Soccer is my favorite sport in the world. I love it like a fat kid loves cake. When I was younger, around the age of six, I was the best around my neighborhood. Things went wrong with me and my coach and I did not play soccer until the age of fifteen. From that age until now, all I do is play soccer. Truly it is a sport that not only I love, but my family as well. My father is part of the management side of a nonprofit team. Two of my older syblings play in that team; three of my younger siblings play for the Columbus Crew Juniors. Soccer is the greatest sport I have ever known.
Usually during the summer, I go to a place called Innis School where a lot of Somali's play soccer. I would come around six pm and be one of the few to show up early. As time rolls by, more and more people would show up. At least 100 people would show up; it is as if lions would come to feast of many animals. The field would be broken up into three sections. Everybody would play their hearts out for at least four hours.
Soccer is all around sport for everyone. It impacts everybody in the Somali Community. Old men and women and children, who can not play with these young men, would come and watch this gathering of great players put on a show for people. soccer is my favorite hobby and it can unite people.
