Net Worth

January 9, 2009
By Alex Mackey, Louisville, KY

Alone, its 6 foot by 6 foot frame rests in a field
Rust forms under the orange flaking paint
A net is added to allow goals to be scored
Until a team takes the field its existence seems worthless

Outfitted in pads, young men cause havoc around it
Shots that seem faster than bullets are hurled in its direction.
A goalie is its last line of defense when attackmen have the ball
All the players hope to put the winning goal in the back of its net
