Soccer and sun: a dangerous combination

Justin Eckl

Whoever’s genius idea it was to put the bleachers on the east side of the soccer field should be fired. If you like sitting outside and letting the afternoon sun burn a hole in your retina, then you’ll love Lawrence soccer this year, folks.

If you’re normal, then be advised to wear a hat or bring shades because it gets pretty tiring holding your hand up to your brow to shield the sun just so you can see the action.

The bleachers were in a fine place last year on the west side of the field, but people just can’t leave well enough alone, I guess.

I hope whoever’s idea this was is getting a hardy chuckle out of this because it’s completely illogical by any other standards.

Keep tinkering, Lawrence University. Some day you’ll get it right.
