The world is in a sports frenzy. Nations have selected their best and sent them to Brazil. The request is simple.
Play hard. Win. Bring home the World Cup.
Several in my neighborhood are planning for the future. They run. They kick. They make up a few of their own rules to accommodate their understanding and physical capabilities.
Some will go on to play on organized teams. The youth leagues are popular here. Many schools have programs. At least one of the local universities has a good history and reputation.
Run. Kick. Score. Over and over and over. In cool weather and on warm sunny days. Take a water break when it gets hot.
