It's 7:
30 and the world is turnin'

Everybody's gettin' ready

And the toast is burnin'

But I guess I gotta find a place to start

And go from there

Doesn't matter

'Cause I'm not headin' anywhere


Sara, breakfast!

Early out of bed

Wanna wake up from the dreams

Inside my head

I just want a little time to find my way

Gotta get away

Gotta get away

It's just another crazy day

Stuck in traffic on a backed-up freeway


Two full minutes

for the electric toothbrush, huh?

You hear me?

Sara, you just got your braces off,

and I spent a fortune

on that new toothbrush.

So you better make those teeth sparkle.

Sara? You okay?

It's just another crazy day

I don't wanna get up early out of bed

Wanna wake up from the dreams

Inside my head

I just want a little time to find my way

Come on! Get in the car!


It's just another crazy day

Here. Here. Here.




Pass it.




Sub! Ref?

Jess, get in for Sara.

Take a seat.

All right. Pressure!

Pressure on the ball, Strikers!

Pull another stunt like that

and you'll be warming the bench.

Stunt? I schooled those guys.

Exactly. You were showboating

with two wide-open teammates.

It's a team game, Sara. Remember that.

I wasn't showboating. I just wanted to see

if I could beat a three v. one.

Yeah, well, now you know.

- Nice game, kiddo.

- Oh, yeah?

Coach said I was being selfish.

You should be taking shots,

even when you're covered.

- You're the best player on that team.

- They're all good, Dad.

Have you seen Regina out there?

Selfish. Believe me,

none of this will matter

when you get pulled up

to the training squad

for the National Team.

There's never been anybody your age.

Mia was older than you.

And you really think I'm good enough?

Sara, how many times

do I have to tell you,

with your talent, 10 years of training.

Youngest ever.

Say hi to your mom for me.

You call me

the minute you hear the good news

about joining the development squad.


Why don't you come inside

and say hi yourself?

I... I need to watch our game tapes.

We switched the lineup to a four-four-two.

- Hey. How did it go?

- We hammered them.

- I totally schooled a three v. one.

- Great. Did you have fun?

- You're weird, Mom.

- Yeah. My mom was weird, too.

- So, homework priorities are...

- Everything.

- But first I have to check my e-mail.

- Okay. 10 minutes.

Leave some electrons

for the rest of the world.

"...wish to thank you for attending

"the National Team player

development tryouts.

"Your skill and dedication

impressed our coaching staff so much

"that we hope to...

"We hope to invite you

to try out again next year

"for player development

with the U.S. National Team."

- Sara?

- Go away!

Sara! Hey, hey, hey. What's the matter?

- Come on, it can't be that bad.

- Yes, it is!

All right. All right.

I didn't make the cut.

Well, you know, half of me thinks that

that might not be that bad, and I...

I don't know. It's this half. It's this half.

Okay, that was dumb.

That was dumb. I'm sorry. I'm...

Honey, I'm sorry.

What do I tell Dad?


They make a big deal

about wanting some younger players.

I'm back.

Sara's better than those girls, Kevin.

I'm filing a protest.

I know. I know, Katie just gave me a look.

Look, you hear anything happening

with the National Team's

development squad, Kevin,

you let me know, okay?

All right. Good luck against Stanford.

Kate, I've got some extra time.

Let's double up on practices this week.

Hey, didn't see you yesterday.

How was your weekend?

- Any boys you want to tell me about?
