we are big soccer fans over here. we watch a lot of soccer & play a lot of soccer. in fact, we were tempted to name t.j. after some of our favorite players (i wanted to call him xavi, todd wanted to go with didier, & cooper was all for dimitar berbatov). well cooper is turning out to be the biggest fanatic of all. he is dying to play on a real soccer team with his very own coach. he has some serious skills & speed. he has worn his brazil soccer uniform for 3 days straight now. the only way i was able to coax him out of it was by convincing him to put on his usa jersey instead. he is a soccer junkie. and let's be honest, this kid is much too skinny to hope for a career in any other sport.
