Soccer isn’t just a past time for the Ramirez family…it’s a way of life. All of Sal’s family sans one sister played soccer and all of them  follow it. In fact the youngest of all the kids is currently playing college soccer.  I can’t say I didn’t know that when I married Sal that I would be a mistress at times to the game of Soccer.  When it’s time for the World Cup, I sit back for 3 months and wait until it’s over. Thank goodness its only every four years. I’ve survived two….so far.   Even though I find myself sleeping alone once in a while because Sal’s mistress is on tv, I don’t really mind. I think its a good outlet and hobby to have, and luckily America has never caught the bug like most European nations so I havent been totally overloaded. As you can see by the pictures above Roman has caught the bug, and I am happy about it. It will help him be active instead of watching tv or playing video games.  I want him to enjoy the outdoors and learn to be part of a team, while at the same time fostering a healthy competitive drive.  What I most look forward to is watching Sal coach Romans soccer team when they are little. I can just imagine Roman picking the flowfers and this group of kids all huddled around the ball but not quiet knowing what to do with it. Unfortunately with the way time is flying, it wont be to much longer…
