Youth Soccer: Remembering the First Game My Kid Played

Publix is running a touching TV ad about a young soccer player's first game. It's worth watching for any soccer parent.

The Main Point

Whether your kid is good or not so good, youth sports provide many memories. What I like best about this ad is that the perspective of the kid is what counts not the perspective of the parent. It is a great message for any youth sports parent.

This reminded me of my son's first soccer game. The game went by in a blur. I can't remember the details of the game, but he did score a goal. I do, however, vividly remember the conversation we had after the game. Nic stated very boldly, "Dad, Mom, that was the best soccer game of my life." Truer words were never spoken.
