  1. How can you sign a baby to soccer contract? Please tell me they’re going to wait a few years

  2. I hope he can play THE GAME well. Nothing worse than having a star prospect turn out to be horrible.

  3. O.K….. so a toddler kicks three stuffed soccer balls and they land in a toy bin. cool, but does that mean he could be a pro? 🙂 🙁
