In an attempt to live in harmony with the Haitians during this World Cup craziness, we are trying to teach Olie this crazy “Soccer” game (or “Football”, as they call it here…idiots). He’s a pretty ineffective striker, and it appears dribbling the ball will never be his forté, so we’ve stuck him in the back at the only position that he’s any good at: golie.
He’s not bad at stopping the ball, especially when not distracted by passerby’s and random piles of sand, and he liked the game so much that on day two he punctured a hole in his brand new ball…punk. But in all honesty, we don’t expect Olie to become the next Ka-ka or Pelé, so this is all just a way for him to practice before his big debut next year at the PUPPY BOWL!!!!
BTW, GO USA!!!
