3. Thank you for the "welcome"!

My son's college soccer team is my favorite! I don't have a favorite "pro team" but I watch many pro games and the FIFA World Cup is my favorite sporting event. I'm really looking onward to the 2014 games!

18. He loves the game and we love watching him play!

Soccer has been a big part of our lives since my son turned 8. Community soccer, middle school, high school, travel teams, now college. Great fun! And.... a lot of traveling over the years.

12. I read Skinner's note in Announcements....

So, I thought I'd introduce myself on this thread. It's really nice to have so many established members offer warm greetings to us "newbies". Much appreciated!

13. Welcome soccer1!!!

We have a Football/soccer group here! WC Qualifying getting under way in a couple of weeks!

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1215

Join and check it out (for what it's worth, I wasn't a die hard soccer fan until I married my husband and he converted me. I have always felt a little intimidated around others who have been fans forever, but no one has ever been condescending to me for not having a "favorite pro team", so please don't feel like you are "not fan enough" to join the group. I love the Men's National Team (heading to Jacksonville to watch a friendly against Scotland this weekend! USA USA!!)

16. I will join that forum.....

Thanks! I just love watching great soccer. I'm a fan of any team that's playing at the top of its game at any given event.I often root for the "underdogs" if they are out-playing the other team....I love "upsets" if the team doing the "upsetting" is playing great soccer.

My son plays DIII college soccer.... of course, I am a total supporter of his team, regardless of how they play at any given game.

That's what moms and dads do......
