kid's got moves

six year old Madin Mohammed demonstrates some impressive futbol skills! he was born in algeria and is following in the footsteps of Zinedine Zidane. its amazing to watch MM's balance as he twists around and flicks the ball around his legs and other players!

i hope that MM stays healthy and uninjured over the next decade of his life, so all options are available to him when he's gets old enough to make big choices. i also hope that the big teams tracking him remember to give him enough space to be a kid and enjoy his life!

This reminds me that I had an idea about getting involved with kids like you mentioned earlier. When we lived in New Haven, it seemed like all the little kid soccer teams were coached by postdocs and grad students. It would be a bit of a commitment, but maybe a fun way to add some kids to your life.

thats a good idea! i think my travel schedule might prevent me from being able to make such a commitment though :( wonder if i could be an assistant coach?!
