The Black Pathers of Suburbia

Am I the only person who thinks it’s hilarious that the white 2-3 year old soccer team in my neighborhood just named themselves “The Black Panthers”?

Every time I think about it, I can’t help laughing.

They like panthers… and they like black… and power.

    Um, no. No you are not. I’m now imagining them having secret meetings during juice box time about how to best bring down “the man.” Awesome.

    That is seriously funny.

    Any of them named Malcolm?

    When Aidan was 3 he and the other kids named their soccer team “The Chickens”.

    It makes me wonder; where were the coaches during this naming session? Probably in the background trying hard to hide their laughter from the kids. It’s a pretty scary picture when you think about the little kiddies rising up in revolution.

    WOW!!! Talk about intimidation! I’d be scared to play against them.

  9. Soccer teams for 2-year olds? o.O Wouldn’t it be easier to herd kittens?
