Travel outside of the United States and you will quickly realize that Futbol (or soccer as Americans call it) is extremely popular. During our year living in Costa Rica, my son Tristan became a fan of the sport and he is constantly looking for people to play with.
During a recent walk through downtown Sucre, we came across a pickup game of futbol taking place on the street. The players were all adults, but they didn't have a problem with Tristan jumping in and joining the game. We were extremely proud of how well he did, and the courage it took for him to jump into a crowd of adult who spoke a badly understands.
