Before I got sick, I used to play soccer.  I liked it because you run a lot, and the exercise feels good.  I would play with one of my friends.  My favorite position was goalie.

I grew up hearing about soccer.  My older brothers play, and I used to go to tournaments.

I like the team Chivas from Guadalajara, Mexico.  I’ve seen them play on TV.  One day I’d like to meet a player from that team.

Someday I hope I’ll play soccer again.  Someday.
