bucks.
Limited to 1,500 tickets, we bought them, used them, and echoed our voices within the tin can dome.
During the season, we filled our stadium with 3,000+ fans at every home game, with all sorts of fun like unfurling the traditional opening day tifo…
