I've got a new favorite team. Don't know the name of the team yet nor the exact schedule of games, but I do know that one of the players on it is one of my favorite people.
My nephew has signed up for his first soccer team. Yesterday he went and got his cleats, his soccer ball and his shin guards. As you can see here, he's very proud. I heard he was so excited about getting to start playing soccer he tried to wear his cleats to bed.
So, I've got a new favorite player. And while I don't know as much about soccer as I should, I'll be heading out in a few weeks to watch his games on Saturday. See. Two things to look forward to on fall Saturday--my nephew's soccer games and UT football games.
Of course, at least one of them I will know who the winner is before the game starts. My nephew is learning the fundamentals and rules of soccer, so they won't be keeping score. (That doesn't meant parents and proud uncles won't keep track of the zillion goals he will probably score...or more likely celebrate any goals that are scored by him as being bigger than winning the World Cup). I just hope he has as much fun playing the game as he did getting ready for it.
