“I met a girl at a soccer game. I think she’s a keeper”

"She’s a keeper” means that a person has found a good person for a partnership. “Keeper” in soccer (association football) means a “goalkeeper.”

“#manrules if she watches football… She’s a keeper” was posted on Twitter on September 8, 2009. “Let you watch football? She’s a keeper!” was posted on Twitter on September 28, 2009. “She’s a keeper, and I aint talkin’ bout a soccer goalie” was posted on Twitter on November 22, 2010.


Wikipedia: Goalkeeper (association football)
Goalkeeper, often shortened to keeper or goalie, is one of the major positions of association football. It is the most specialised position in the sport. The goalkeeper’s primary role is to prevent the opposing team from successfully moving the ball over the defended goal-line (between the posts and under the crossbar). This is accomplished by the goalkeeper moving into the path of the ball and either catching it or directing it away from the vicinity of the goal line. Within the penalty area goalkeepers are able to use their hands, making them (outside of throw-ins) the only players on the field permitted to handle the ball. Goalkeepers usually perform goal kicks, and also give commands to their defence during corner kicks, direct and indirect free kicks, and marking.

Or she could spend an inordinate amount of time standing at one end of a soccer pitch.
