Getting a Kick Out of Soccer
Whenever I watch a soccer game, I always remember the first game in which I saw youngsters participate. The kids (one of them was mine) were about 5-or -years old and running helter-skelter about the field. Eventually, the referee/coach couldn’t take it any longer. He blew his whistle and hollered, “Stop, stop, stop! I want everyone to point in the direction of their goal.”
There was much casting about by the young athletes to determine just where that was. But eventually each figured it out. After that I’ve always had a warm spot in my heart for soccer. Any game that causes youngsters to search for their goal and move in that direction has some lifelong value.
Game over and everyone’s hungry for dinner. . . .
