I was trying to keep my posts this month related to Black History...well in a sense this post is...at least my son is making Black History in our immediate family by being the first to play soccer and play goalie...come to think of it, outside of his team mates he's the only black goalie I've seen on the field for the past three years.
Any wooo...this is a post to brag on my JONNY. He's playing in an indoor league (crazy club plays year round soccer that keeps me on the road 5-6 days a week) and it's challenging because of the small space. Tonight, he was on FIRE...yes it was a close game with boys a couple years older than our guys, but it was exciting. Jonathan played his butt off!
Jonathan's confidence was so high tonight, he steps out of the goal box and from this spot on the field, 3/4 of the length of the field mind you, he kicks the ball straight into the goal for a score! The GOALIE scores a GOAL! His team went wild!
note to self: scrapbook this historical event
