Growing up in northeast Ohio, football ruled the world. American football. I was going to Friday night high school football games from the age of 2 and grew a great appreciation for the sport living with a father and brother that adored the sport as well. Actually, my dad still holds the record at my high school for longest touchdown pass. He was the quarterback back in his day!
I’d heard of soccer and had even seen some kids play it, but my high school didn’t have a soccer team at the time so the sport was unfamiliar to me. When I moved to Florida and met the man that would eventually become my husband, my eyes were open to the sport (and the men that play it :))! My husband grew up playing soccer and he introduced me to the Major Soccer League (MLS) and the World Cup and what all the fuss was about Man U! Being an athlete myself, I grew a great appreciation for the sport (and the men that play it :))
Today, I’m giving the Totally Tantalizing Tuesday spot to one of the best (and one of the hottest) US soccer players of my time – Carlos Bocanegra.
He’s played for the MLS Chicago Fire and currently for the Chivas USA. He’s played in the English Premiership for Fulham and in the French, Scottish and Spanish leagues. He’s played in multiple World Cups and was the captain of the men’s national soccer team for a period of time.
He also graciously posed nude in ESPN’s The Body Issue. Carlos, we are forever grateful for that one! 😉
Thanks for helping to convert me to a soccer fan, Carlos!
