34. And 'the beautiful game' welcomes you! The youth league in our town has 1700 kids and

growing strong. I volunteer coached for over ten years and loved (almost) every hour of it. It really is a terrific sport for kids because it requires teamwork, because it's basically simple, but loaded with complexity, because it's great exercise (one of the U.S. players ran TEN miles in ONE game at the World Cup), because it doesn't cost more then the price of a ball, because the rest of the world plays it, you will learn about other cultures, because, because, because, so many more reasons...

Sure, basketball, and some other sports have those qualities too, but right now, during World Cup, it's futbol!
