Heading to Europe…

europe 600x450 Heading to Europe…

Greetings fellow bloggers. In the coming weeks I will be visiting the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg for leisure and hope to bring you all some local flavor from the World Cup. I cant promise much more than that, but certainly hope to entertain you with stories of rowdy pubs and the orange army of fans I am sure to run into.

I was invited to contribute to this blog and hope to do so with flair. I have coached, refereed, and of course played soccer for more than 20 years. I understand the off-sides rule and can teach you. I have faced angry parents and piss-poor officials and can tell you all that SOCCER is still the best youth sport in America.

No doubt I will be rooting for the US on Saturday, and fully expect there to be some huge repercussion should the team not play to its “potential.”

-Enjoy
