On Friday, 9 of us from Minted went to play soccer in the park across the street.
My college friend Jordan, who works next door at another startup, walked through the park and said hello to me. I shouted back, "Can't talk now! Watching soccer!" It felt really nice, like a community where you're bumping into your friends, and having fun pickup games.
The marketing team turned out to be uniformly good at soccer.
There were three ladies sitting on the lawn, just behind one of our goals. At first they flinched and ducked whenever the ball came within 20 feet. By the end, they were completely unfazed even when the ball nearly hit them.
