2010 is an important year for me as a soccer fan, but not because the World Cup takes place on the continent of Africa for the first time (though that is, admittedly, big).
I’m a big fan of watching my sons play organized soccer here in Waterloo. The new season kicked off last week for all of them, and the big 2010 highlight for me is that my four-year-old has joined a team for the very first time this year! I’m pleased to note that, like his brothers before him, he managed to get uniform number six for his inaugural season; he’s a free man, and number one in my heart.
Between the three boys, this season I’ll be watching games five days a week at fields all over the city.
Organized soccer is available in my community thanks in large part to the work of many volunteers, and I’m grateful for that. My boys are too!
