Soccer in Harlem

A short but very telling post by Adam Spangler at This is American Soccer (sponsored by Nike) that illuminates the flavor of grassroots, world soccer right here in the US.  FC Harlem is a youth program that is actively reaching out to the West African and other diverse communities that neighbor its Harlem roots.  The quotes in this post (a note from Irv Smalls, FC Harlem head) are so indicative of the interest of kids in getting organzied and having an opportunity; they just wanna play.
