Early one Sunday morning in January, an employee of the Palo Verde Irrigation District in Blythe arrived at his office building to a gruesome sight: a bloody body behind the wheel of a Chevy Cavalier parked in the driveway. The driver, a young man, had a gunshot wound to his head. A Glock .40-caliber pistol lay at his side. To the police detective who responded, it looked like a straightforward suicide. Then a cellphone rang on the passenger seat. On the line was the dead man's wife.

As Ricky Rodriguez trots around the perimeter of the soccer field in the Pond, he taps every hand hanging over the Plexiglas wall. Where the wall is too high, he touches the glass where a hand is pressed against it. Every hand. Before disappearing into the locker room, he is one of a few Splash players who stops to sign every autograph--banners, shirts, programs. Anything and everything. "You can't help but feel you're all in it together," Rodriguez says of the indoor soccer crowd.
