Foul? What foul?

Tiny kids playing sports.  Hilarious, right?  They run the wrong way, they get distracted really easily, they cry...

Now put them in a sport that not even all of America understands and watch with glee.

4 year olds playing soccer is just as hysterical as you think it would be.  Even more so when you're mildly hungover/possibly still drunk.

Our oldest niece turned 4 this year and finally gets to play soccer in their neighborhood league.  Saul played growing up, all through college, and is still on a men's league team, so he was pretty pumped when he found out she was interested.  We've been to a few of her games and oh my god, you guys - they're awesome.

They only play with 3 girls from each team on the field at a time and the field is like, a 16th of the size of a normal field.  They pretty much disregard the end lines and there is no goal keeper.  Their coaches stand behind each goal, cheering for he girls so they run the right way.  They don't officially keep score until they're 6, but you can bet your asses Saul and I are keeping tally (Brazil - niece's team - won 13-5 their first big deal).

Some photos, for your enjoyment:

The ball's right behind you!

Chatting with friends

Hot and tired


Belly laughs
